Just some pictures that show the trip from my eyes (which now hurt thanks to EZ's pasty white ass - Great pictures BTW EZ)
JC9 and I rode over from Maryhill State Park Thursday morning. Some areas were pretty desolate
The view from climb up to Tollgate was a taste of things to come.
Got to the Log House Campground just in time to join the tent city, and crack open a well deserved cold beer.
Nice bikes, and nice views from the Campground
The Log House is a special place for Motorcyclists. Thanks guys.
First class facilities (actually very handy)
The next day I headed down to Dug Bar with a group ride led by Asrvior. Some of the great views along the way.
About half way there
Made it there finally. The ride was a true adventure, but never did find the "Bar". At least there was a great one I could enjoy back in Imnaha, after a little "excitement".
After a great lunch and cold drink among ADV friends. I joined a group of riders blazing up to Hat Point. I lost my "mojo" on the ride up, think I was getting tired. Fortunately Marks flat tires, gave me an excuse to take a couple breaks on the way down.
Some ADV sightings from the top of the Hat Point lookout
The view from the top
Fisherman led a nice (dusty) ride on Saturday to Troy
This really is Canyon country. This was just a creek - the river canyons were MUCH larger
Strange finds on the way to Flora
But has seen better days
ADV's doin their part for the community. Pie eating is a "part" right?
Typical camp view. Had some great talks and nice relaxin in the shade. My favorite part...okay maybe not as fun as chasing Mark back to Imnaha to call the troops out to pick a certain MC that broke down. I was finally was getting the hang of KLR on the loose roads, it really did a great job when I took all the luggage off.
Saw lots of wildlife right outside of town. I probably saw hundreds of deer on this trip, along with a skunk, a pheasant, eagles and a very talented rock-surfing camp mutt.
Gratuitus KLR shot. She did pretty good on this trip. Hauled my crap and did good off-road - just not both at the same time.
Typical shot on the ride home. May look peaceful, but was actually angry with wind.
This was a great trip. I'm already looking forward to it next year.
