Stuck around Riggins.
A woman who works as an EMT next door to the library insisted that we stay at her house for the night in her guest room.
Yes please.
They had goats.
Rode to Cambridge the next day.
Camped with a guy that is riding the transam, who has also hiked the AT and canoed from the Yukon territory to the arctic circle.
Stories.
Breakfast with fellow cyclists.
Next day to oregon.
Stopped in halfway, after a 32 mile climb, the hardest of the trip.
Camped outside of the motel in town for five bucks (showers).
Hot (weather).
Booked it the next day to baker city.
More Mexican food (never enough).
Left the next morning in the rain, before stage one of the elkhorn cycling classic started.
Lots of 3000 dollar wheelsets and shaved legs, pinerello princes on bmw’s, terrible sunglasses.
Rode through the national forest to prairie city.
Coin-op showers and double rainbows.
Prairie city to Mitchell.
The gas station in town had a black bear in a cage named henry.
Paid way too much for a marginal breakfast, but the pancakes WERE cooked in ice cream.
Slept in the city park (where we are most at home).
Next day, 72 miles to Redmond.
Windy.
Took santiam pass to mckenzie bridge.
Camped in the national forest.
Big trees.
Beautiful weather.
Love Oregon.
Eugene.
Civilization.
Almost done.
Two days.
