The night sky was clear, and this 30 second exposure using Lynn's tripod that he kindly left us, turned out to be a good predictor of good weather (no rain on me while riding) the next day. The dipper in the non-pouring position correlates with seasons of less rain.
Here is the ride map for this day: http://www.endomondo.com/workouts/kDZ5HJtUzio
On the way down to Oregon, I took this photo of me on the Lewis and Clark Trail.
I was unsure about crossing the Astoria-Metzer bridge, but there was work in progress and the workers were helpful in expaining it so I crossed all 4.1 miles of this bridge that ends with this virtual mountain of a bridge on the Astoria, Oregon side.
I Finally arrive at Fort Stevens State Park.
