Crazy long day (73 miles) but we finished our first state (Washington) and entered a new one (Oregon). Morning found us battling a wretched westwardly wind coming up the Columbia River as we followed it to the coast. It was seriously a 30 mph headwind for 30 miles, with barely a 6 mph pace on flat highway. Super exhausted, we took a ferry over the Columbia River and entered Oregon. Now in Astoria, we opted for the comfort of a bed, washer/drier, and shower courtesy of AirBnB. Back on the coast from inland, I feel pumped to see the ocean again. But honestly, I miss the crazy views of AZ and even that summer heat rolling in.
