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.

The lower portion of the battlefield precedes the old Whitebird grade, well worth it.

The Cuprum Hermit showed me this location while heading north on our multi-day riding/camping trip. The  Old Whitebird Grade which runs through the battle site, used to be the only North/South road in the area. It’s banked, switchback turns were a joy to ride – until I found a pile of gravel as I exited a turn. After that, I rode in a slightly less spirited fashion and got back up on US95 without additional drama.

Another great challenge site.  I never tire of visiting and reading about the history here.
