    I saw what you did there. Pretty clever.


    You are looking at a drainage and a road. The road is named for the creek or river down there. What road is it?

    I knew that would be the first guess! Sadly that is a wrong guess.

    Do I get half credit for correctly guessing the first mistake?

    If you get half credit for that then you would get half credit for another wrong answer and it would be your turn. Without a correct guess. :scratch We can't have that. :lol2 So to answer your question. NO :kat :smile6

    Backup a second...where is "French Creek Rd"? Sorry to break the rhythm but often the "name" of the location could be on the moon.

    French Creek Rd. is part of IDBDR and is on the way to Burgdorf Hot Springs, ID from Riggins, ID.

    French Creek looks like no problem from the school-bus and the same from The Burgdorf C.G...Then it get's real twisty....

    But, but, there was only one correct wrong answer, so another one would be impossible to get. :D

    The snowcapped peaks in the distance kinda look like the Steens. Maybe from the Fish Creek Rd.

    Can't say I recognize the derelict barn, tho.

    I think you could fly up it with a lot more confidence than you could fly down it. I was glad to be shod with full knobs on it.

    I know some of the Boise riders have been on this road. It is not "Wet Doe" road. :lol3 That is a hint.
