Steve Jones went on a gravel bike ride Saturday in rural Wasco County. Started from the Dalles and headed south. I never know there were so many views of Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams south of The Dalles. We could see one or the other for about half our ride. There is an awesome descent on Skyline Road back to the Dalles overlooking a deep valley and the Columbia River. The cherry trees are just about to bloom in the orchards south of the Dalles. Taking a drive up Pleasant Ridge Road and connecting to Skyline Road for the return would be a very scenic drive.
