I searched high and low all day today around Hood River County. I rode every road that I knew had some hiking or biking capacities, but with no success. I think it's safe to say that Mel ruined her own game!

More hints please? Possibly some more pictures for a frame of reference?

I'd be willing to bet Mike and Gnarly know right where it is....but since you need some help, here's a little more of a hint:

The road is paved and narrow
The water is fresh and ice cold
The forest is dense with much shade to give
But you must know your Northwest history
to find the tag below.

Ha ha

Hello Riders:

Nice tag!

That's a great place to be on a hot summer day; I really like that place. The WPA did some nice work, take a moment to admire the stonemason's craftsmanship.

Better yet, at this time of year it's one of the best places to pick thimble berries and salmon berries.

In the winter months the moss grows on the asphalt like a cheap shag carpet, and it's lethally slippery.

Thanks for the memories of that sylvan oasis.

Good Riding To You All,

Quixote

Are there any other landmarks nearby? I'm not very good with qualitative hints!

Hello Riders:

An amusing coincidence:

While Mel was taking that photograph, a "geocacher" was nearby, and on his recent online post on a completely different website he refers to Mel as a "a motorcycle buzzard". I can't decide if the intent was derogatory or complimentary, but I kind of like that moniker....

What's really entertaining is that one obscure thread in a motorcycle forum can be linked to another even more obscure forum.

OK, I'm going back to work.

Good Riding To You All:

Quixote

I know where that two tunnel pic was taken, but I can't recall the name of the body of water. I might take the long way to work and check it out...

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife has it listed as Tunnel Lake. Also, it was last stocked on April 24 with 2974 rainbow trout. I have yet to catch anything there!

Sorry MeRock... as my daughter knows well, I don't give answers lol. If it truly gets stuck, I'll give some more hints...but as you can see, there is at least one person out there already that recognizes it. Enjoy the adventure in trying to find things, and possibly some research to get there. There are several clues in what has been given

Too funny if those geocachers were the folks that pulled up ins Subaru just as I was getting ready to leave. Small world!!

All you guys playing this game have WAY too much time on your hands. Get a life, and a job.

I checked out Lolo pass today until it turns to gravel but with no luck. I thought I had the correct road, but apparently not! It met the requirements of historic, narrow, paved, wooded, and mossy. This tag is making me burn a lot of gas!

Anyway, finding these things is always an adventure... this is just the first one where I haven't a clue where it is!

EDIT: After hours of searching on Google, I finally found it in someone's travel blog! I'll get this one on my way to work tomorrow.

Good Morning Riders:

I'm gravely concerned about our lack of familiarity with local landmarks. The Pioneers didn't arrive here by dead reckoning; they knew those old roads well....



Good Riding To You All,

Quixote
