Typical wet weather (sigh, Seattle) in the west before crossing the mountains.

Heading up over the pass on FS25 south, just east of Mount St. Helens.

Just over the pass now. Roads drying out, sun breaking through.

Steam off the wet road.

The intersection at Tygh Valley, about 25 miles south of The Dalles, OR. This is the turn-off east to a a road loaded with twisties, on the way to Grass Valley.

Taking a break at White River Falls state park. Very nice water falls and rapids here, with some kind of white mineral deposits all over the rocks.

Winding up out of the river valley to the east.

Serious winding. Great visiblity, pavement, etc. No traffic.

Gas stop in Shaniko

Rte 218 between Shaniko and Antelope is legendary for it's curves, and starts out with some gentle, undulating hills and curves.

218 then descends down towards Antelope with these crazy horseshoe bends.

You can scrape pegs here without trying.
