You have to cross Oregon's McKenzie River a few times on the eponymously named trail that runs beside it. This bridge is a little ways upstream from the 100-foot-high Sahalie Falls, and there are singletrack trails on both sides of the river here. The heavens poured rain on the area for about half an hour shortly after we shot this photo, but our group found shelter under the towering trees near the river and stayed dry there until the rain stopped. That's Melanie Fisher of Cog Wild Bicycle Tours and Shuttles in the front here, with colleague Seth Graham second, MBA's Jimmy Mac third, Cannondale's Bill Rudell fourth, and Chris Collins fifth.
