    I wish I was going to be around this weekend, I'd try and meet you somewhere along the St Joe. I'm only about an hour + from St Marie and I love that road. I was fishing on the NF CDA last Monday, fish are small but lots of them. Good luck!

    Over the last couple years I've done the Wallowa Mountain Loop and the St. Joes Scenic Byway based on your posts. Thanks for the good advice.

    With all the forest fire smoke of the last 8 days or so mostly kindof cleared up me and my Lewiston riding buddy thought it prudent to try and get in one more good road bike romp down into eastern and central oregon.. that is just flat some of the best riding to be had as far as i am concernd, and this riding season is rapidly drawing to a close. Especially in the higher country. Not a long trip... maybe a couple nights in cheap flea bag hotels. Of course covid proof cheap flea bags hotels.. ha ha.. So i readied the viffer and set off for Lewiston on a Thursday afternoon.
    20200919_120612.jpg

    After a mellow cruise southbound on Hwy 95 i arrived at the top of the spiral hwy where i have stopped on many occasions to take in the incredible Clearwater / Snake River valley view. Today it was still so hazy in the valley there was no point in taking a picture, so you will just have to squint ur eyes and use ur imagination! Regardless the view was still cool. Ben met me atop the grade on his KLX and we had fun bombing down the grade of the spiral hwy and back to his place for the evening.

    My anxiety was raised up though as i had to bump start the viffer at the top of the hill.. maybe i left the key on for too long..., maybe that old battery was about done..?? The viffer has never not started.. Down in the outback of eastern oregon is no place for a bike that might not start... I was fretting.. ugh.
