    First Spring... June 4th 2011

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    Having gotten my Dakar ready to ride all I needed was a break in the weather. There have been a few rides around home, most involving rain, what I wanted was some sun... This weekend was forecast for just that. Lyn had a few days of vacation and I wouldn't be missed at work. It looked like the best and warmest would be in the Columbia River Gorge. High eighty's both Friday and Saturday, so nice!

    There are so many places in these canyons to ride, a favorite place for sure. We stayed on the Washington side for most of a day covering from Stevenson and up the hill to Klickitat then east to Bickelton and down to the river at Roosevelt. Exploring the side canyons off the beaten path and roads less traveled. The next day we explored Oregon, from the river to Tygh Valley across Sheers Bridge and up the hill to Grass Valley. Here it was race day at the track, Oregon Raceway Park, this time it was motorcycles. We didn't have a long lens so there aren't any photos but it was fun to watch.

    Friday morning we awoke to beautiful blue skies in The Dalles...

    The black and white photos are great!

    I really like Oregon....except for the time my GSA was stolen a 1/3 of the way into a 3 month adventure (later to be found a block away from where it was stolen).
