TourPros left me at The Dalles, he had to get to Portland to pick up his 650L motor, in a HEATED cage.
The top of the hill at 7 Mile was 27 degrees
I grew up in The Dalles, so I'd driven this road MANY times.
knew it was the route of The Great Southern Railroad, 100 years ago. Very Cool.
The old Petersburg Schoolhouse
All along this GREAT MOTORCYCLING
two lane road, I see for the first time evidence of the Railroad Grade that once was.
A cutout in a hill, that I do remember seeing before, remembered out of curiosity.
Now, it makes sense....
.....there is that ^^^^^ Schoolhouse, and this sculpture to the route of the Oregon Trail.
The plaque on it says "Oregon Trail 1853"
The next train stop was Brookhouse, is this it?
Hard to tell.
Next: Freebridge, the best section of this journey....
