Another "mental health" ride from Portland, OR to the Southwest and ....Beyond

Here we go again. Last summer my buddy John and I rode from PDX to Nova Scotia. We had a great ride, so John started bugging me to do another extended ride this summer. We leave tomorrow morning and will be heading toward the Southwest (Northern New Mexico, Arizona, Southern Colorado, Utah).....and then ?

Like last year (ride report) we will make it up as we go...... Adventure Style.

Still getting packed up.... so will have to post some other pre-ride stuff after we get on the road

Got all packed up, went early to spend time with my wife Chris.




Smooching her and telling her I am going on a ride


Met John sitting with the guys having coffee!


Murray even had his Buick running to make it to coffee!


Jim giving us a Harley send off. Loud pipes and all!

Headed up the Clackamas River road, with a little breakfast at the Harmony Cafe in Estacada




Views of Mt hood from Hwy 42 near Timothy Lake





Mt Hood at it's finest.


In Moro.... Crazy stuff peopel have in there yards





lots of open road and brisk riding :)

Hwy 46/42 then to Tygh Valley, Grass Valley,

At condon, we stopped to see the Windmill blades. These are not the biggest ones.








Serious power cords.....



John checking out the drying operation....


Morrell Mushrooms picked from the hills....The guy drying them said "they are Gold"!!



John repacking a few things during a stop.




Hwy 52 to Granite....



and into Sumpter.... Mined for Gold at one point. Big dredger that dug up the valley






Great twisty roads with no one on them!!
