|Forest Park - Leif Erikson Drive|
On Sunday, after Andrea knocked out a good tempo run (accompanied by her personal pacer, me), we did a lot of walking around Cannon Beach and Ecola State Park. These areas were classic Oregon coast - big wide beaches, towering rock monoliths, and it was always chilly!
You would think that a stop at Dairy Queen would have been the highlight of the drive back to Portland on Sunday afternoon, but that is actually debateable. The clouds broke and with the clear skies, we had some amazing views of Mt Hood and Mt St Helens. Seeing those mountains made us think one thing - we need to get back to the PacNW with our skis!
|Women's 10K at PTF - 4 of these gals went under the OT "A" standard of 32:45|
|$1 cones in Seaside!|
|Can't really get far off the ground the day after a 10K! Achilles don't bounce back that quickly!|
|She can fly, though!|
|Our hotel was along this river, 2 blocks from the beach|
|The good stuff!|
|Ecola State Park - Crescent Beach|
|Very cool to see a forest with giant trees right next to the ocean|
