Into the foot of the Cascade Range

We said goodbye to the comfort of the Comfort Inn and rode south to Terrebonne. I wondered which was scarier – riding on highway 97 or the bungee jumping we saw on the bridge over Crooked River gorge.

We picked up some lunch food at the store and headed down to Smith Rock to see the sights. What a sight it is!

The back roads finally got us to the tourist town of Sisters, famous for it’s quilts among other things.

I rode a few extra miles to visit my Uncle Chuck and my cousin Mark who I haven’t seen in about 30 years. It was great catching up and reminiscing a bit.

We camped at Creekside municipal park after a 50 mile day. Tomorrow should be easier…unless it rains…and it probably will. Wish us luck.
