Passing the charred foundation of Jack's Store, we carved south onto State Route 503 toward Amboy, where a parachute was recently uncovered that is thought to have been used by Cooper after his successful hijacking. Route 503 runs east and then south before we turned west onto State Route 500. Riding south onto Interstate 205 and east onto State Route 14, we entered Camas. Named for the edible flowers that grew here long before subdivisions were the norm, today Camas smells more like a paper mill than an aromatic flower. Entering the Columbia Gorge Scenic Area, 35-45-mph turns ensure riders reach their corner quota, although the State Police patrol the area to fill their quotas, too. Riders can continue east for 27 miles back to the Bridge of the Gods, but for those still seeking corners, head north onto Washougal River Road in Washougal. Snow banks can be found near Old Man Pass in mid-July. Luckily for us, our route is the only road plowed in the wilderness year-round.
