Today started with more freeway riding, fast, flat & noisy. Navigator Sherri devised a creative alternate solution. It involved isolated backcountry roads, miles of gravel, a nature refuge with over grown abandoned roads as trails, a short dirt trail, then more gravel roads that led to Hwy 730 into Umatilla. Fairly flat ground & quite the adventure on a tandem! We did not see a car or even another person for many miles.
Some serious gravel
