Day 6 Hood River OR to Mary Hill State

9 June Mt Hood Oregon  to Mary Hill State Park Washington - 73 km - shorter ride today keeping to Interstate 84. More traffic, wide shoulders and no grades greater than 3.5% except for the off ramps where they approach 5%. Heading East in the morning getting full use of my clever wife's modification to my helmet. Well worth the sacrifice of a baseball cap. Hung out in The Dalles drinking Starbucks at 60% the price in Thailand and still rolled into camp by 1330 hrs. WINDY here in the afternoon. Set to extra guy points on the tent and tied my bicycle to a tree to keep everything in place.
