Check-Ins for this Challenge Point

 I stopped at a few challenge points while on my annual trip to Enterprise Oregon for the June ADVRider rally.  On the way up I stopped at the Osborne Gravesite, Nez Pierce Battle Field, Tolo Lake, and St Gertrudes Monastery.   

On the return trip to Nampa I attempted to get to the GPS location for the Smelter-Saloon Site but I couldn’t get past the snow.  Bear Cemetery was easy enough.  Next I headed to Summers Grave.  I was very close to Summers but I was stopped by a wall of snow.  I took pictures of my attempts at Smelter & Summer just in case I don’t get back up in that area.
