Having breakfast in Powell. Charging computer
Spending the night in motel/bar/restaurant complex in Alder, MT. Got rained on big time getting out of Yellowstone,and then off and on after. Lows in the 30s tonight, maybe rain...........
Across the street from the cafe I had breakfast. The Bighorn Basin is fed water for agriculture by a lot of canals one of which you can see
Rode then Chief Joseph Scenic over Dead Indian Pass
From the overlook
Artwork at the overlook. Beartooth Mtn between the riders
At the bridge over Clarks Fork
Both sides now
What you lookin' at?
Today buffalo (sorry, bison) were as prevalent as snow yesterday. No, more prevalent. They were everywhere
Mama and 2 cubs
Oh yeah. At least I got out of the construction before the big black cloud got me
In 1959 we (Mom, Grampa, brother, lady friend) were in Yellowstone for two nights. The third night we were in the Tetons when all this happened
Gale force winds and impending rain ran me out, didn't get to study as much as I would have liked
Came through 'historic' Virginia City, MT and Nevada City.
Just too many pictures and I probably did not pick the best of them at that.
Ohh, the sights you'll see! Wonderful! And hey -- I see those woods, and that bear... and what is he doing? ;-) And another thing -- Ox Shoeing?
Went to the bar for a beer and a burger. Good stuff! They have casino poker table with a lady dealer and they are at it.
I saw a couple old buildings down a street and asked about the town. Yes, it is old. Evidently it was pretty much all one town from Virginia City to here in the gold rush of the 1860s. There used to be 10,000 people living through here!
We haven't had food shot lately
I am having a day of rest at the Pink House Campground (US owned). The Pink House is no longer here, a lady artist back when thought the place needed some color and painted her house pink, shocking. Yesterday was a grand day for riding so of course I overdid it, but what a ride.
When I stopped at Alder I had been thinking to stop at Dillon, MT; another hour down the road. Animal husbandry shots on the way.
Dillon was obviously a mining town in the day and has some interesting sites/sights.
This couple block long stretch of historic Dillon has quite a few buildings and displays. Luckily they were closed or I wouldn't be here yet.
I can hear the comments from here..........
Glass windowed door on the crapper!?
A Fordson (ford & son)
It wasn't all about mining though
Big train station
How's that for a boom truck?
Starting down the gravel to Lemhi Pass
Hope I don't have to go off to the left.......
This way looks better
This Lemhi Pass road (Lewis & Clark route) passes through both government and private land. Had already seen a sign fof Bar Double T ranch and here are some of their buldings.
Can you imagine a 125 mile day with that?
At a fork in the road
I saw no one this 25 or so mile road until the last 2 miles
Pretty sure it said Continental Divide and it is the MT/ID state line here
This side qualifies as STEEP
Too many pictures on one page for the little 'puter
About half way down
Agency Creek has been beside the road all the way from the top. It is much larger here
Back on the pavement
Had lunch in Salmon, ID and then the road followed the Salmon River
As Kenny Rogers sang, somethin's burnin'
These were climbing Lost Trail Pass. Top is ID/MT line. Think the lost trail refers to nobody knows why or where L & C came over this mountain.
Things you see
Then I ran Lolo Pass (US 12). Didn't have the camera in my hand when I passed the sign saying Winding Road Next 99 Miles. It did.
Back to Idaho
At first the curves are coming down the mounrtain. Then the road follows the Clearwater River.
And I had no traffic
High speed traffic down there
What a beautiful ride you have going there!
This is a message from Opa to y'all, no wifi where he is tonight.
"Rode Rattlesnake Grade today, adding Oregon to list of states. And of course had a milkshake at Boggans Oasis."
Sorry about the small photo. I took it off my own phone for your viewing pleasure. Haven't posted a pic here before.
You done good. Anyone wants to see it bigger just has to tap or click on it.
