Beautifull !!

My Bro recently moved out your way (Troutdale) from South Carolina. I have been out to visit him and am awestruck by the beauty. I have spent many days now on the Sandy chasing steelhead. But I am always thinking how sweet it would be to ride my 640A out there. We are working on getting him another bike. Maybe when he gets another you could show him around on some trails one day. Keep posting love the pics!

Hood River

Great pictures thanks for sharing them! Im originally from Seattle and miss the Pac North West area, so very cool to see your ride. I like the "no trace" approach to riding, good work!

HR to The Dalles

No rain, no snow and warm so time to get out and go for a ride! As for great shots that was not going to happen due to the fact that it was still just a little gray out. Ended up with 78 miles of dry roads.

Looking East at the Columbia River









Heading West up the Rowena loops on the old Columbia River Gorge Scenic Hwy.






Lookout at the Mayer State Park overlook (looking East up the Columbia River).


Heading back into the Hood River Valley and Home...

Sunny and clear, sorry!

We really need more snow but as long as the weather is like this we just can't help it... So we took a couple hours to see how far we could make it before hitting snow going toward Wahtum Lake, and we made it a lot further than we should this time of year (for the Hood River riders, we made it to the East facing slope after you make the turn up the canyon).

Lake Branch road




The right turn, going up! (And the sign should say "Wahtum" not "Whatum")


End of the road for now!


Mt Hood to the south




Just one snow patch to cross.


A few rocks and it was back home to work... Maybe we can get back on skis some day and save riding for summer!!!

Save the riding for Summer? It sure looked a bit like Summer when I looked out my window this morning.......and went to work

I like your thread, Craig. I'm sure sorry I haven't seen this until today. Is that Crash with you in these shots? My wife needs to see more women riding.

Thanks for sharing!!

Yes, that is "Crash Clay" and she was up-holding her call sign today in the snow! I thought about taking the photo (had camera in hand) but thought better of it knowing I had to go home with her!

If you both want to go out on an easy ride some time let us know.

Recognized pretty much all of that! There is a lot of good dirt to be had from HR to TD and north of White Salmon. Will be out there riding again when most of the snow melts.

We made it to 2880' on the Wahtum Rd. and at one point could look over at Lolo Pass which is at 3440'. The only thing that will stop some one from going over it is the north slopes that are holding the snow! I still say that we will be skiing waist deep in Feb.

Taking the long way to watch Super Bowl

Over 50 degrees today, so we took a 45 mile short-cut to our friends home that is five miles away to watch the Super Bowl.


















And 45 miles later we make it just in time for the 2nd Qt.
