The off and on spring rain stayed “off” today and provided for a great spring bike ride in the Columbia River Gorge. It’s finally starting to feel a little bit like spring, but there are still plenty of rain showers and clouds to go around. When you get a nice day around here, you take advantage of it. It’s a nice time of year for cycling in the Gorge if you read the weather correctly and dodge a few showers.
The pear tree blossoms are blooming in the Hood River valley and this weekend is The Dalles Cherry Festival, so it’s a big spring weekend. There are going to be a lot of people checking out the blossoms, so be careful if you’re driving, or especially if you’re riding a bicycle around the Columbia River Gorge.
We got the kayaks and kayak gear out and will be getting ready for the fishing season’s first trip. The weather and wind are uncertain for the next few days, so we will be getting the gear ready to go for the first available fishing day.
