On the surface this shy, quiet farmland access road in the south of the
Pende Oreille valley has rather plain features. But taken together, theyíre
somehow attractive. Its skin isnít flawless but it is healthy. Its curves are
neither chiseled nor bodacious yet are tempting none-theless. While its
Scenery wonít get it in the centerfold of Motorcycle Tour & Cruiser, those
vistas in the boundary zone between farmland and hills kind of grow on you.
And because of its modest Character, there isnít lots of traffic competing for
its off-the-beaten-path charms. Which means lascivious speed tax collectors
are absent, attracted to the easier pickups on nearby Hwys 2, 20, and 211.
After you get to know it, the pastoral, country charm of this DH might just
leave you smitten - or at least considering a second date. Beauty, it seems,
is more than skin deep.
