  • Sue Coley is considering a week long tour of the Selkirk Loop, starting and finishing in Newport, Idaho. This is a 280 mile tour and considered moderate to challenging. It would be self contained (carry your own gear) staying in motels, unless there was a volunteer sag to accompany us.  The tentative date for this is Sept. 8th through the 14th.
