Hey Dick, I'm glad you finally learned how to post pics. .
You need to stop by the shop this summer.
The continental divide (Rockies) runs through Idaho and Western Montana. The bulk of Idaho is the Rocky Mountains. The panhandle (North) is more to the West but still in there. Very green and lush up there. Southern Idaho is quite a bit of desert and high desert scenery.
Gods Country, that's what I'm sayin...
LOVE the Palouse! My wife's from Lewiston (and a U of I grad). Thanks for sharing. Makes me wanna saddle up.
I think Sara Palin is a graduate of U of I as well.
Really nice pictures. Wish I had a chance to ride around there more when I was there.
Thanks for posting.
I think so too, I know she went there and NIC. She was born up in Sandpoint.
Beautiful pictures, I'm from Lewiston and live in Moses Lake. Hope to move to Spokane soon.
I likes me some Idaho
I found another old report.
"A beautiful day in the neighborhood" snow pics.
Gramps retired from the seed company in Genessee when I was real small. I remember the old road down into Lewiston - one day I'm gonna ride that sucker.
Subscribed. Keep it coming. Thanks.
thanks for sharing
Hi'a Dick, good to know your out and about. I had to chuckle when I saw the Kibby Dome as I look at it every time I'm visiting my daughter. I've been up there three times this last summer and always think of having a cup of Joe with you. Anyway beautiful photographs, the palouse is such a contrast in topography to my part of Idaho I always love coming up to ride those rolling hills and dales. We truly do have a unique and diversified robust deluge of splendor.
OK, some from my part of Idaho.. the southwest and some of the least populated land in the lower 48
Keep it Up Tourist I will be making numerous trips up this summer to visit my daughter, we should sit and chat sometime; I'll shoot you a PM before I come up.
WOW!! Gorgeous! I would not be opposed to you posting many, many more pics of your stomping grounds.
Great pics, thanks for sharing.
Lots of beautiful country in Idaho.
When you come up give a holler and we'll have a cuppa. I really liked your ride into east Idaho this last year. Good photos.
Up here in north Idaho trees are out greatest legacy, but it has a downside...low visibility. When I go to south Idaho I'm always impressed with the Big Sky Country. You are a good ambassador for Idaho.
Glad everyone enjoys the pics. Riding is going to start soon, and I'll have more pics. The low snow is gone and I saw yellowjackets this week so spring is here.
There is good riding most everywhere, but we do have some great diversity in Idaho, and a huge volume of outstanding dual sport riding. We are sort of the Baja of the USA. Some die hards have found us, but without national parks, most travelers just pass on by. Most don't realize our whole state is a nat. park.
I go back and forth on promoting Idaho or hiding it. I notice a couple of new ADVriders in Idaho and wonder how many non riders this equals. We could house a lot of people, (Great Britain has 60 million is a similar size) but it would ruin Idaho as we know it.
All you ADVriders come to Idaho and enjoy our mountains, deserts, rivers and great riding, then go home.
Off my soapbox, for now.
