Sauvie Island family ride

We went out to Sauvie Island yesterday for a family ride. It was scenic - we watched the Mt. Adams wildfire grow - but the roads are narrow with a ton of traffic. It kind of reminded me, and Nikki remarked on the same thing later, of Martha's Vineyard, but without all the houses (and the floating houses just aren't the same thing!).

I'm glad we took it in - we rode by a field that grows potatoes for Tim's Chips, and we went to a beach (that had a lot of trash strewn about - what's up with that?!) - but I don't see us headed in that direction again.
