Too easy....the boatlaunch at the end of old Vantage Hwy from Silica road. You can see the new Vantage Bridge in the background. Lots of history in that little area. The pavement is the old Hwy 10 before I-90 that was flooded when Wanapum Dam was built. The old bridge is now Central Ferry bridge after it was moved when the area flooded. My stomping grounds...I rode my 990 up the hill from there a couple of weeks ago.

Where would you be to see this view and what is the location across the water?

I'm thinking that looks like the Palouse River Canyon so you'd have to be standing somewhere up near Palouse Falls and we're looking across to Lyons Ferry?

INCORRECT I didn't think it would be that tough. Hundreds of thousands of people have seen this same view and many ADV riders have been to the opposite shore. The road/trail in the picture is closed to traffic but I can say for sure that the creek crossing on a 990 is a bugger.

Hundreds of thousands?

Are you on the Gorge Trail looking across the Columbia at Quilomene Cove?

Close enough, standing behind the Gorge Amphitheater stage looking across at the Quilomene. Most people never get this close to the fence. There is an old homestead at the bottom of the draw we are looking down. I rode a Honda 90 down the talus slope from about where the picture was taken. Of course this was long before the Gorge existed.

Go for it DRONE..

Living in a cabin down there back during homesteading days woulda been bleak. Like this time of year the sunrise would be about, oh wait, it would never rise.

OK, so here's my next pic. Please name this road.



By the way, that's the infamous inmate Jettn Jim in black. If you ever meet Jim, yer gonna remember him.

You know, that's a pretty decent guess. But, no, not Dug Bar, not the Imnaha Canyon.

I'm at work and don't have my maps handy but that's the road from Asotin to Buckhorn Lookout There's a great view if you climb the bank that is straight ahead of the bikes and across the road. There's a geocache way up that stinking hill and Rainbow007 and I had to grab it a few years ago.

Ladybug is correct. That's the Joseph Creek Road about 3 miles south of where the Grande Ronde River dumps into the Snake. Here's another pic taken from the same spot but looking south. That's the Grand Ronde.



You don't need a dual sport bike to go this way from Asotin to Enterprise, Oregon. Any big old adventure bike can do it. I did it in my sidecar rig.

Directions--from Asotin you go south 25 miles on the Snake River Road, then cross the Grande Ronde River to Joseph Creek Road. Six miles from the bridge the road crosses the state line and becomes Horse Creek Road. It's another 10 miles to the end of Horse Creek Canyon, then Horse Creek Road becomes Cold Springs Road (FR4680) and climbs to the ridge line (this little climb is the only bad section of road you'll find). In 7 miles, the road t-bones into Buckhorn Road (FR46). Take a left and follow FR46 for another 7 miles then take a left onto FR780. The Buckhorn Lookout is a mile up the road.

From there you can go south 40 miles to Enterprise by following Buckhorn to Zumwalt. Or you can go north on Buckhorn (the way you just came) and stay on it for about 30 miles where it dumps into Crow Creek Road--follow this road for another 30 miles into Enterprise. Beautiful scenery everywhere and in places you'll find 60mph+ gravel.

Edit--I just realized that I met Ladybug at Buckhorn Lookout the day I did that ride and we got somebody to take our picture. She's one of these inmates pictured here (I'm the big lug with the dog). No wonder she knew that road!!

Oops, it looks like I'm up and I wasn't paying attention. Sorry for the delay.

Before I post my challenge picture I will give you a few from the place Drone was at for his pic.

Here's the view from the hillside I hiked up to grab a geocache:


I think this is the rock in Drone's picture:


And if you hike back down the right way you can find some flowers along the way:
