We left Elma this morning and it was overcast, 51 degrees, but not raining! Eagles are the mascot for the Elma High School and Eagles Landing was the name of the new shopping plaza across from our hotel, so we believe that the photo below is an eagle’s nest – not sure who placed the platform on top of the pole.
We crossed the Chehallis River a few miles outside of Elma and had NO hills to climb today, amazing.
About half way through the route, we notice a herd of goats run away from us in their fenced in yard as we approached. Once our bikes were even with them, they all turned around and paraded out as if in a circus, jumped on the platform and began to perform for a good 10 minutes of entertainment and a nice break! No popcorn though.
We have stopped for the day in Centralia, Washington – still three more days to Astoria, Oregon.
