    We were getting tired of the endless north idaho winter in cda, so we watched the internets for better weather nearby.Lewiston had the best forecast for the next couple days, so the decision is made. We haul our bikes to the canyon. Lewiston Id is the sump of the state, it is the lowest point. The Snake river flows out of Hells Canyon, absorbs the Clearwater river, and it all drains into the communist state of Washington at Lewiston. It is also a magnificent valley that enjoys mild weather and lots of sunshine..:evil

    So here we go! A quick jaunt up the Snake river canyon form Asotin WA. The day couldnt be any nicer for Feb.18..
    BTW we we using the "lightweight" bikes today! does this still count??
