It is more of a cool weather ride because the ride is primarily through desert plains. The promise of this ride is spectacular views. We made our way to the dam via a zig-zag through small towns. Other riders were his Brother-in-law Chuck, Kris and myself. We stayed in standard formation most of the way there. Four riders are a nice manageable group.
In the dark and dreary months of winter, while researching potential adventure destinations, I stumbled upon an article about the dam at Lake Owyhee. Although I knew of Lake Owyhee, and that it was the body of water at the end of my beloved Leslie Gulch, I knew nothing of the unusual dam at the head of the reservoir. This, of course, was an adventure Mom and Dad didn't want to miss out on! The plan was to wait until just before the spring runoff was at its peak--this to ensure that the standing reservoir water was being released to make room for all the incoming water. We wanted to be sure to see that glory hole running strong! So, the instant Mom, Dad and I had a free afternoon together, I was herding them toward the state line for what turned out to be an absolutely beautiful spring adventure!

Owyhee Dam, the tallest in the world when completed in , is significant as a proving ground for engineering techniques used later in construction of Hoover Dam. An fur trapper account says the river was named for three native Hawaiian fur trappers who were killed by Indians while trapping in the area for the Northwest Company.

Перед тем, как попасть в Лис, Учитель приземлился в Диаспарском Порту, который теперь скрыт этими песками. Наверное, Порт почти опустел уже в те времена; думаю, корабль Учителя был одним из последних, достигших Земли.
Какое-то время, прежде, чем удалиться в Шалмирану, Учитель прожил в Диаспаре; тогда дорога, должно быть, еще была открыта.
