A solid 75 for the week despite a travel day. In addition to racing at the snowshoe nationals in Oregon I visited the fourth highest waterfalls in the country, the high point for the city of Portland, and the Willamette stone. I also got to hang out with Rich and Kelly which would be fun even without a race.
