Quick Update

Just a quick update for now... I made it to Portland on Tuesday after battling a fierce headwind through the Columbia Gorge - not fun! This is my second day of driving in Washington and I'm seeing some great stuff so far. My planned route will take me around the Olympic Peninsula to the Northern Cascades, then I'll wind my way back south to Oregon staying in the mountains as much as possible. I really want to see some of inland Oregon, so I might change the route a little to fit that in - even by car, there's never enough time to see everything!! I'm pretty psyched to see the Oregon coast and I can't wait to get back on my bike and see it at "touring speed". That's all for now!
