Here in Vancouver WA (just next to Portland) it is big news when the Weather
Service expects a big snow storm to come through the area. We don't have
snow on the ground often enough, and for long enough, for the local road crews
to budget adequately for the rare large snow storm.
When I know a big storm is on its way I like to make certain we have a week's
worth of supplies on and be ready to stay real close to home for a few days.
This time around I felt we we ready BUT, saw no need to start the
"hunkered-down" phase just yet -- if we did I know the onset of the dreaded
Cabin Fever would happen sooner! So, even though there was a slight
drizzle outside (and most home buyers were getting ready for the storm) I felt I
better get a bike ride in.
Thankfully the signed bicyle routes in Vancouver and parts of Clark County
have improved greatly over the years. When I lived in Everett many years
ago while working for GTE, Everett and Snohomish County had been very
progressive with Bicycle lane and separate path deployments, and was at that
time many years ahead of Southwest Washington in this regard. I think
we've caught up quite a bit now.
The Destination this time was the Renaissance Trail on the Columbia River
Waterfront. Okay, so this trail is several miles long, and it takes me
several miles just to get there -- this turned out to be a two hour ride!
Some of the sights included:
First Stop at the Western part of the Trail we find: The Angry I-5 Bridge
over the Columbia River -- could it be upset that its days are numbered?
Another mile up the trail and the turning point for my ride is the tip of the
break-water at Tidewater Cove. This can be a great place to see Mt. Hood
or watch the planes landing at PDX across the
Columbia River. Today, it was too blustery to linger...
Well, I had better pedal back home and get back to work. Hope you
enjoyed this winter ride! /p>
