    Idaho/Oregon Car/Bike Trip with Photos

    Click here for my photo diary of our camping trip in Oregon and Idaho.

    My two recommendations for "must-do" rides:

    1. Trail of the Coeur d'Alene. This is 71 miles of smooth flat pavement with no cars and great views.



    2. Rim drive around Crater Lake. This is a 34 mile ride with lots of hills, but nothing too steep.

    I like the rakish tilt to the helmet Al.

    WOW!! What a great trip!! Thanks for sharing.

    In regards to the stairs with the troughs alongside for wheeling your bikes up and down, we have a set of steps very similar to that in Fairport. A gent that I used to work with thought they were intended for riding down and almost broke his arm trying.

    He was all set to complain to the town until I explained their intended use.

    Thanks for sharing, Al, nice pics! I've done #2 on your list and I'm happy to see you had better weather than us.

    As the others have said, your pictures are beautiful and it looks like an amazing trip, although a bit more rugged than I could handle. However, I find the most impressive part of your story is your spontaneous piano playing at the senior center! I'm sure you made the day for a number of your audience! Nice work!
