Trans-Oregon Tour: Monday May 31 (in the morning, though)

That's right Vermont, Oregon's got covered bridges toooooo

Cascade panorama

The climb on US 20 to Santiam Pass

Crossing the PCT

One summit down, many more to go...

Crusted over snow at the summit

The scene of the burn

Entering Ponderosa Pine territory

Of course we stopped!
Day 3 of the tour is about to begin! The last two days Kiran,Sharad,and I biked from Eugene to Redmond, OR,where I am now. Yesterday was the epic climb over Santiam Pass, 4800 feet high! The climb was a workout, about 25 miles of going up and up. But the bomb down was exciting! Now I'm on "the dry side" of Oregon, though rain is in the forecast for the next several days.

One mountain pass down, about 6 more to go!

Today will be an easier day, as we are only going to Ochoco Lake past Prineville.
