So I guess Rock creek, Chamberlin-Goodnoe, Goodnoe station, or Hoctor Rds.
Rock Creek it is!!!! Whahoo Rocky got it.

I thought the smoke rising up from the hills from the fire near Goldendale last summer would give the clue that would get people there. I didn't think the windmill would do it since there are so many of them all over the place.

Good job

Good job
I thought you may have taken that picture on your way to or from the ladies ride, so I dug the maps out and started researching once I saw the windmill. We've ridden some of the Roads around Goodnoe Hills but our pics didn't have the cars in them, so I'm guessing we haven't ridden Rock Creek Road.

Thanks for making me dig the maps out and research some of the Area between Spokane and Biggs!

OMB, the area Alan guessed is located on pages 87 & 88 of the 2004 BM Maps, I have the old maps and he was using a newer set, there is some great riding in that area, and yes some of it is real rough. We have ridden it before with Hayshaker and his buddy OMT, I believe we first met MasterMarine on one of those rides and he was riding his kool Kawasaki.


I have to go look for a photo.

Looks like Pass Creek Summit.

Road 122 that drops down on to Hiway 93 just south of Mackay.

Custer Motorway?

It has been a few years but the summit looks like the high point before dropping down toward Challis near Mill Creek Summit [near Tollgate Ruins]

Hint Time

Don't have any more pictures of the "location" that really shows much more. So I am going to include several pictures that we took on the same day that we first visited the "location." The pictures are in chronological order of when they were taken during the day, beginning with one taken in the morning and ending with a picture of where we spent the night.















BTW: It was a loooooong day....

I knew I'd been there, I see my bike in one of your pictures! So I suppose I can't guess.
