    Name that Road

    I had this idea while killing some time in the garage the other day:
    I'll post a photo of a road I've ridden and see how many people can ID the road.
    Let's see where this goes.
    -Kerry.

    OR 3 and WA 129 descending northbound into Asotin and Clarkston WA, with the Columbia River beyond. A fabulous road.

    What a great idea for a fun thread. It is amazing the ideas that come out of our garage dens.

    That didn't take long!

    dbrick: you're probably correct on the route numbers but I know it as Lewiston Hill Road. I was on my way to the Oregon Rally last July riding from Ontario via Alberta, B.C. and Idaho when I first saw this road quite by chance. There was a rest area and when I approached the sign to read it, I saw below this magnificent ribbon of pavement.
    After riding down and back up, twice, I was on my way.

    My best guess would be the Big Bend area of southern Texas.
    Awesome riding and outrageous scenery, I was through the area in 1999 the year after I got my first BMW, an 100 RT. The road along the river to Presidio was especially "entertaining".

    Looks like highway 12 in Utah by Escalante.

    Another easy one

    I can't wait to retire and have a fixed income. The one I have now is always broke.

    It is! In the National Park at Soltol Vista at sunset. Gorgeous!
