I stopped in Raymond for some lunch and got chatting to a couple who were also cycle touring south to Portland. Their plan was to head to Astoria across the big bridge and then take a valley road which they showed me on their maps. This was on a reccomendation of a local cyclist from Portland. I liked the look of the valley road and after a bit of research in the Rayond library, decided to take it. I showed them my plan of taking the much smaller bridge and ferry.
