The Wheatland Ferry is a cable ferry that crosses the Willamette River. Here are my photos of the Ferry ride.

The second cemetery was easy to find. It was out in the middle of a pea field. Bwahahaha, for some reason that just tickled my fancy.
From the church, I biked down a little gravel road to the cemetery. I was thrilled to see so many old grave markers at the cemetery.
I plan on going back to that area to bike some more. Expect more blog posts soon.

To get to the cemetery, I went past this cute old church in the tiny town of St. Louis. Yes, there is a St. Louis, Oregon. I live within 30 minutes of the town and never knew it existed.
