Looks like the aftermath of the School Fire in the Blues.
My guess is off of the 4022 rd NW of Clearwater LO. Near the "Wheatfield geocache" ??

We got back to Enterprise around 11pm after our asrvivor fiasco that night.


That is a GREAT series of roads to ride in a hurry !!
As fast as we could ride it .....it was a sweet uphill ride.

But, I missed all these sights.
I think it would be a GREAT series of roads to ride again,........ when I'm not in a hurry

Is that I-90 down in the valley there? Somewhere between Coure d'Alene and Missoula--like Silverton area?

eastwa it's not in the Blues and there's not a cache at this location.

Drone, you're close at least as in the big picture close.... I-90 is down there some where and it is N. Idaho. See if you can Narrow it down a bit more.

I really don't need the road name/number the closest town would be good.

I've ridden a bit over more towards Thompson Falls and the Clark Fork drainage, but have not ridden in the I-90 corridor, except of course I've driven the slab itself many times. But that's how I recognized the area--from running down to Missoula.

For you other guessers, I think we can assume that the pic was taken in the summertime due to lack of snow, and by looking at the clouds it sure looks like we are looking in a generally southward direction. So you are somewhere north of I-90. Yes?

Yes, North of I-90.

This is one of the roads I took to get there.


And this is another view from either the same spot or very close to it.

Sorry Buttercup you're headed the wrong way - - - And here I thought you had a good sense of direction.

You said the nearest town, huh? And you didn't bite on Silverton when I mentioned it, and somebody else said Wallace and got no reply. And you say you're north of I-90? So I go to my Benchmark map and there doesn't seem to be ANY towns north of I-90--there are only things that look like "places" but not towns.

So now I go to Google Maps satellite images and check out these places to see if any looks like a town. Pritchard--no--it has a tavern and that's all. Gem--no--there's nothing there. Burke--no--there are quite a few buildings there but I looked it up and it's a ghost town. Murray--oh! oh! there's a Post Office in Murray! That makes it a town.

I guess Murray.

Drone, you have gone to a lot of work and all those places are considered towns by the people that live there, even though they are small and considered ghosttowns. I did ride through Burke on the way to where I ended up.


Here's a picture of the town I'm looking for:


I'm surprised The Tourist hasn't popped in and identified this location.

Oh, look, there are flags flying in Burke! Yup--definitely people there.

Well that town in the new pic looks like its down there in the river bottom next to the interstate, and the only town we haven't guessed is Mullan. And that town looks like it's mostly on the north side of the interstate and Mullen is mostly on the north side of the interstate, so . . . .

Mullan.

I've been watching.

who said there were "No more towns." You mean Enaville isn't a town?

LB were you up at the Star Mine?

I would sit on top of a mountain with google earth and look around, trying to identify peaks in the distance. I concluded that there are a lot of zig zags roads in the Silver Valley.
