Travels with King Rocco (LoLo motorway, Magruder corridor)

Hello my name is Rocco and I am the King of adventure riders!




I love to get buckled in and go exploring! On this trip I went from Spokane WA on the pavement and then went over 750 miles on the dirt. We drove for four days and camped out three nights.







This is the guy that drives me around. His name is Larry.





He drives KTM 990.





I am buckled up so lets GO!

This is the route we took. Here are some way points: Wallace, Moon Pass ,Avery, Simmons Lookout, Powell Range station/Lochsa Lodge, Lolo Motor way, Lowell, Selway Falls, Elk City, Magruder Corridor, Darby ,Gibbons Pass, Rock Creek.....they use Garmin 650 gps but I think it is smarter than they are...






These are old railroad tunnels that are sort of spooky








View from a old railroad bridge....





Avery Montana. Next gas will be over 200 miles away, which will be Powell ID.

At certain alititudes we would see millions of this plant called bear grass.







Here I am taking a break....







One reoccurring theme on this trip will be forest fires. I am sure you know that forests have life cycles and fire is an important part...

This is Powell Ranger station. We were out of gas when we pulled up...the next gas station is over 50 miles away...just as we arrived we discovered that the pumps had been broken for two days prior, this was the first day they were up and running.....you could say we were very happy



They had good food too!
