Day 4: Kah-Nee-Tah, OR to Prineville, OR 61 miles - Climb 3,300'
Another beautiful ride with no problems. Reaching the top of one of the climbs several of us got off to take photos and Howard (Our oldest rider at 79 years old) said it sure is great to be on this side of the road. Across the highway was a cemetary. Had a few sweet decents today. The area is mostly irrigated grasslands so the fields are green. The group is starting to get to know one another. We have several guys from Switzerland, one from G.B., a few from Canada, and one from Scotland. We also have riders from 23 different states. Tom and I are the only ones from Washington.
Roadkills: 27 (Several rattlesnakes, deer and UFOs (Unidentified Flattened Objects)
Hurts: Nothing significant
