... was just fine-- very dry and clear, no problems, and by the time I got down a little lower elevation to the area where I am now, there was no snow on the ground, and it was a nice temp, maybe low 60s when I set up camp.
So that's about it for this entry: I've posted some photos and videos below--check out the Soggy Sneakers video for my 1st attempt at a little auditory travelogue. I will post another entry for the week in Bend. Thanks for ...
... at 6am...we didn't leave until about 8 (hit snooze a few too many times), but once we were on our way, everything was gravy until just before Innisvail where we hit a major thunderstorm. Crazy lightning and enough rain to almost cause us to pull over, however we were able to make it through and the rest of the way was bright and sunny!
We had packed 2 coolers of snacks, sandwiches & drinks, so the only plans were to stop for gas when needed. ...
This has, indeed, been a very busy day! After breakfast we went riding with a few others to see the attractions along the Cascade Trail. What we saw was high desert terrain with a number of small lakes (of volcanic origin) and views of the Bachelor and Three Sisters (snow capped mountains). It took us most of the morning to complete the scenic trail.

... at all. The video I took for his folks should be interesting and provide some chuckles.

We got turned around, finally, and ended up on the right highway (62) into CLNP. That’s probably a good ...
... back on the 101 and to the scenic drive called the Avenue of the Giants. Apparently, I am at the stage in my life where I now choose the scenic route over the most direct.

This would be a great motel if only it were managed better. The rooms were very nice for the price, but there was no coffee filter for the coffee maker, the internet didn't work, the satellite TV was spotty, and the receptionist was so-so. On the plus side, the room was clean, the bed comfortable, had a complementary breakfast and a nice pool. It was worth the money but it could be so much better.
