Centralia to Longview, Washington

Raw log exports from Longview

Wednesday 17 August 2011
Hotel Monticello , Longview Washington
0815 – 1600
82 km

The short ride from Centralia took us into Chehalis for breakfast at Sweet Inspirations. Flat road, sunny morning, hot day to come. Very easy cycling through prosperous farm country.

On 18 May 1980 Mt St Helens blew. Olin and I heard the deep thud in Duncan, where we were visiting just before we got married. The nearby town is Castle Rock, but it’s very small and I looked in every single shop without finding a single Mt St Helens souvenirs.

We cycled to the Hotel Monticello is historic Longview. It’s a pretty city, nicely designed, but very quiet and all closed down by 5, too early for tourist shoppers.
