You need to walk down to the old powerhouse down the hill next time you go,
it's worth the walk to see the 100+ year old powerhouse stuff.

We only got one good rainstorm, the rest was just light sprinkles.
It was enough to send my wife back home, but I just headed East like you, and it was better

Great shot AJ, i'd like to check that out sometime.

If it was just after five, it probably was me. If you had saluted, I might have recognized you.

Heal fast, Hells Canyon is coming up... hmm, how come I don't see your name on the list?

OPEN??? Did you get over Lolo Pass or did they just get the road fixed on the Zig Zag side? Thought AJ had tried from our side and still too much snow...

the concrete barricade on the zigzag side is gone, but snow still blocks the path a few miles up every road we went on yesterday. there a few power line trails that looked fun i want to play on.

White River Falls is a cool spot on a hot day,...or anyday !!
The 100+ year old powerhouse is pretty neat to walk through.
and....it's a great excuse to ride through Jordan Creek on the way to Tygh Valley !!

It appears I have been "approved" for Saturday, before we head out riding down to Hells.
I likely won't bring the M-Home this year, we have not yet registered or insured it yet this year.
So a tent,...it is...I'll stay Friday night, maybe Saturday night...we'll see...

I'm going to leave that alone, but let something like that slip around a campfire and I am not responsible
