FALL Colors Tour 2019 - 10/26/19
Summer may be over but our driving season is not! We have one more epic tour this year with the Fall Colors Tour to The Dalles. Tour Meister Tom has put together an exciting route with a great balance of technical twisties, roller coaster sweepers, and some mellow time as well to keep us all entertained.
For our Fall Colors tour this year we will feature driving experiences both familiar and new. We begin in Troutdale and travel along our previous year’s route through the Bull Run area of Clackamas County, proceeding toward Sandy. We then take back roads up the slopes of Mt. Hood to the Rhododendron area for a rest stop. Then after heading up past Government camp we’ll take a seldom traveled back road down the east slopes of Mt. Hood towards The Dalles for a rest stop. Following this we’ll take our familiar and very enjoyable drive on 7 mile road, but this time we’ll go in the reverse direction. After arriving in Mosier thoroughly satisfied, we’ll take the freeway into Cascade locks for a group meal and camaraderie which will complete the tour.
There will be three rest stops along the way. Lunch in Cascade locks will be in the early-mid afternoon, so consider packing a snack and a drink for a rest stop.
For this tour we’ll be traveling in groups guided by leaders and sweepers.
Please Note: Only current BMW CCA members may drive on this tour, passengers need not be members.
