Detours - Peoria via Albany

Took the quick route to Albany on Hwy. 20. It has a wide shoulder and I could go pretty fast. Pulled down to the river just before the bridge in Albany.

I usually take Bryant road through a nice park along the river and then on out to Riverside. Today however the road was under water.

New Year's Day Ride to Buena Vista

Started out around noon as the fog had lifted and the day was looking promising. My
goal was to ride to Buena Vista, home to an old ferry crossing I wanted to see. I headed north on Independence Highway to Springhill Road and then north on Buena Vista Road. There were several parks with access to the Lukiamute River, which was running big and muddy.
