Blue lupines color the roadside, as the road becomes Canyon Creek Road and we continued east until reaching Salmon Falls Road where we headed south. Slow 10-25- mph turns wind near a small airport, and after five miles of banked bliss we were back at Route 14 and continued east. Passing the Bonneville Dam and snippets of Mount Hood, we parked at the base of the Bridge of the Gods. Traveling 150 miles through southern Washington, we rejoiced knowing that lean angles and uninhabited wilderness were explored, we left only a carbon footprint and killed four hours in a land so beautiful that even the gods couldn't share it. National Forest Road 90 runs along the northern shore of Swift Reservoir between Northwoods and Cougar.
