Stanley, ID to Hines, OR
Morning in Stanley, Idaho
The motel folk were nice. They left us towels to wipe down our bikes. It got a little frosty here at 6200ft last night!
Be careful...Regular in parts of Idaho is 85 octane! Had to buy plus!
The road out of town...West.
Banner Summit - Top of the Sawtooth range.
More good stuff along the way. Sawtooth Range from the west.
We lost SPOT right about here...
The Payette River
About 20 miles west of Lowman (I got the name confused with Lowell, up north) we stop for a break at this grass airstrip, Just east of Garden Valley, ID. They do a good job of keeping it green!
Also ran into a pair of ranchers and their dogs at that spot. I guess they're good buddies with the Hatfields of Brothers, OR. They were waiting for a truckload of cattle to arrive.
At this point, Casey realizes that SPOT had jumped ship and calls our friend Jenny to have her track it's current location. It was back in Lowman...WEAK! Like a dumbass, I failed to input the exact coordinates of the SPOT (I actually didn't think of it until later.). Casey asks me, "What would you do?" I told him I'd go back for it!
To be continued...
