Back from the Northwest Loop

It's been only 10 days, but it seems so long ago that my week with the Northwest Loop bike tour ended.

They told me I missed some incredible scenery by only being able to ride the last week. I saw the ocean, but they saw rivers: The Columbia, the Snake, the Salmon and the Willamette. They saw mountains: the Coastal Range and the Cascades. And they saw the high desert. Who knew the terrain of Oregon could be so varied?

The women who did the entire 4-week tour raved about it and said we should keep the trip on our schedule. Look for it again in 2013.

Pam takes in the view.

Hille, Nancy and Ramsey first met on our 2007 Southern Tier tour.

Some of the beautiful scenery.
