    How about naming this location and it's historical significance

    Yep right road....Dead Mailman Rock isn't the name and the historical significance came from many years prior to both the mailman and Automobiles...

    Well, actually I think it’s called Tilden Rock, or at least that’s what “Kingfish” used to call it. Of course the road might not even be called Stagecoach Road any more, I think it’s Linslaw Road now?

    Anyway, don’t know the hysterical significance other than they whittled that bitch out by hand for the very first single lane wagon road through there; to replace the trails that had been used prior to that. It was all about a better route to the Casino for free slot play and the Lucky Duck drawing!

    Tilden rock is it. Stagecoach road is still the name. Here is the historical significance....

    "An open top stage was used on this route as a covered stage would not go under Tilden Rock. The rock hung completely over the road and could be reached by rid- ers on the stage."

    It took six hours to go from Mapleton to Hale (1.5 miles past our house) and six more on to Eugene. That was if conditions were perfect. Knowing how hard it rains here, that had to be a miserable trip.

    The picture I took doesn't reflect the original problem. With modern equipment and the need to fit loaded log trucks down the road they blasted alot of the rock away for clearence.

    Ok, let’s see if we can keep Sanchez control of this thread away from those Idaho guys for awhile...

    Where are these Falls, and what is their name?

    Well, I’ll be damned if that wasn’t world record quick!! So much for Sanchez control - I apparently suck.

    I've been saving that photo to use here! We were just there in September of this year.
    I'm not sure I have any photos here at work so I may not post until I get home, but I'll go through my files and check.

    It may be a trick, but I'll hazard a guess. Parkdale, OR

    Take it anyway!
    The event was the first (of many, I hope) Apple Jam's Roaming Rallies.

    I made the Apple Jam / Parkdale connection, but didn't know the RR started at the Grange.
