So her's a little bit more about the Emigrant Trails and Soldier Meadow rides.

The enthusiasm from you So. Cal. guys is Great!!

I'm always amazed at how much water there is in the desert in early summer.

You can still see the ruts from the wagon wheels of pioneers on there way to Oregon in the mid 1800s

on this section of the Applegate Trail.

And I can't even count how many old mines, ranches, and homesteads we explore.

On the second day of both rides near the end of our day we visit the site of the

B-24D Crash site in Southern Oregon. On February 9th 1945 the 11 member crew left Gowen Field

Near Boise Idaho for a Training mission to Hamilton Field in California. The plane crashed on the

rocky peaks at about 10:00 pm that night all crewmen were lost

Well so there's a little more about the rides I'll post a little more later
Thanks Bob
