    You're up.

    It is one of the gravel roads just east of 19.

    I believe the building was a school.

    Side note: After riding about 20 miles of gravel out of Fossil, I came upon a "No Trespassing" sign posted by Wilderness Unlimited. The sign was positioned such that it seemed to be claiming the road itself, and threatened arrest for continuing. To be safe, I turned around, but I have my suspicions that is not their road, and they just want to keep the riff raff away. Signs by other property owners along that road were facing in a way that claimed only the land along the road.

    The road showed on the map as going through to 19, and it looked like a public road. I have heard that Wilderness Unlimited has a habit of claiming more than they actually own, so I want to check with the Sheriff to see whether the sign is legit.

    I think that may have been Buckhorn Lane, then, Or the beginning of Armstrong Canyon Rd.
    I went there specifically looking for access to the John Day River, as Armstrong heads right to river's edge.
    I saw the same damn sign, paused, revved my motor, went forward,,,,,but stopped and turned around also.
    I felt the same way, it didn't look right, but the sign was well posted and it delivered a clear message.

    The John Day is a "Wild & Scenic River" through that area and even River navigation is by permit only, I understand.
    But still, I musta blew right past that school :lol3

    coming up....

    River rd, in the Yakima Canyon, on the Yakima river. The bridge looked very familiar to me, but took a while to place it. I've blasted down that road many times and never taken the time to take a photo. A very fun stretch of asphalt that thankfully I have never managed to receive a performance award on.

    Sorry, been ww...wo-oo....working all day.

    I thought the road was called "Canyon Rd",... but for sure you got way closer than my stab at MortimerSickles pic.
    There's no way I'da got his without his givaway hints.
    Yer....UP!!

    I knew the suspension bridge would be easy.
    Every biker takes that road instead of the Interstate between Yakima & Ellensburg.
    50mph is VERY hard to do on that sweet road :deal

    When we going back to OBDR #4, Steve-O??? It's caaaallllllingggg

    Short wait at the border. Let's see if I can post something worthy before I talk to customs.

    I guess that last one was actually canyon rd, must have had a brain fart... Too much mexican food.

    In this case an lte ipad world. I conned my work into buying me one. I've got this case on the way for carrying it in my soft luggage on my bike. Poron foam, just like in my Klim gloves.

    I just connected my ipad to the tv in my hotel room and streamed video from my home dvr...

    I stopped at that place at about 8:30 pm in late September. I planned to continue further but I hit some foot deep dried jeeper mud ruts that seemed like a bad idea in the dark. There were a bunch of cows next door and the tent flapping in the wind kept tickling my critter sensor.

    Kittitas is probably on the far left side of the photo. Ellensburg is front and center, but there isn't really anything visible with the morning haze.

    Your turn.
