We made a stop here at The Tiger Historical Center.  It’s Located 85 miles NE of Spokane, WA at the intersection of Hwy20 and SR31.  It was built in 1913.  From 1986-1996 it was a museum.  It is all that remains of the town of Tiger.  The town and area once boasted a population of 2,000.  I found some information from this link on the web.  Lots of nick nacks and goodies to be found here as well as a freezer in the back of the store that was full of Ice Cream Bars.  So that’s what we went for!


Wild Game on the Menu! and a 180′ Tall Bridge

Posted in Bridge, Bridges, Motorcycles, Scenic View, Washington, Water on October 1, 2017 by DRF


We stopped here at the “Buffalo Run Restaurant” here in Marblemount, WA.  Along State Route 20.


They had quite selection here on the menu!  I wasn’t feeling very adventurous, so I just got the Angus Burger.  I was told the Alligator Burger was White Meat.


Deception Pass Bridge along State Route 20.  Construction started in 1934 and ended in 1935.  It sure has been here a long time.  Located in North Whidbey, Oak Harbor, WA 98227.  The bridge is 1487 feet long and only 24 feet wide.  Just enough for two vehicles to pass.



A view from the bridge.  It’s a 180 feet to the bottom.


Another view from the bridge. It was quite a nice view.

Getting ready to board a ferry boat in Mukileto, WA.


All loaded up with a few other motorcycles.


The ride across Puget Sound didn’t take very long.


I’m enjoying the ride on a nice and cool sunny day.


Arriving in Clinton, WA.


Front row seat on the front of the ferry.  We’ll be heading East now through Washington.

Just putting a face to this motorcycle blog!

I usually ride alone on my motorcycle trips, so I don’t have many photos of myself.  Here’s one from my last ride out in Southern California.  I was on a ride along the Pacific Coast Highway.  This photo was taken in a cafe in Morro Bay, CA.

Time to Relax in Eastern Washington

c4Fotor0103110065I arrived in Eastern Washington at my brothers cabin.  I started in Phoenix, AZ and finally made it.  Now it’s time for a little fishing and relaxation.

We caught a few fish, kokanee (a landlocked version of the sockeye salmon),  trout and perch.  We let them all go since we brought plenty of food with us.

I helped my brother build a shed for his quad and enjoyed the fresh mountain air.  It sure isn’t like this in Phoenix.  This is my 2nd year making this trip, and I throughly enjoy it.

It’s hard to see, but in the last 2 photos there’s a couple dear crossing the river.  The photos were taken from inside the cabin through the window.
