Stop two on the long gravel road skirting the south end of the Owyhees. Pleasant ride while contemplating how carniverous the plentiful Mormon crickets are.

They need to pave those twisties to the south of the campground. Seems like a waste of some good switchbacks. There was a prescribed burn in progress down by Juniper Mtn. At least that’s what the big orange sign said. Seen up close and also from about 8 miles away (photo), it sure looked like it was more than an Rx burn.

Beautiful ride on the Owhyee Uplands Backcountry Byway. Overcast and the landscape was green and lush. Day one of an overnighter with BB on our Cabin and Cemetery Tour.

Stop 4 on our overnighter out in the Owyhee/Jordan Valley/Silver City area. Hit rain on the way in on Campground is still green and the creek was running full. Road still in great condition from Grandview.

Several crickets, but only one camper. Looks like an interesting spot.
