Winter Sunshine

Spring has arrived in the Pacific Northwest and for the next couple of months will be chasing the weather. Syncline is situated across the Columbia River from Oregon and has a very unusual weather pattern. Often if it's raining in Portland there is a good chance it will be dry and sunny in at Syncline. 

Mount Hood, called Wy’east by the Multnomah tribe, is a potentially active stratovolcano in the Cascade Volcanic Arc of northern Oregon. It was formed by a subduction zone on the Pacific coast and rests in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. It is located about 50 miles (80 km) east-southeast of Portland, on the border between Clackamas and Hood River counties. In addition to being Oregon’s highest mountain, it is one of the loftiest mountains in the nation based on its prominence.

Living in Portland means your constantly looking at your Weather App. My favorite app is AccuWeather, what do you use?

Hidden Valley is full of surprises.  It's always fun to session a new spot and clean some different lines. 

While Bryce fixed a flat I took the downtime to find some new lines. I love jumping and my new 2017 Santa Cruz 5010 CC loves to catch air. You can read about my new rig here.
