Why Not Bike There!
 Olympic National Park, Washington; Vancouver Island, Sunshine Coast and Vancouver, B.C.

USA, Canada, Oregon, Washington, B.C., Portland, Olympia, Victoria, Tofino, Sunshine Coast, Vancouver!

I left June 30 from Portland, Oregon, on a 22-day bicycle tour through Western Washington and British Columbia. You can view my pictures on Facebook without a Facebook account.

Highlights of my bicycle journey included: Puget Sound, Victoria, East Coast of Vancouver Island, including kayaking in Tofino, Powell River and south on the Sunshine Coast Hwy. The journey culminated in Vancouver, BC, with a few fun-filled days at the International Folk Festival at Jericho Beach before taking AMTRAK with bike back to Portland.

I had a wonderful time, with great experiences, hotter than expected normal which caused me to leave very early each day to beat the heat but I had a blast.
