525 Trip Miles
West to Astoria! Well not quite since I'm still 19 miles short. The ride across the Lewis and Clark Bridge was still a pretty good climb, and there was a lot of traffic, but there was a good sholder all the way. There were two climbs today, Rainier Pass and Clatsop Crest for a total of 1,420 feet.
Gnat Creek Campground was the last one before Astoria so I figured I'd stop here. There are only three sites, and they were all taken. However, one couple invited me to share their site and I accepted. I didn't think to get any groceries at Westport, so supper consited of my emergency rations, Ramon noodles with tuna fish and fine aged water (vintage earlier that afternoon)!
Tomorrow I will be in Astoria. I may spend the night there so I can get some laundry done.
