Once in a while we have a cold but clear day in January, when we can pull on our skates and test our resistance to the strong winds of the Columbia Gorge. With any luck, the wind will be in our face as we head eastward, enabling us to get a
good workout in the beginning. Then, when we turn around and head west, the wind literally blows us back to our cars.
