B is Bend, Oregon, and C is the Columbia River, a couple of hundred miles roughly north along the Cascade Mountains. And I'd know exactly how many steps, if I hadn't lost my pedometer the first day of the trip, which began at the Elk Lake trailhead on the Century Drive outside Bend. Since that loss was about the worst thing that happened, all in all I'd have to rate the experience a very good one.
