Day 3 to Klenschimidt Grade,McCall,YellowPine ect.

Headed out of Woodhead Park CG and made our way up .HWY 71 to Klenschimidt Grade
Here is the route we took

Coming down the back side of Klenschimidt Grade to Bear

Taking a break at a site of the Old Mail Cabin

The road down to Lost Valley Reservoir was fast and furious.

Lost Valley Reservoir

We had lunch and gassed up in McCall and headed out past Lower Payette Lake to some great scenery

Followed Lick Creek for a ways

Continued to Yellow Pine

Here is the General Store in Yellow Pine

Main street of Yellow Pine

Continued on to Elk Summit

More great scenery heading down the summit.

We were about 20+ miles from Warren still and came to a section of the road that was washed out but passable. I was trying to save My clutch which was almost gone and was trying not to stopped and clipped the tree where Mike is sitting and knock my case off.

The next section I was not as lucky and did not see a log to the left and this was the effect. It not much fun trying to navigate through tight areas without a clutch. This time I broke the lock off my Gobi and had to use Tom tie downs he brought for just this situation. Leave it to Tom to have most everything.

This pic shows the log to the left which I hit.

More great scenery

We ended at Shiefer Campground. No one else was there.

We needed to change our planes since my clutch was giving me grief and instead of heading to elk City we decided to head to Orofino to a KTM shop to get my bike fixed. The Piston Clutch was leaking pretty bad and we called earlier and found they had a PISTON CLUTCH kit for my bike and would hold it until we got there.
Ended the day with 201 miles 18mph aver in 11hrs 05 min.
Attached is day 3 route.
