For my own adventure ride I chose caves: Smith’s Crack and Devil’s Hole lava tube caves in Elmore County.  Twisting this year’s challenge theme of Ghost Towns & Lookouts, perhaps the caves were prehistoric residences of early mankind.  Now abandon ghost dwelling of ancient civilization, well, maybe not.  Regardless, I felt this would be a good motorcycle adventure.  These two caves are close together, but are hard to find with having good GPS coordinates. 

Smith’s Crack / Cave (N 43.2303 / W115.83774) required a twenty foot down climb, about 100 yards in length with several small rooms. As with most caves you might take a couple of lights, helmet, water, and nice to have a buddy too.  At this cave, a rope maybe helpful to climb out.  In the picture, I am at the east end of Smith’s Crack / Cave.  Lava rock crack is actually called a lava fissure.  The main entrance is a small hole (N 43.23053 / W 115.83891) about 100 feet to the west along the lava rock crack / fissure. Smith’s Crack / Cave is periodically visited by young adults with some minor graffiti, but nothing like Kuna Cave’s graffiti and litter.

Devil’s Hole / Cave (N 43.22669/ W115.83419) is approximately tenth of mile away to the east and is believe to be connected to Smith’s Crack.  Devil’s Hole / Cave is more technical climbing down a forty foot shaft, recommended to take 300’ of climbing rope.  Currently there are already climbing ropes in place, but bring your own climbing ropes for safety reasons.  Floor of the cave is muddy, but supposedly recedes in late summer.  Different than other local lube caves, Devil’s Hole gets less use, because it requires climbing experience and equipment.

I am new to this adventure riding.  I don't have all the right gear.  I don't have a GPS.  I don't know a lot of you all, yet.  So, I'm mostly going at this alone.

 

So, while I was riding along on my #2 "1/2 day" ride the idea of creating a ride report that would assist newbies such as myself to at least attain 10 challenge sites hit me.  So, I decided that this would be my ride report challenge site.

Please correct me where I am wrong and if you think it is useful send your noob friends over to the report so they can at least get a bronze level status this year!

On 6/25 I posted a ride for a "Easy Overnighter" to #26, Homestead / #27, Cornucopia / #30, Mineral City / #31, Sheep Rock Overlook / & #32, Helena.  Thanks, IdahoSam for joining me on the first day even though it was a little soggy and the roads were  gooey for a spell. I had a fun time riding with Sam and hope we can do another ride before summer ends.

My son and I completed a 1,300 mile trip that included the historic Transcontinental Railroad Grade in Utah and the Pony Express trail in Utah and part of Nevada.  The picture is of my son, Marlowe, at Camp Floyd near the start of the Utah section of the Pony Express Trail.  The ride included maginificent scenery, wildlife, and challenges.  Sorry, no bandana in this one.

South Mountain lookout is on the map and GPX file but I don't see it on the list so here it is.

This is the ride I posted.  The posted picture is just before crossing the Swan Falls Dam enroute to Ruby City.  You can walk your bike across the dam.  There is narrow walk way (about 3 feet wide) with 3-4 right angle turns to negotiate.  It would be very tricky to get a big bike around those right angle turns in such a narrow space.

 Nobody signed up, it was short notice and on a weekday so not unexpected. I ended up arriving about 45 minutes late, the wife was shopping and had left me home with the kids.  I tooled around for almost three hours and headed back to the van. Upon arrival I saw a guy getting ready to load up his bike, another TW, lots of mods. I had to talk to him and check out his bike. Wouldn't you know it was an ADV member from Sand Hollow known as The Admiral who had come out to ride with me. He had waited for me in the parking lot for 30 minutes before deciding that I had chickened out. Guess that's what I get for showing up late. We talked for about 45 minutes in the parking lot before parting ways. Nice meeting you Chris !
