An unusual “punch hole cloud” formation was seen over Spokane and North Idaho this morning, caused by ice crystals from jet exhaust falling downward through the sky, the National Weather Service said.

“A Road Runs through it”
by Jed Vaughn
You can feel the rumble and hear the roar of a Harley Davidson motorcycle as it rolls through the super friendly little bar called “Cruisers” located at State line, Idaho.
“A road runs through it” is the unusual attribute of this motorcycle bar that literally has a road running in one end ……….and out the other !!!
Situated in the beautiful Spokane Valley where Eastern Washington meets the Idaho panhandle, you can sit back, relax, and check out the motorcycles roll through while enjoying your favorite beverage. Whether you want to play pool, listen to live music, or just shoot the breeze with friends and acquaintances, Cruisers is an awesome little place to do it at.
On the weekend before Sturgis, the worlds largest motorcycle rally in South Dakota, Cruisers holds a “Mini Sturgis” event where locals and folks from all over the Northwest stop in on their way through to the popular National motorcycle gathering.
This one day event at Cruisers has a mini flea market where you’ll find jewelry, leather goods, knives, local art, patch sewing, and a variety of food and beverages. You’ll also find various games including the splash tank or biker ladies at the arm wrestling table !!
Outside in back there’s a stage with a nice lawn to hang out on. If your needing to get some ink done you can do that right here too at Cruisers. Dirty Harry’s tattoo parlor and body piercing shop is right next door and has its own entry from the bar.
You can bring your “cool car” out for “cool car Tuesdays” or ride the bike out for “Thunder Thursdays”. A very friendly little local hangout with a unique twist.
So if your ever riding through Interstate 90 at the Washington -Idaho border…be sure to swing in to “Cruisers” at Stateline, Idaho and take “the road that runs through it“ !!!
Cruisers is located at 6105 West Seltice Way, Stateline, Idaho 83854. They are open daily from 11am to midnight and will stay open later on the weekends or anytime if your party is rolling! You can also call ahead at (208) 773-4706 for details on special upcoming events.
Well the warm days of Mazatlan are in the rear view mirror now and Billings Montana is up next for research on Custer’s Battlefield which I have an assignment with NW Travel magazine to write about.
I’m back in the cold damp and dreary rainy weather in Spokane Valley. It’s not snowing or freezing at least. I’m thankful for that and it feels good to be home with my own bed, the dog, and the family & friends I’ve been missing.
