Here is the ride I took today and some pictures. There is a link to the whole album at the bottom of the post. It was a great ride and awesome to be in the sunshine under blue skies riding deserted roads and just racking up miles. People in general and cyclists in particular were friendlier that in PDX and I had some great little visits. One guy caught me on a hill and we rode together 5 or 6 miles. Turned out he was this guy Whose blog posts I have been following. I think an Elephant will be my next bike. Bill was riding his and I liked it. Sorry I didn't get a picture. A few pictures below the map:
