Cloud challenge, take 3

We’re so lucky up here in Portland.  If we’d been around the whole time and if I were more ambitious, I’ll bet I could have posted a challenge response for every day of the month.  I really feel for the Navigator, led at and their ilk, looking at a blazing blue sky and praying for rain.

But, I’m neither of these things – not all that ambitious, and we frittered away half of the month in Taiwan (not that it didn’t have a cloud or two also, come to think of it).  So, here it is late January and this Ride to Chinook Landing is only the third submission.  Pathetic.

This is just a placeholder for now. I’ll add a real description when I get more time.

    42 miles is your perfect distance and it’s the meaning of life too…interesting. I reckon Ireland is the next good cycling destination for you.

      42 is the meaning of life? I’ve never heard that, and googled it. The can’t believe I’ve never read that book, but I guess I’ll have to now.

      Ireland looks like a definite candidate, alright. I’ll have to check in with the boss to see if she thinks it’s all wet.

    Portland is very atmospheric at this time of year – it has a very different feel to some of your other photos. I wouldn’t want that for more than a month, but it does give a different feel to other times of year. Beautiful. I worked in the kitchen at the mountain campus of Colorado State U. one summer. It was in a beautiful valley at 9,000 feet with more hiking and mtn peaks out the door than you could ever dream. We hosted Roads Scholar ‘camps’ (a chamber orchestra one, a intergenerational one and a couple of peak-bagging/alpine hiking/birdwatching ones). It was still called Elderhostel then, but those folks were always a whole lot of fun and full of life and energy. (But boy, did they get through the grapefruit – we had to order an extra box on the weeks those camps were in session!).
