    If that's the right location, I'd like to know if you made a loop of that ride or did you have to do a out and back? Howard Creek / Brown Rd.?

    Rondowa is correct. (I am going to answer for Liv2rydktms to save time)

    Rondowa, so named because it stands at the junction of Grande Ronde and Wallowa rivers.

    When we rode in there, we started near the town of Wallowa and rode in and back out the same way. Some of the roads we had planned to ride were blocked and took some rerouting to find an open route in. Had planned to ride out a different way towards the Maxville/Promise road, but that road was closed, so ended up getting out the way we rode in.

    Craig, you're up

    Is this the box on the first 30 mph corner heading out of Lower Stanley towards Sunbeam? Soaked there a few times....but the tub was a classic wood stave.

    I have not forgotten that Rattle Snake infested place. In the early eighties while living in LaGrande one of my roommates was trying to access an old mine just upstream from there. There was a bit more water than he planned on and his Jeep drowned and floated down into a deep hole. When we got up there just one corner of the roll bar was all that was sticking out of the river. Lots of Swimming, diving and winching. Freezing cold water also.

    Drunk enough to go git another truck, attempt to pull it out,...

    Big small town news!!
    Got blood tests over limit as I recall, and some county jail time.
