    Okay, sorry for the delay.

    Name the road and the "Mountain" on the right side of the photo. (The peak on the left side has a different name).

    Surprised no one has answered this yet. It is only about 6 miles from I-90.

    I'd hike Mt. Si more if there wasn't a crowd every time I go. Here's a shot from the top of Haystack.

    Close. This is a larger portion of the same conglomerate rock with a different name.

    Edit - The video is Funny Rocks, but the title says Moon Rocks too. You're up.

    Edit: I just now did a little Google cheating, and came up with the name "Saddle Creek Ranch," but I 'm not sure they are talking about the same one.

    I don't know the name of the road I am on here, so just tell me what two towns I am between.

    Bonus points for the road name.

    Where has everybody been? I had forgotten all about this thread.

    I guess it's time for a hint.

    The town to the south has a very small automobile museum.

    The town to the north has a combination lunch counter/gift shop/Powell's Books.

    Before you leave, how about identifying this pic. You are more likely than many to have been there,



    More hints:

    The name of the town to the north sounds a little like a form of protection.

    The name of the town to the south is a term someone might use to refer to me.

    :lol3

    Between Condon and Fossil; somewhere close to Hwy 19, John Day Hwy.
    These highway locations (if I guessed right) are tough for me to recognize,
    I slow down sometimes,

    but on those North/Central Oregon empty two-lane highways...

    I.
    Just.
    can't.
    go.
    slow.

    I can't ride 55 :norton

    I still haven't been on enough of the gravel roads around there to recognize this spot.
    Even though I've spent some time twice this year cruising around there already.
    That area keeps calling me back.
    ....On the list

    Edit: It's not Snipton Canyon Rd, Butte Creek Rd, or Hoover Canyon Rd, Nor Richmond or Seales Rd.
    .....unless I blew right past it....
    That spot (Church, school, Post Office?) would've prompted me to stop and take a pic, just like you, I think....
