    My son lives in Idaho, so every year I load up the bikes and make the drive to Boise and beyond.....
    I tried to get some Cali boys to go up there, but you know what they say :eek1

    It rained good the week before I got there, temps were cooling and the fires were laying down, perfect timing. :freaky

    16 hours up the lonely hwy, get some sleep and stock up for the next stop

    Some of the Boise boys met us up there, we took an easy "blue trail" to start with;

    MotoMergan used to be a Cali boy but he has adapted well to the northern climbs;

    25 miles in 5 hours?! :huh That was quite the trail with the first 5 miles being the hardest....

    At this point we had a couple tired riders and a yellowjacket victim who were thinking of home
    [​IMG]

    or at least a place to rest
    [​IMG]

    A few of us still had some gas so we thought we'd ride up this
    [​IMG]

    we cleared 3 or 4 trees off the trail until we gave up, ironwood deadfall isn't easy to cut or break....
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Oh well, might as well go do some easy trails
    [​IMG]

    Meadow to Loon Lake, we thought about hiking to the plane crash, for 1/2 a second.....

    Day 2 started with ice on the seats and hot coffee :deal

    The creek was steaming (outlet from hot springs)
    [​IMG]

    Back through the easy stuff
    [​IMG]

    across the river
    [​IMG]

    and upstream this time
    [​IMG]

    not how it's done
    [​IMG]

    good dirt, good trail
    [​IMG]

    somewhere we missed the trail junction and did not stay on the river, we heard it has some scary spots....next time :cry
    We ended up on Whangdoodle trail, what a name, what a trail! :freaky

    naked trees
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    back to the green stuff

    Still on day 2 :huh

    Realize I don't take too many pics of the good (hard) stuff, usually it's at a breather spot waiting for the boys to clean something or catch up....but it seems like I got a lot of pics this trip :clap

    back to whangdoodle!

    [​IMG]

    and pop out up here;
    [​IMG]
    to go down there
