Back in Oregon we tried to visit the Oregon caves. The road up there was great training for me. All those curves…I finally picked up a little technique and managed to have a little fun on a few of them. There would be a two-hour wait for the tour, and we wanted to get to Diamond lake that day, so back down the mountain we went. We ate lunch at Michele's family restaurant in Cave Junction. Ron's bike had a fouled plug so before continuing on he picked up a new one and changed it out. This was the hottest day so far, but only really uncomfortable when riding through Grant’s Pass. Scenery was ho-hum after the redwoods.
We found our way over to Hwy 234 then 62 towards Diamond Lake. I love this area. I think maybe sport bike riders must love it too. We saw two different riders pulled over in two separate occasions along this stretch. One poor guy’s posture and sad little wave as he was getting wrote up said it all. We stopped for a short hike to the natural bridge on the Rogue River.

This is closer to how it really looked.
