Barry competed in a 52 and a half mile bicycle road race this weekend near Silverton, Oregon. Clearly, we are related by marriage, not genetics. I dutifully positioned myself next to the starting line to catch a glimpse of him every time he whizzed past for each of the three 17.5 mile loops he completed. While he looped, I explored the area, camera in hand. For the next few days I'll be showing you what I got to know of Silverton, as things 'round my way have been rather slow - slow but good - otherwise.
