St. Helens and Mt. Hood ride pics

Some shots from last weekend's ride through St. Helens and down to Mt. Hood National Forest. Tons of fun, just a little chilly in spots.

Sure beats the hell out of the soybean fields and gentle sweepers I get to feast on around here.

Great photos, looks like a wonderful ride.

Re: St. Helens and Mt. Hood ride pics

Thanks guys, it was a killer ride, even with the cold and a little rain. Well worth the effort. All in all, we ended up with about 750 miles for the two and a quarter day run.

Re: St. Helens and Mt. Hood ride pics

Looks like you got some of the same rain we did. Got us in Morton, then again towards the turnoff from FR 25. What time did you run through there?

Bridge of the Gods, eh? Is that the one at Cascade Locks? We ended up going the other way and staying the night in Hood River.

Looks like you guys had as much fun as we did, no matter what the weather was like. True Washington riders!

Wow ... that almost makes me miss Oregon.


Oh wait, the rain part ... no it doesn't.

But seriously though, I do miss how beautiful it is up there. We haven't seen rain here for at least 7/8 months and won't for another 4/5. Everything's brown. bleh. Well it ain't called the golden state for being green I'll tell you that much.

Nice pics guys. I think I'm gonna have to make my way up there soon. Go visit friends.

No matter how beautiful a woman may be, some man somewhere is sick of her sh!t.

Holeshot, the "Bridge of The Gods" shot is spectacular.

Re: St. Helens and Mt. Hood ride pics

All I can tell you is that bridge is absoutely breathtaking to go over. Definitley not for those who are affraid of heights though.

Looks like you guys had a great time, got to love the NW.

Re: St. Helens and Mt. Hood ride pics

My inlaws live near Tacoma. I'd love to be out there w/ a bike I could spend some time on.

Whatever happened to Holeshot?

Both of ya.... All we have around here are mountain roads, endless canyons and coastal expanses that are just to breath taking to ride, and tracks, OMG the tracks. Just ain't right man, not right at all.

Good pic tbeemer. Might worth a trip up that way sometime. Ever join up with those boys that go from Miami to Alaska?

Nope, that's a bit of a haul for me. I limit myself to rides of 3k-5k at a time... in moose free areas!
