The last photos from the Velo rally

A random assortment of pics from the week in OR.  Some wine, some bikes, some old workshops and a really big river.

 

Neil and Debbie made a few cases of this wine, and donated it to the diners during the Welcome Dinner to start the rally and the AGM at the end of the rally.

The mighty Columbia River.  This is a narrow section, about 1/2 of a mile wide.  It is THREE MILES wide just upstream from here in Umatilla, and has an average width of a mile through the Gorge.  It is tough to see the scale of the place, but that diagonal line on this side of the river is a train, and there is a bridge in the distance for car and truck traffic.
