Great fun - who needs caffeine?
Great report and photos!

I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who thinks the Hood River bridge is a little sketchy when crossing in the wind...

My wife and I made the ride from the Stonehenge memorial to Hood River over the Memorial Day weekend and we really enjoyed WA14 instead of the mad dash on I-84.
There is nothing quite like riding in the Gorge, thanks for sharing your trip!
