In Oregon City we climbed a very large hill. Early on I was distracted because the cross streets seemed to be following the list of the US Presidents in order, but the road turned after Jackson and the presidents went away and then there was nothing left to do but keep climbing. We stopped at the top for this portrait. I should take a moment to say that Matt is actually ill at the time of this photo. He came down with a bug on Wednesday and was being a trouper, biking to Champoeg while still sick.
I should also tell you that we got to go down the other side of that large hill, which was quite fun. Then the road flattened out and we saw various farming operations.
Once we reached Butteville, we rode the bike path to Champoeg.
We checked into our Yurt, took a picture showing we did 37 miles and rode off of two maps today. Matt then collapsed into slumber on the couch for two hours.
While he did that, I ate dinner of big salad with hard boiled eggs while I caught up on the newspaper. Big Salad is my new favorite "camping" meal. I buy a package of salad mix for each person, boil up enough hard boiled eggs (three for me, one for Matt) et voila! Dinner with no dishes excepting the fork.
Being that it was so close to the solstice, it was still incredibly light at 9:00 pm.
Don't worry, it's public, you don't have to be a member of Facebook to see it.
