Another great update. I've really enjoyed your post over the years with your excursions into WA and OR. I've spent a little bit of time in that part of the world on work related jobs in Baker, La Grande and Umatilla. I've flown into both Boise and Portland with days added (PTO) to get a little local feel. Hard to go wrong in that neighborhood. Great country, bikes and photography. I've made it as far west as North Fork of the Salmon River on the way to Glacier on my MG Stelvio. My skill set is strongest in the culinary arena so maybe one day I can pay my dues at that rental. Nice crib!
