    Nice. We don't often get such prose to accompany spectacular photos.

    Well done.

    Excellent ride report, I try to get to this area of Oregon at least once a year. I missed it last year, rode the Oregon Back Country Discovery Route instead but am planning a ride for this next summer that will make up for it.

    It's amazing how surreal and beautiful everything can be when you're lost! Sure is rewarding when you get out though! nice pics!

    Glad you enjoyed seeing some of the Owyhees. It's a surprising place.

    He never bothered me. :D I guess it must have been that sign board I saw from above—don't know why it seemed to be walking.

    Yeah, but...

    the next time I'm there I'll probably be thinking of your sighting. :yikes
    I'll just make sure it's daylight and not too close to the witching hour. :grim

    Hi Jason,

    I'm the guy your brother's future mother-in-law warned you about (ha!) Just wanted to say that I've really enjoyed reading about your adventure and seeing the photos. Your photography and narrative skills are awesome! Look forward to meeting you in person sometime.

    Regards,

    That's right, we talked about you at Thanksgiving. :D Glad you've enjoyed some of our tales. I'll probably see you this summer ...
