Gorge



Day five we got to the Seattle area around 4pm. Not the best time to try and navigate through Seattle on I-5. The freeway was packed in all lanes and traffic was at a walking speed. Through some of it we were able to use the commuter lane, and that really helped. It still took more than an hour to get passed downtown Seattle and through that rush hour traffic. We grabbed a hotel about 30 miles south of Seattle.
Day 6 we rode down to Camas, Wa. and met up with our other to buddies for the remainder of the ride. We all then rode down the Wa. side of the Columbia River and ended up at Hermiston, Or. for the night. Weather was getting rather hot. Luckily, I had purchased a half helmet in Prince George and wore it instead of my full face helmet.
