Southern States Tour – Day 65 (Final Day)

Day 65 Route

Sunny and warm with light winds, gusty at times. Temperatures ranged from mid 60’s to mid 80’s.

Day’s distance: 317 miles
Total trip distance: 12,566 miles

My GPS had routed me out of Lewiston via I-95 North. I knew from my previous visits to Lewiston that there was an alternative route to the top of the hill north of town called the Old Spiral Highway.
I decided to use the alternative as it is known by the locals as a fun motorcycle road.

It was a fun diversion.

Leaving Idaho shortly after, I was headed home.

I crossed over the Columbia River getting onto I-90.

From there, it was a straight shot home, with one diversion to my favorite Seattle Taco Truck for a burrito 🙂

I will post my reflections about the trip in the next few days. There is one thing I can definitely say now, though – it was an amazing and worthwhile trip.

  2. I can hardly believe that I’ve read 65 days of your blog. It was entertaining to see the map and get a bigger sense of where you were traveling each day.

    Welcome back to Seattle!

  3. Man, that was a cool ride. I would never have even known about this if you and my folks hadn’t met early on.

    1. Thanks, Dennis! I really enjoyed meeting your folks and subsequently riding with your Dad. I’ve enjoyed your comments and your support.
