No, its almost on top of a mountain. Go North
I found both of the roads and I think that if I had a wider picture to the right that those would have been in the frame or close. About 12 air miles with the Idaho Centennial trail between them.
It looks like if you were coming from Superior on the main rd you could turn right onto the roads you guessed. If so you turned off too soon Over the hill first, then turn off.
Close enough! You are up!
Rd 320 comes from Red Ives and intersects with Rd 715 and somewhere between there and Black Canyon Rd 250 it turns into Rd 720 . Also known as Fly Hill Rd
Under about 10 feet of snow that road is calling to me. Thanks to mvzeke, 650x and others for making me explore via google earth to find cool places to ride. Not this one , I have been there just want to go back.
for the last 3 years my kids summer job has been maintaining trails for the forrest service (3 yr contract) they worked on just over 100 miles from the Lochsa to the St Joe with some small side trails thrown in. Beautiful country. A great job for a teenage boy and girl. No internet, no phone, no computer, no vidoe games, camping for 2 months. I think the last trail section they did was off the Fly hill road down to the river.
Here we go again...... Name the Location
Hints in a day or two if necessary.
Is that up by the Fremont powerhouse?
In Eastern Oregon?

Nope, not in Washington State.
Rock Creek Powerhouse
Here's a link with cool information about it:
Correct. Here is a few more pictures.
This was going to be my next "hint" picture if no one guessed it.
Although the first guess of Fremont was not correct, it has ties to this powerhouse. In the late 1920's both power plants ran together to supply power to Baker City. My grand father was the head operator at the Fremont power plant in the late 1920's. He use to tell me a lot about the power plants and said that Rock Creek was the "controller" power plant in that they (Fremont) received their operating orders from Rock Creek and adjusted their electrical output depending upon the orders they received from Rock Creek via a one wire telephone line that ran between the two power plants. I never took the time to find (and visit) Rock Creek until a couple years ago. All I knew was it was located near Haines OR. Did some online research and found it. It is currently private property, but is open to the public for tours for a limited period of time each year. The current owners told us when we visited a couple years ago they were trying to restore the plant and hope to be able to again generate power in the near future. Well worth the visit.

MadChap, you're up.
I build the stuff that replaces the controls that replaced those controls decades ago. Wow! Scary
650X if you ever want to include some of this power stuff on a ride let me know.
