    Thanks for posting your pictures. We have kind of let this thread get inactive. Mtseeker and I did a ride through the Blues yesterday but didn't take any pictures.

    my bikes think they are no longer wanted... too many around the house projects and work (four letter word) demands too the point we are selling Janet's XT as it has sat since the end of last winter...

    You know if you sell it you will wish you hadn't in another year when things slow down.

    she sold the XT tonight... I think she needs a VanVan or a TW... but we are pretty busy so bikes are taking second place... now if I could talk her into selling all of the drag racing stuff (that we have not used going on three years) we could fund that motorcycle trip in Europe

    Is it easy to get to that uphill side of Palouse Falls? Been to the falls many times but always just went into the state park where you're looking back across at The Falls.

    The falls are to the left just off camera. You're looking downstream from the falls. The parking lot is behind me.

    Believe me, there's no way I'm going to hike those cliffs wearing twenty pounds of Kevlar prophylactic.

    Got it but your pic is still throwing me as it sure looks like the water is running off a cliff (ie-the falls) in the upper portion of the shot. :hmmmmm

    Threw me off too, at first. Then I thought, it's looking downstream, not upstream. :D

    Here's the full panorama of the Falls. Sorry about the light quality. Great riding day, but the sunlight was harsh.
