Mark and I have now ridden across the state of Washington east to west and are about to start heading south to Hood River, Oregon. So far we have been lucky with the weather but I think we are about to head into a few days of that inevitable Pacific Northwest rain. Riding into Oregon will mark state number seven for us on our "western US tour."
Yesterday we rode the ferry from Orcas Island to Anacortes after spending two days on the island. Coming from the somewhat arid climate of Utah we are still in awe of the lush green-ness that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. We spent the first week of this month in the northwest mecca--Bellingham, with amazing friends (Beej and Lacy) where we way over-stayed our welcome.
Our Bellingham crew. We love you guys!

Enjoying the Pac Northwest!
Mark gave Claire a coolant change in the parking lot of our hotel. The amount of mechanic-ing that this man has picked up on the fly is amazing to me. I can't count the hundreds of dollars that he has saved us.
After Hood River we will make our way to the coast and head down into California. We are not looking forward to the traffic but are excited for the Redwoods, meeting friends in Yosemite, and some sunshine!
