Did 187 miles today, back out towards Nestucca. About 30 miles of dirt. Found snow up on Mt. Hebo at 2800' again.



Also ended up on the beach for a bit.

Chilly but sunny near The Dalles today


Thought it looked like a bowl of water


A unique view of the Celio Rail Road Bridge. Moody Rd is a fun Gravel ride. Watch for Cattle.


Over by Gordon Ridge Road



Great day for exploring whatever side road that came along.
Warning a fresh thick layer of gravel on Gordon Ridge Road. I let 10 lbs air out of the tires but was still like riding on marbles.
Turned around and took a new tack and got to the radio station Peak from the other end of Gordon Ridge Road.
I wonder if I will ever find a helmet that does not let the 30mph side gusts blast in.....drafty. 183 mile fun RT.

Rob,

Next time you want to do this I'd meet up. I like Hebo, snow and the beach. Drop me a PM.

That was a beach located just south of Cape Lookout State Park if I remember correctly. But it looks like that entire beach area is drivable, from what I could see while down on it.

Casual ride to some really scenic places with a bunch of fellow photographers.
Get some photo tips and info a d maybe see some cool new places.
I'm filming in LA now and am crazy booked on shoots till mid June but will be pretty free after that to do some rides.
Anyone interested?
Sounds like fun
