Stub Stewart State Park

We grabbed the Airstream and came out to Stub Stewart State Park yesterday afternoon to meet up with some friends. After stopping at Trader Joe’s, Camping World, and suffering the world’s longest wait for propane at the nearby Pilot (they’re not usually that bad), we were on our way and had camp set up by about 6:30pm.

This morning we got up and decided to ride into Vernonia for some breakfast. It’s about 11.5 miles from here along the Banks-Vernonia Trail…a gorgeous ride!

We locked up the bikes and had breakfast at the Black Iron Grill on Bridge Street. Kinda dark inside, but our double cappuccinos were great and so was our breakfast! Also: every single song ever remembered from my childhood…ALL of those songs played during breakfast. Horse with No Name, Hotel California, Wildfire, Band on the Run, Go Your Own Way…well, you get the idea. It was kinda great. Also, this.

Sunny ride back to Stub Stewart after breakfast:

Back at camp now working for the rest of the day after a 23 mile bike ride! Here’s the map with elevation, if you’re curious:
