Cool pictures. I have a friend that moved to Idaho. He is still there. I can see why.

Nice pics. I see the silver writing never washed off yet on the TA headlight shroud. We're gonna need a few more pics......

Really nice.

I can't wait to get some warmer weather and go explore some more.

Thanks for the reminder of how beautiful things are here.

Good to hear from you H,

The writing is still there, plus a few more stickers, a few more scratches and another pound or two of epoxy.

Did you click the links below the pics? A few day rides have gotten lost in the volume of ADV, but I'll add some more when the snow melts.

Where in Idaho?

Most immigrants land in the Boise area. Way different from where I live. Boise, and south Idaho, has some dramatic scenery. Big Sky stuff. Deserts, big mountains and a lot of openness. Big Sky stuff. Moscow is more a comfortable mix of farm and forest lands with very rugged forested mountains to the east.

Fall ride to Elk City.


A crispy Nov morning in Moscow, but it will be warmer in the valley.




Uof I



I pick up Roy in Lewiston. A warm up snack in Kooskia then east on the Sourth Fork of the Clearwater. This is one of my favorite pieces of pavement in the NW. I let Nell have her head and don't take any pictures.





Roy and I run up the Road to Darby, a few miles, till we hit snow. Some poseur pics


Notice the headlight reflection. This is a deep dark canyon.


Not much traffic, but a few firewood gatherers.




Climbing out of the valley at Mount Idaho.







That far ridge is where we just came from, the edge of the Frank Church Wilderness.




Just a few house here, now, but this was one of the early towns in Idaho (before Grangeville). A center for pioneers and gold miners during the Nez Perce Wars.



Across the Prairie to Winchester





Down Winchester Grade to the Clearwater Valley and on to Lewiston for another warm-up at Roys. It was a cold dark ride home. Over 300 mi today.

I found another. I tagged some pics onto Steep and Rockys Hells Canyon Report.

Everyone knows that Hells Canyon is the deepest in North America, but which is second, third, etc. Well they are all here. Snake, Salmon, Grande Ronde, and Imnaha Rivers all have deep canyon. There are probably streams with mile deep canyons.

The Snake has a road near its full length. A lot of this ID/OR border is the Hells Canyon Nat. Rec. Area. The bit from Hells Canyon Dam to Dug Bar is Wilderness River. Hess Road is near the Wilderness Border in the south. The upshot of this is that we are riding on the edge of a huge wilderness.

Near Hells Canyon Dam.
