Bohemia City, Oregon that is.  I'll take our English style beers over the Czech stuff!  My GoPro skills are worse than my garage skills, but for the Covid frustrated who are ready to move to God's country here's a taste of western Oregon in summer.  First time I've been up there and its less than 90 minutes from my house.  This ride starts at 1800 feet and tops out at 6000, what's blooming at the top bloomed a month ago at the bottom.  Killer riding, beautiful forest, rhododendron, dogwood and bear grass in bloom, fair amount of old growth left, and just a terrible (fun) road up.  There are a couple of old wagon roads they've saved as jeeper trails one of them, Noonday Ridge, is the route up in this vid.  The creeks are super clear and inviting but these old mines leach arsenic and mercury so you're not supposed to eat the fish from this drainage (Row River drainage).  

42 miles, total elevation gain 6100'.  Probably 1/3 was the jeeper trails.

And not a Covid in sight.

Speaking of English beer just over the ridge to the north is Oakridge, home to the finest English pub west of the Mississippi: https://hopstories.com/brewersunionlocal180

Sounded like you were enjoying yourself! Fantastic trails and perfect weather. Those Covids - they like to hang out in more populated areas!
