    Is it a "named" or "numbered" trail? Or neither? It REALLY looks like Moon Pass Rd., a mile or two north of Avery.

    Biting my lip since I saw this one.

    I'm having flashbacks. This was one of my Thunder Roads, in the "olden days". Old Ford Flathead 8 at full throttle thru here. There used to be a phone or power pole in the center of the road, a bit north of here.

    It later became a training road for my rally adventures.

    WINNER! I would have also accepted Old Milwaukee Rd. Railroad Grade. My bad for labeling it a 'trail' in the first post! The 'river' below is Nelson Creek.

    Tourist...we might need to have you expand a bit on your exploits back in the day on this road. Sounds interesting to say the least! :evil

    Now I don't feel guilty about taking so many guesses. :lol3 You threw me off; I would have had it out of the gate!

    :D Tourist, I think every man who was once an immature adolescent has a vivid memory of a road like that. :norton Mine was "Goat Hill Rd." in Bechtelsville, PA. I feel lucky to be alive, as I'm sure many of us do!



    Where is this waterfall?

    Hint: I could whack a golf ball into another state from where I took the picture.

    A bit vague, but I'll give it to ya! It is about a mile upstream from the dam on Hell's Canyon Road.

    Have at it, Handy!

    Are you talking about Deep Creek? I think that's the name of it -- just down from Big Bar on the Idaho side??

    Don't know the actual name of it; I snapped the pic years ago and found it's location again on google earth. It is on the ID side and is just down from Big Bar, so you sound right!

    What do you mean PUI??? So I got back to my maps, Yankee Fork is the name of the dredging area. Bonanza in the name of the ghost town. Your pic and my pic below don't look that different. So, while it may not have been the right location, it wasn't that different in terrain. Here's my pic:
