Wow. Sunshine, views, wind at my back, 70 degrees. Wow. This is a photo of my first view ever of Mt. Hood. I’m not sure but it could be 60 miles distant.

Maybe not my first view of downtown Portland, but close (it was night time when I arrived 6 days ago).

The bike path along the Columbia River was a great respite from the main roads. The highest peak in Oregon, Mt. Hood, is approximately 50 miles away.
