Shamrock Tour Lewiston ID.
« on: June 15, 2020, 06:43:30 pm »
Going on a trip, leaving 6-24-20. First Portland  to Hood River Or.
Then to Lewiston Id. Will do a four leaf clover there, and just check out the area.
Next to Elum Wa , to  the east slope of Washingtons cascades. Found some spokes off a hub there ; but no clovers.
Any spots not to miss, let me know

Looks like you've got a great trip planned! And you meant 'Cle Elum', correct? I don't recall just an 'Elum' town/area.

I wish I saved the routes we did when we used Moscow as our base camp area. I recall doing rides around Colfax, Potlatch, Palouse, Starbuck and Dodge. Great roads and some scenic areas!

Not sure of the route/direction you'll be coming, but check out the wind farms from Vantage westbound to Ellensburg/Cle Elum. Here's a ride vid I did not too long ago...

And if you intend to make it to the Cascades, ie Snoqualmie pass area, be sure to check out the backroads off I-90 to Denny Creek. Ride vid is going eastbound but worth riding westbound too...

We did Mt Rainier CW loop last weekend if you have time or want to see what the conditions looked like...

I'll have to find time to edit & post up the Rowena Crest roads we did a few years ago but since you're in that area, you might have ridden it plenty of times. :)

Have a great trip!
