Lane County Fair

This weekend I headed down to Eugene to go to the Lane County Fair. The  bike ride was awesome, and the weather couldn't have been better. 


Fun dirt bike performers.



Pig races. Super cute. 
#4 didn't want to run around the track which made for some funny pig chasing.



I love looking at the livestock.




Lot's of displays and exhibits


Of course lots of rides

Beach Day


I took my bike to the beach this weekend. It was absolutely fabulous. Tons of sunshine and fresh air. It's just what I needed. 
I rode up HWY 6 to Tillamook, then up HWY 101 to Wheeler. 



This place was a lot of fun as well. 


I love old vintage shoes, and Wheeler Station Antiques is awesome. I could have spent all day there looking through stuff. 










Finally I settled on Manhattan Beach. It's quiet, not very crowded, and the bathrooms are very clean!

Detroit Lake on my Bike

This was an awesome day! It was absolutely beautiful. It took about 2 - 3 hours to get to Detroit Lake from Portland, but  the drive was amazing. 
There were tons of butterflies everywhere, and the weather couldn't have been better. 
I do have to say that although the butterflies were beautiful, I had smashed butterflies all over me once I got home, and my bike was covered with them.

Bye Montana

I had a great time in Montana, but I was definitely looking forward to the ride back. I took 90, to 82, to 84. The wind turbines were really amazing!



The speed limit through this area is 70 but of course everyone is driving 90. I set my cruise control for 80. Wahoo!


Columbia River



Not sure what these are, but they are cute. I saw these along the Rattlesnake River close to Missoula. I think they are prairie dogs



Kayaking the Willametta

I started out at Oak's Park, then I went around Ross Island. It took about four hours. I was exhausted when I got back to Oak's Park...
