Back from Stumptown!

Who says you can't take it with you?

Got back in from Portland at 2am. 20 hours on the road in a car is BRUTAL. I'm still recovering (took a nice 6 hour bike excursion today). Anyway, still sorting through the pics, but here are a few I like...

An hour or two on the road is romantic, but 20 is torture. Never again!

An endless snake of cars undulating through the grapevine.

Our furry companions on the trip, Mosely and Suki.

Finally on a bike! Riding the Portland riverfront in the late afternoon is sublime.

I'm definitely moving here!

Costumed denizens playing croquet with bowling balls and sledgehammers...just another day in Portland.

Yes. It is biking heaven and this is its halo.

Vik...Yes. I've been flirting with the idea for the last two years, but this trip really sealed the deal. Hoping to move by next spring....time to start saving my nickels and dimes...
