Pre-St Patty's Day Gorge Run 3/16

Yeah, roads were a little dirty, but what a day. OC to Estacada to Sandy to Corbett (gas) to Cascade Locks (more gas) to Mosier to Rowena to Mosier to Hood River (and FOOD) to OC. Just over 200 miles and minimal traffic, especially for a Saturday!

Topping off with hi-test in Cascade Locks:

Rowena Loops Overlook:

Thread back on track:

Crummy video still capture but gives a sense of the road and scenery:

Lunch in Hood River was at Horsefeathers/Big Horse Brew Pub- excellent grub!

What a great early season day! Thanks Butch!

I took 3904 out to PIR for a Driver Training Instructor seminar and track walk. We do this every year so all the instructor's are telling the same story to the students and driving the same lines. It was 33 degrees when I left Beavercreek at 7:30 AM. Bright and sunny but COLD! Sure was nice by the afternoon when I drove home though.
