    My wife bought an entire sheepskin at a yard sale years ago, been making my own seat covers for my bikes ever since. I think they add a fair amount of comfort, warm when it's cool and versey vicey.

    Well the sun is out. It's definitely time to hit the road,,, or trail,,, or whatever happens to be in front of you.
    So I keep reading all these right reports out here. I guess I'll take a stab at this. :wink:
    it seems like I keep getting my ride ideas by reading the rides that the guys in the hood keep doing. so, I headed up to gorge on the Washington side to Lyle. And then headed up north for some exploring.

    Another way to make a sheepskin pad is to get one of those sheepskin wash mitts to wash cars with and cut it open :wink:

    WOW......The last batch of pictures were great :clap


    I did not get to ride over the weekend but I did score some points by taking my wife to the tulip festival in Woodburn, OR.

    Although not the quality of some of the photos I've seen in this thread, here are a few shots straight out of the camera...

    Is the park open for overnight camping? It would be a fun drive down in the hack; spend the night then tour the Palouse a bit the next day. Thanks for the pics.

    Thanks for the comments!

    The palouse in general is awesome riding now, and yes there is some camping space at the PFSP, i would check the web site, and maybe avoid the weekend if possible there were a LOT of peeps there on Sunday. Our route went through Benge, Lancaster, St John, Rock lk area, Starbuck, Dusty, and hwy 27 from Rockford to Steptoe Butte.

    Pardon MY ignorance, but if you visit in July or August, where's the best place to go for a swim? Upstream or downstream?
