Lewis And Clark Trail

After spending a lovely night in Kamiah’s Hearthstone Lodge, we had a nice breakfast at the Hearthstone Bakery, fueled up and continued west for the final part of our journey.

Lewis And Clark Trail

It was temperate outside and we rode in shirt sleeves, across Highway 12, otherwise known as the Lewis & Clark Trail. Our first stop would be Lewiston, ID where we checked out the new Hell’s Canyon Harley Davidson, however being Sunday they were closed, so we continued westward. We’ll have to ride back out to get our shirts on another trip…

Crossing into Clarkston, WA we followed the Snake River a bit before climbing up and over Alpowa Summit at 2785 ft before dropping back down into the winding canyons and smaller hills through the Palouse following Pataha Creek into Pomeroy, WA.through Dodge junction and on to Delaney, WA where we continued on Highway 12 crossing over the Tucannon River then dry land all the way into Dayton, and into Waitsburg,

WA. Here we stopped at a favorite Whiskey Canyon Sports Bar & Grill for some cool drinks and appetizers. After cooling down and staving off hunger it was time to put the last 50 miles in to the house, only stopping to fuel in Burbank.

In all our trip tallied nearly 1200 miles over 4.25 days through 4 states. I would recommend the trip however with one caveat, if we were to ride it again we might bypass Idaho city and travel from Ontario, OR to Stanley. ID by way of Garden Valley and Grimes Pass, especially if it’s warm as that would get us into elevation sooner. See you on the next one.
