First day of a long motorcycle journey: passed through Oso where human activity induced mudslide destroyed homes and claimed many lives. Got puzzled by Larsens felling 1303 old tree and dedicated that to the memory of their ancestors... hmm, kind of weird IMO, it would be much better standing. Then my chain snapped and I did roadside repair. And much of Eastern Washington is burned. Got my rewards passing waterfall with rainbow at its base, meeting mommy moose with kid, and getting coffee from wacky coffee shop.
