Trans-Oregon Tour: The Start!

Salem Southern Pacific Station

On the train
I'm typing this from a fancy electronic device (fancy!)from a "brewpub"in downtown Eugene. Took the Cascades train from Portland at 6:15 pm. Bid my sweet baby April adieu,because I won't be back until Pedalpalooza!

On saturday I depart by bike with Kiran and his friend for a bicycle excursion into Eastern Oregon! We'll follow the fabled TransAm bike route over the Cascades via Santiam Pass. Then eastward through Redmond and Prineville onto US26 and into Painted Hills country. More mountain passes and into Baker City.

I'll press onward through the Wallowas and Blue Mountains, then Eastern Washington wheat territory where I'll catch a train in Pasco.

Should be fun!

I'll post when I can.
