From Seattle, I continued south through Portland and San Francisco. I stayed with a friend in Portland who took me on a couple nice rides around the area.

We went west out to the coast and rode along it for a bit.

We also rode east from Portland along the Columbia River…

I also checked out the Japanese Gardens in Portland. There were loads of other gardens in the area as well, but unfortunately it wasn’t quite the right season for them.

From Portland, I headed south towards San Francisco/Mountain View, but made a stop in the Redwoods along the way

I spent a couple days in Mountain View with my cousin and her family, and as luck would have it, her kids were off school while I was around, so they showed me around San Francisco for a day.

Lombard Street is a famous spot in San Francisco, as it’s the crookedest street in the world. It’s also the only street in the world that’s described by an adjective that isn’t even a word.

Time to continue south…I feel like Denver is right around the corner!
