Recently connected with some experienced guys from the Hood River/White Salmon/Seattle areas that were looking for an alternative to the Washington Backcountry Discovery Route as there was some recent snow in the higher sections and it probably wouldnt go at this time. Got a call from Rob and Pete about the possibility of taking a little desert tour down here in Oregon. My good buddy Geoff and I did some re-arranging of our responsibilities (pushed them aside ) and put together some old and new routes for a 3 ride down towards the Nevada border. When my fingers thaw out . . . . . . there will be more soon!
