The only thing about riding a bike from Portland to Phoenix is that in-between there is something called... NEVADA.

Return from the No-Zone

We are back in 4G country after rolling through the gorge, up onto the  Columbia Plateau, and finally into Madras.
Yesterday was a low mile, high calorie day as we tackled the winding climb onto the plateau. Traffic was sparse, presenting many opportunities to listen to the birds while spinning in low gear along hwy 97. At night we found ourselves under a blanket of stars outside of the Grass Valley cemetery. We awoke to an amazing sunrise accompanied by a clear view of Mt Hood and Mt Jefferson.
