Colin and I woke up before the sun to try and stay ahead of the winds but, that's not so easy here in the Columbia River Gorge. Oh well, at least the scenery is enough to keep you pedaling onward. I haven't had an early start in a while, mostly because the mornings have been so cold; today felt really good though.
We had a few hills to climb but, they only lead to breathtaking views of the river and the highway and all the lovely trees and mountains, it all looked so perfect like a miniature model of some utopian land.
We stopped and talked to a lot of other bikers and even got invited to spend the night on Mac and Cindy's lawn. Life is good on the road and riding with Colin had just been wonderful,
