It was a cold, crappy, socked in day here in the City. Not so bad east of Hood
River. Got here at about 10:30. By Noon it was half way nice. Blue skies and not
very cold. Saw quite a few eagles this year. Definitely a nice way to spend New
Years day. Would have been a good ride except that the first (and last) 60 miles
would not have been too pleasant.

This is the closest I've ever been to an eagle in the wild. About 20' away.

My favorite little bridge crossing the mouth of the Klickitat River in
Lyle, Washington.
