Twin Falls to Rifle

Day two found us traveling 559.1 miles through a couple of thunderstorms with a couple of stops for gas and a stop in Fruita for food. Music playing, photos taken, another day of conversation. We are halfway to Champaign/Urbana! Kev is in Colorado for the first time ever, pretty exciting! Tomorrow we go to Kansas… lookout Dorothy!

As Vicki and Sandy finished the marathon (Sandy went along with Vicki the last half of her 13 mile walk), Karen and I wandered along the water from the Golden Gate to the wharf. A long walk, but worth it. Lovely day. Beautiful, gorgeous, and we were there.

Lastly… this is the third photo I chose to donate to the Amani Center fund raising bash this coming Saturday. The Hawthorne Bridge, Portland. All three of these shots ended up looking great framed. Now, again… just hope I make the center some money on Saturday.

I always have to take a few odd shots. This, looking up the support on the Freemont, is one of those. Kind of makes you feel a bit dizzy looking at it.

This is Kristen taking a photo of me taking a photo. Cool just to be up there on the Freemont. What a great day with some terrific friends. You ladies are da bomb!!

Broadway Bridge

After the Burnside we crossed the Broadway Bridge. Really nice. So cool to be able to ride over it. In this photo are Kate and Kristen. Kate, we are still jealous of your bike shorts! Oh, and your gloves by the way.

A quick stop on the Burnside gave us a look over at the Steele Bridge, The Freemont Bridge in the background (the Broadway Bridge is in between these two bridges), the Rose Garden on the right in the photo, and the seawall in the photo on the left.

View From The Marquam

Looking the other way from the top of the Marquam you can see the city, and the first bridge we’d crossed over going East, the Hawthorne. I love Portland. What a gorgeous magnificent city.

The second bridge we crossed during the Bridge Pedal was the Ross Island. Nice view from there toward some of the other bridges we’d be tackling later.

Big Pink

Here she is… the Bancorp Tower, locally and lovingly known as Big Pink, is the second tallest building in Portland. Or at least it was, which could have changed now with all the south waterfront building that’s been going on. However, I don’t believe any of those buildings are as tall as this recognizable beauty.

Evening at Cathedral

So we started off this last weekend with a walk at Cathedral Park with the pups. The weather was nice, and the pups appreciated it. I didn’t bring along my usual camera, so my iphone camera had to do the picture taking. This one is a bit dark, but still not that bad…
