Still exhausted from yesterdays long and hot ride, we started with a steep climb. At least we had a wonderful outlook over the Columbia River. Afterwards we hit the long expected headwind for around 50 km near Hood River, which is apparently well known by surfers. We enjoyed having lunch and watching the surfers on the river. The positive side of the wind was a mild temperature of 30 C compared to yesterday. However, again a very long day riding! In general we are now in a more and more touristic area with really good food, but only expensive motels available!
