Oregon: North of Newport

After 5 days in Portland doing not much at all I caught the bus back to Seaside on the west coast and hopped back on my bike. I caught a cold in Portland that made cycling very unenjoyable but being the super tough person I am I soldiered on. Spent a few days on the road (by myself as usual) in some sunshine and some rain and then stopped in Newport for a couple of nights.

  1. Kinda lonely but beautiful photos, Greer! Here's the poem I tried to email to you on your birthday:
    High Country Weather by James K. Baxter

    Alone we are born
    And die alone;
    Yet see the red-gold cirrus
    Over snow-mountain shine.

    Upon the upland road
    Ride easy, stranger:
    Surrender to the sky
    Your heart of anger.

    Arohanui from Auntie Annie
