Gorge Ride 2008

Organic Squirrel on a No Spray Sign
The Historic Columbia River Highway Gorge Ride was held this past Saturday, June 14, 2008. I signed up for the ride to show my financial support for the Friends in their endeavor to to restore and preserve the existing drivable portions of the historic highway to its 1920s appearance and link drivable portions with pedestrian and bicycle accessible connections to create a continuous route through the Columbia River Gorge. Someday it will be nice to ride from the waterfront trail in The Dalles to Edgefield's in Troutdale without having to ride any freeway and to be able to enjoy the scenery in relative safety.
