Back to the coast

The Columbia river is amazing. Quite understandable the first European explorers believed  this to be a bay. The Astoria Megler bridge connects Washington to Oregon, had I taken the direct way along the 101 through Washington, I would have crossed it. The bike lane is very narrow I was told, so six miles of trying to not hit a railing is maybe not so much fun. And it is impressive to look at even from far.
At Stevenson state park you get this river on one side and the pacific ocean to the other.
