Well, I took a wrong turn on 26 and wound up detouring a little further east than planned, wouldn't you know when I went to check the map on my phone there was no signal so I winged it and still made it home. Turns out where I was going to cross the Columbia was a toll bridge, didn't check the rates but I burned it up in gas anyway. Here are a couple of pictures
First Stop for gas I pushed a little far... was tempted to start a how low did you go thread.
Foster Dam OR... caught a few fish out of here when I was growing up.
That was going to be my entry into the picture of the week contest but then I ran by this place by accident.
NF 11 (Quartzville Road) should be done mid day or with the sun to your back. the glare was terrible at times... I was so blinded I couldn't see enough to stop for a second or two at a time was just praying that I wouldn't run off the road or hit anything. It really stopped me from seeing into the corners to see how to take them. the road itself was great I just took it at the wrong time of day.
In this picture you can just barely see Mount Jefferson.
And any of you Oregon people who haven't discovered FS 42... go discover it. No pictures but it was fun.
