This pretty much sums up how awesome Portland really is. Minneapolis is great, but this is a whole different level.

I made it to the Pacific!

The Seattle Public Library. If you're ever in Seattle, it's well worth checking out.

Looking out at Seattle from inside the Library.

Kate relaxing outside the Library.

It took a lock, some rope, and a sturdy rail to keep the Orca from succeeding in its attempt to return to the sea as we took the ferry to Bainbridge Island.

There is something awesome about riding your bike off a ferry before all the cars are allowed to leave.

Back to Seattle...

Kate sets off for Skagway, with 4 days camping on the deck a ferry and watching whales. Sounds like a fun excursion.

Descending Lolo Pass.

Along with a monsterous raccoon, I also decimated the western Montana insect population with the front of my car.
