Portland to Astoria to Long Beach, WA

I climbed up the 165 steps to the top of the Astoria, OR Column
This is a view of the parking lot from the top of the Column. That's my Harley way down there!!

This is the restaurant where I enjoyed a cup of Clam Chowder while enjoying the company of two fellow motorcycle riders I met along my journey. One of the fellows attended a neighboring, rival High School of mine in Southern California. He was a few years behind me. Tom and Allan are still up there in the far left window of the protruding restaurant section.
