Fond memories

What a nice surprise that John Richards is recalling

his travels in Oregon from more than 10 years ago.

We still feel a bit of chagrin about having taken

John to a couple of trails beside rather steep dropoffs; we had, beforehand, no inkling that heights bothered him.

Just as a small correction, "Losier Loop" refers

to a segment of what is officially known as the

Historic Columbia River Highway, built in the 1910's.

It has been supplanted as a thoroughfare by the

freeway I-84, and the remains of old highway are now

strictly for scenic excursions. The segment

referred to here connects the town of Mosier and

the small settlement of Rowena, traversing the very

scenic Rowena Plateau, and a portion with several

hairpin turns is usually called the "Rowena Loops".
