Today was a shorter day then the last two (58 miles and 2,600 feet of climbing). The conditions were typical for the Oregon coast ... pretty raw and foggy. My bright yellow Trek Across Maine jacket helped me remain warm and visible throughout the day. How do you get over 20 cyclists to stop just two miles into their ride ... a photo op of course. The lure of "Face Rock" was too much to pass up. I think you can make out the face in the shot below. I definitely like the first picture of the group more.

The next five miles into Port Orford were reminiscent of the summer of 2010. The Geldings (minus Dave Sullivan) rode together in search of Myrtlewood? We stopped at the "Wooden Nickel" just before the SAG at the Battle Rock Historic Wayside. I came away with a nice letter opener.
