I'm sending this from the library in Baker, OR. We had a great ride this morning through old west cattle country with the blue mountains on one side and the Eagle mountains on the other. We had a pretty quick trip, as we started before 7am and arrived at noon. We had a few stops along the way and had a very nice conversation with a local rancher who explain the countryside and local commerce. The day before we had a big climb from Pendleton OR to La Grande OR. It was our first experience with climbing via a switch back road. The view was spectactular. It was also our travel on the side of the interstate. We rode along I84 for about 8 miles, not nearly as nice as the open country roads we've been traveling. I can't attach pictures here at the libary, so I'll try and get them attached later.
