That’s quite an inversion we have going on in the Gorge this morning, with dismal air quality in the inverted layer. Air quality should improve this afternoon as overall air flow turns onshore, mixing the layers. Best chance of rain in the next few days, in case you were wondering, is Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.

We’ll see west wind this afternoon in the 5-10 range. Not very exciting, I know, and that’s all we’ll see for the next few days.

The wind isn’t there, but the mountain biking is perfect. There’s added incentive to ride your bike today: I hid another of those Henni’s gift certificates in Post Canyon, somewhere above Family Man. Look for the red bad with the monkey logo, and if you’re the lucky finder, you’ll have dinner for two at Henni’s in White Salmon. Now that’s a good reason to go ride perfect dirt, right?

Cheap Gear. Free Membership

Coming up this weekend: Saturday is the HRVHS gear swap. Saturday is also Post Canyon Shuttle day, where for $35 you get lunch and all-day shuttles in Post. Sign up ahead of time, or it’s $40 if you sign up at the event. Money raised goes to the trailbuilders’ fund. Sunday is the Columbia Gorge Marathon. Oh, and I almost forgot: there’s touch rugby at the Hood River Marina at 6pm on Friday. Or so they say.

Have an awesome day today!
