The Voice of America transmitting station in the boonies of Pitt Co NC, named for Edward R Murrow. A huge complex & hard to get a good photo of the many transmission towers.

Here is another one from the archives, taken on Lopez Island, Washington. Uncommon in this part of the country anyways, a farm that uses good old fashoned horse power exclusively:

You were only 2 miles from my place when you took that Kenmore Air Harbor photo. Next time you consider rolling down to my neck o' the woods give me a call and I'll roll out some miles with you

GTK Drillium Dude, I am not usually over there but I had an interview in Redmond and decided to hit one my old ride spots on the way home as I had the bike in the car, if I am over there again I will give you a shout, I am guessing you use the Burke Gillman as your ride to School route....

I've been out that way several times before. There is/was a great little Mom & Pop restaurant, right near the park & ride, that had killer milkshakes. They made them in the big stainless steel glasses, and left those on the table with the regular glass, just like back in the '60s. 😎 Hard to find that, anymore.

This is as close as I've been, SO FAR, to Spirit Mountain (in Nevada). I wasn't really planning to ride in this direction today, it's supposed to be a rest day, so I wasn't geared up for desert riding. Plus I bought a gallon of chocolate milk this morning, a "manager's special" at Safeway, and didn't want to waste it in the sun. 😁😉 That would've left me with only a little water, not nearly enough.
