Update. I added some pics on page 2 of the washed out road. I went back out there this past weekend with my dirtbike and took more photos.

Excellent RR!

How about that washed out road off the Alvord? Last year it was a perfectly groomed (recently bladed) rally track and now it's all but gone! You are right, that must've been one hell of a rain storm!

Great Ride Report

Thanks for sharing. I live in eastern Washington and need to plan a trip through Oregon. Your ride report is inspiring. Thanks for taking the time to put it all together.

Cool trip you had there. Do you by chance have a scanned map, or GPS tracks for that one? I'd like to make that loop next year.

Thx!

Sorry, I don't use a GPS. I have lots of maps, but none that shows it all in one shot.

Thanks for the great ride report. I grew up in John Day but never got very far south by east . . . . Excellent photos. Would love to spend some time out that way.
