You know that's one of the many things that makes this website so great. You post something and someone makes a comment. So you go and you look at their profile. It's interesting to see where people live. But then it's even more interesting to go and look into some of their adventures. And then you have people come along like TheAdmiral. I've now decided to put Idaho on my "Absolutely must not visit list" along with Colorado. You see over the years I've learned a little bit about myself. And I've learned that, if I go there,,, I might not ever want to leave.

I'm slowly getting familiar with Admiral's tracks. If it's the one I'm thinking, by Ontario, I've been driving through Sand Hollow for years and every time feeling what a fine little place it is. Now there's many fine places from here to there and beyond, and I always want to stay, and to go, or just follow someone's tracks. My notion of fine may be twisted though (having formed in Pendleton), lots of sage, basalt and june grass in the mix, and sandstone, juniper and granite, oh, and some trees here and there. One day I'll get to explore that wet side of the Cascades. You won't even need to put Utah on your list - it's just a blank twixt Idaho and Colorado.

Yep! Though I did have to email directions to my mom and dad...who use a gps! Sand Hollow is so hard to find, especially when it's right off the freeway.

jjdun, I know how you feel. I hope I win the lottery some day so I can retire and live all over! So many great riding places!

I have a old 82 XL 500 I need to drag out some time. If you run out there definitely get out to beaver slide into Dan to the bottom. If you ride through the tunnel you can actually ride almost to the next tunnel. That whole areas out there is beautiful.
xrcrasher hu, my XLR took a couple of naps Saturday. I'm working on the right report right now.

Really cool stuff and have enjoyed this thread a lot. Thanks for sharing.

Might have been there when the tracks washed out, and not worth getting them out, cheaper to replace the rolling stock (rail cars) than rebuild the rail line to retrieve them.

exactly. There's been so much damage and so much of the track have been completely washed out it's just not cost-effective. And now the port of Tillamook has purchased the entire line and they're in the process of converting it to a tracks to trails. So it's kind of neat to leave stuff like that around for hikers to check out on their adventures.
