Today I rode from Beacon Rock to Vancouver. The ride over Cape Horn was pretty easy. The shoulder was decent most of the time. I think Hwy 14 might be part of the ACA Lewis and Clark Route. The only tricky part, and I have encountered this before, is when there is road construction and instead of a flagger there is a traffic light. The problem is that the traffic light doesn't know there is a bike coming through. What I do to give myself the longest possible time to get through the section before the light changes, is wait for the beginning of the green light. If I get to the light and it is green I will wait and sit through another cycle until the next green light. Then I pedal like mad! So far, so good!
I stopped at my friend, Kim's house, to visit. I had fun taking pictures of her chickens. Then I rode onto my dad's. My brothers came for dinner. Tomorrow I will ride to Kelso. Unfortunately, I can't seem to locate a place where I could camp. Then again, it's not too surprising. Who would want to go camping in Kelso?
Three more nights (counting tonight) and I will be home!
