Well Dave ...... you know how I do like a good view from the top, when it involves a little bit of sweat.....

















.... but no, I didn't climb any tree, this time out.

Cool Foodman, that had to be something to see for sure. Looks like a nice soft quilt to lay out on . Was that over the water as far out as you could see?? And do you have any idea how far below it, the actual water was??

Here's US 101, in OR, a bit south of Astoria ......







coming into Tillamook ....







and what visit would be complete without a stop there, to pick up some cheese. .....







then back out, heading south on OR.US 101 .....












Coming into Coos Bay ......







....where I spend the night at Sunset Bay State Park, which is situated out on Cape Arago ....







and allow myself the luxury of a fire that night.

It is extremely rare that I can have a fire while out backpacking, due to strict rules about open firesin the back country






The next morning, I break camp early and decide to venture out a little further along Cape Arago, to Simpson Reef .....












..... wait a minute. Listen to that NOISE! A closer inspection reveals ......











Time to start rollin again and I start heading back towards my campground and beyond, as I am planning on heading on over to Crater Lake National Park for tonight. I pass by some nice ocean sights at the park,as I leave .....















I soon cross across the coastal mountain range and into the semi-arid interior, heading east,along OR SR 138, heading toward Glide and beyond, tomy destination of Crater Lake NP ....







After passingthrough the entrance Toll Gate to the park's north entrance, you soon traverse an interesting stretch of road, that crosses what is known asthe Pumice Desert. ......







and soon arrive at the lake itself. Rather stunning ....











I make my way south, along the East Rim, to make camp at the small, uncrowded Lost Creek Campground. ....

Yup, cool coastal shots, there Foodman!

The fog makes for not only cool shots, but usually cool/damp riding conditions.

As I was leaving Sunset Bay SP, for Crater Lake, I stopped off at the Burger King for a coffee and use their free WiFi. I then walked over to the Walmart located in the same 'plaza' to 're-supply'and came across this couple fixing their Harley. The fella was wrenching on his bike, saying that some filter he was changing out,didn't like damp and cold weather. His 'wife' () complained on not being used to the cold(they were from Alabama?)and how they had just about froze the day before, riding up through the fog, along the coast. I know I had to stop and put the waterproof liner in my Mesh jacket to keep the chill off. They were heading for home and warmer temps.
