A Develishish Day

Charleston to Port Orford

We climbed 2500 feet today! Before we even started, we watched a Marathon run head out at 7:45am. 

27 brave runners took off in chilly conditions but the rain had stopped!

Too many to count! The 10K runners were going later so we headed off up Seven Devils Road.

Seven Devils Road was great fun followed by Beaverhill Road, Humphreys, Whiskey Run and onto Seven Devils back to 101. From there we zipped down to Bandon. 

Coming into Bandon we stopped at the wetlands!
