Oregon Desert Tour

We made a 100 mile dirt loop through the Oregon desert last weekend. We stopped for lunch in a picture perfect camp ground where we made hot tea to warm up. Most of the ride was in the low 40's F. Our bikes, BMW F800 GS and Triumph Explorer performed awesomely and my riding partner was 2up with his girlie, What a great rider he is. Personally im not ready for 2up dirt yet as I am a new rider.
We saw all sorts of desert creachers like a heard of deer, Antelope, large birds of prey, Marmots and the like. It was a great day trip for us.

Here is a short video of the trip with some pretty nice desert views we took in along this ride.

Do you have GPS tracks or something indicating your route. That looks like some real nice area to ride.

petroglyph's are from an area called map rock near marsing idaho. there are many more in this area as well.

the area is succor creek state park near the Idaho Oregon boarder. We also saw a movie crew in there working called playground earth. we didnt stop to talk with them but they did photograph us passing by.

That's why they don't look familiar. I thought you might have found them on the Oregon part of your trip. Thanks for the info.
