    I wish we were going to have that kind of scenery on the week long ride in September. I'm having second thoughts about the 7+ hour bus ride from Portland to John Day, the area we are riding in plus the really small towns where we will be staying.

    Since Utah (my favorite place) has been mentioned, I thought I would post some old photos to whet your appetite... LAGBRAU - rode 7 days... in all that time think I saw 10 cars total. Utah is miles and miles and miles of beautiful wild countryside and no crowds... tailor made for cycling!

    Very neat -- great roads, amazing scenery, and almost no cars.

    I looked at a map. You will likely ride exactly where this photo was shot, and to the building in it.
    I think you are going to love love love your ride. I rode a big Oregon loop with Adventure Cycling a few years ago that I think covered a lot of your route. It was wonderful.
    Have fun!

    Nice! That is a great pix. I've never seen the Gorge ... gotta do that soon.

    I did CO II, III, IX and X .... and I had a great time, every time!

    I've actually been through a lot of that territory on the HooDoo 500. Pity so much of it was in the dark!

    In honor of this thread I took my camera along on today's great ride. I usually figure all the scenery will be the same, but I got some new angles on things today.

    And here's the video of the day.

    On my standard weekly ride, at the top of a big hill, I always stop to pet this dog:

    One of my favourite places on earth and so very nice that it is a short trip from our place in Portland... the old highway is a marvelous place to travel.

    Here are some stairs on the Columbia River trail. Note the channels for the bike wheels:

    We did that on an Adventure Cycling Oregon ride. I saw the grade percentage on a map and was wondering ???? HUH???
    Then saw it was stairs. I just carried my bike, but I imaging a loaded touring bike rider would be really happy about the bike groove.

    Do you mean you actually got a tick from petting someone else's dog?

    An outdoor one, yes. The fat bloated ones fell out of the fur straight to the ground, but two or three ranging from tiny to small, would be on my pants where the dog would lean against me for his petting. Of course the dog had a flea/tick collar, which tells you how much those are worth using...

    Thanks for that advice, David. I've thought about it some more, and decided that you are right: it is a small but significant risk. I think that dog will have to be happy with petting from his owner.
