The Posse Rides Again.....The OBDR To Seneca

In a previous RR, I made reference to a comment my son made about me and my riding partners. He refers to us as the Posse. Well since we have known each other since we were basically kids, I guess that could be true.
The plan was to ride Section 4 of the Oregon Backcountry Discovery Route. Basically it runs fom Sisters, OR. over to Seneca, OR. about 260 miles of scenic backcountry.


Well dressed Sheriff Martin "Dorksport"

and Cowboy Gordon

We headed to Troutdale via Marine Drive and wound around (You know like "The Long Way Around"!) towards Sandy, then down to Estacada and followed the Clackamas River down to Detroit Lake. A very nice ride.

"My ass back hurts and we have matching pants!"

From Detroit lake I hooked up on some tracks someone had posted but can't remember who. They followed some logging roads up and over the ridge down to Hiway 22. Nice 30 mile detour. Any way thanks who ever posted them.

We hit 22 and followed it to 20 and on over to Camp Sherman. Stopped at the Camp Sherman Store.

For a burger

and a beer

and some gas

Headed down the Metolius River to find camp

Made a fire and BS'd, then went to bed.

A 200 mile day
