WEEK 2 RUN-WALK ACROSS AMERICA STARTS TOMORROW
You will continue to follow the Columbia River, crossing into Washington state and heading north. I googled "movies filmed in Oregon", thinking I could better picture this part of the nation if I had seen a movie that featured it's best scenery. There was a long list on Wikipedia, including "Goonies" in an Astoria beach area and "Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey" in the Columbia River Gorge. There were many, many more. The "Twilight" series, more recently in theaters and well known, was filmed in Portland and other OR locations.
The area of Washington that the route will be taking you through this week is part of the Columbia River wine country. The scenery in this westernmost part of the route is spectacular from the images I've viewed online. Having never visited, I hope to learn a bit about this part of America as I "run the plan". This might be a great opportunity/excuse to sample some of the regional wine!

BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
