Beautiful! I'm looking into a DRZ in the next year or so and would love to hit up this area then. The Transalp is just a bit too much for me for those kinds of roads the way I have it set up. How long did it take you to get to Christmas Valley from Corvallis? I'm at OSU and would love to go out that way some time.
Always chase your dreams. Even if you don't catch them, you'll have a hell of a time trying.
