Thanks for the awesome crab dinner Tim! Nothing better after a long ride in the dark/cold and climbing up the long bridge into Astoria.
Enjoying the view despite the cold
Us with the awesome staff at Astoria Riverwalk Inn. They put us up in some great rooms right on the water, free of charge
The original map from The Goonies! Awesome. Apparently, Astoria is known as the "Hollywood of Oregon." The Goonies, Kindergarten Cop, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were all filmed there.
Oatmeal before the day's ride
The bridge that wasn't very fun to cross in bike shoes when it was raining.
Great views though!
Step by step, and very slow crossing this behemoth of a bridge
Rex, never phased
Abandon ship! Simon, he was called
Beautiful lakeside rides all around
ELK! They were huge
Great scenery, but not a very good trail for our skinny bike tires. One flat on this particular route
Absolutely SOAKED. Rain can't get us down
Forest ferns everywhere. So much green!
Adam venturing into the foggy forest
Stopping for a pic. Enjoying the nice weather today
We've seen a few random Christmas decorations still up in different towns
For every hill, there's a downhill
Logging is a huge industry in the NW
Nice little sunset towards the end of our ride.
We saw a herd of elk too just before this, they ran off scared though before we could get a photo
Fixing a night flat. We're trying hard to get up earlier so that we arrive earlier. Night riding isn't very fun when you've been going all day
This guy and his friends were waiting for us in Astoria thanks to Tim. YUM
