This isn't particularly scenic, but definitely an enjoyable ride.

No wonder it looked so familiar - I've been on that road for work.

Yes, river otters. I've seen them on the Samammish River before but never on Lake Washington until then. This is a picture of them on the beach a few minutes before they swam over to us:

I've seen river otters at Big Soos Creek several times.

They are always fun to watch. If you look at them and remain quiet, chances are they will come over to check you out!

Swinging bridge in Riverside State park in Spokane.

poprad 12-06-08 11:07 AM

Mt Hood, Crater Lake, and Multnomah Falls

1bluetrek 12-06-08 11:30 AM

Nice stuff! Ya gotta love the PNW! I'll have to find some pics of the Columbia Basin for some contrast to the mountian side.

lbear 12-06-08 11:52 AM

Lets not leave out the Oregon coast.

I agree, the dry side deserves some love. These are from eastern OR.:

And a little wildlife:

Shifty 12-09-08 06:55 PM

Near downtown Eugene

Central Oregon Coast, yes, that road is nice for cycling!!!

Old McKinzie Pass, it's open to bikes only for a few weeks each spring.

poprad 12-09-08 09:41 PM

D'oh! You're killing me with that McKenzie Pass photo! I was away for work that weekend and didn't get to hit it this that had to be a neat ride with all the snow. I did it a couple of times the year before, but the snow was nowhere near as deep. I don't even want to know how you got up there on that drift to get that cool shot.

City_Smasher 12-09-08 09:51 PM

cougar mtn, yesterday:

Which way were you going? That looks like hell, to climb.

FlowerBlossom 12-09-08 11:58 PM

Wow, the McKenzie Pass and Cougar Mtn shots are fabulous!

Riding McKenzie Pass would be so darn cool!
