Muddy ride on the Walla Walla River!

My wife had a horse event in north eastern Oregon this past weekend, so while she competed with the horses I took the opportunity to hook up with my friends and squeeze in a quick day ride on the Walla Walla river! No camping since the RV was at the fairgrounds/horse event.

We left the trucks around 10:00 and started up the river valley. The weather was decent, with only a light mist soaking the brush.



The trails are very lightly used in this system. Good traction everywhere.



We continued climbing as the sun started to break out of the clouds for us.





On top of the ridge, and far above the river, we reached the 5000ft "target" elevation. Recon, for Memorial Day weekend in a few weeks . . . .



Dropping back into the South Fork drainage heading back, the sun came out for good.



A good ride for sure. We are all ready for the summer riding season to kick in full swing! This makes for better riding, camping and of course better ride reports.
Thanks from logjump, Hawaii-Rider, Idle and 2 others

Today I learned that Walla Walla isn't in Australia!

Beautiful landscape. Almost like a jungle compared to what I'm used to.

That looks like some awesome scenery! What are those massive things, hills? What is that stuff on the ground, mud? Ha ha ha! I have to travel several hundred km from here to see tracks like that, very nice!

P.S. Tourist, i thought it must have been down here somewhere too until i read the post!

haha i thought it sounded Australian aswell, i came in here expecting it to be in the Eastern States somewhere!

But now i see the photo's and i'm jealous as!

I also have to travel 3hrs to get anywhere as hilly and lush as that!

Nice ride report, but really you're just teasing us people that don't have snow, mountains and trails all to ourselves!

I love riding that trail.. the last time I was there my father in law was riding my sons crf 100 and he went over the handle bars and the bike went tumbling down into the river.. the water was high and moving fast. I had to tie a rope to me and a loop on another rope and waded waist deep out in to the river.. I could just see the red reflection of the plastic because it has got stuck on a log. a lot of time and super exhaustion to finally get it out and up the hill to the trail. walked the bike back to the camp ground and tipped the bike on end drained the motor. bike started right up.. loved it. only think that happened was the right foot peg got bent. one of my favorite places to ride..
