    Well, so my trip back was not quite as fun as I had hoped, since I had that weird bug bite on my foot (which is better now, after a doc visit, and some super strong antibiotics :bluduh ) Anyway, I did get all my photos up a day or 2 after the trip, and since I don't want to flood the forum with all 830~ photos and videos, y'all should just go to the gallery and flip thru the pages and see what I saw :D

    here is the linky- https://ratty2austin.smugmug.com/Adventure-Motorcycling/West-Fest-2010/13092830_CYnZ6#949196048_UGV9M

    (oh, and I have some video clips too!!! check these out for sure :deal )

    We did some great rides from the Darby Camp over the couple of days of West Fest (Greywolf11, MyDogSparky, and me BHB)!:freaky

    On that nice Friday we rode via a dirt pass South into Idaho to a remote Fire Lookout 3K above the North Fork of the Salmon River:
    [​IMG]

    Then out to a long 25 mile ridge with lots of loose freshly graded two track...that sucked :lol3

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Finally we reach the volunteer manned Fire Lookout above the Salmon River!:freaky
    A cool old cabin complete with a stove and cots still is in use below the lookout.
    [​IMG]

    The views looking into the Frank Church Wilderness and South over the Salmon River are freaking amazing:super

    That Saturday of West Fest we rode up to the Hells Half Acre Fire Lookout out off the Magruder Corridor (turn off is just a few miles before the Magruder Ranger Station)

    Just a few pans from the amazing vistas of the Selway Bitteroot Range and the Frank Church Wilderness in Idaho to the south.
