Puget Sound

I-5 was moving good so we decided to stay on it thru...

A traffic backup going into Seattle as we were leaving

Ship on the Kalama River - just off the Columbia

There is so much wood in the NW!

The mighty Columbia River between Vancouver, WA & Portland, OR

Willamette River at Eugene, OR

This area has been logged

Umpqua River near Roseburg, OR

Home for the nite at the fairgrounds in Roseburg

We decided to high-tail it back to the central coast of CA before the Labor Day Weekend & the 2 extra days in Williams Lake took away any sightseeing or visiting time we would have had so we're just headed south on the fastest possible route. Toni told us yesterday that the Escapees rule was that you're supposed to stop for the day after 200 miles or 2:00 pm - we broke that rule today (we drove for close to 400 mi & stopped at 5:30) & will for the next 2 days. Sorry! We also missed visiting with friends in Vancouver, WA, today & will miss visiting with friends on the Oregon coast on our way south. The vacation is over & we're headed "home." Know it's not supposed to be this way when you're retired but we can't seem to help ourselves!

We're stopped for the nite at the fairgrounds in Roseburg, OR. They have full hookup sites (although we're just using their electric) & it's very convenient to the freeway. Nice overnite stop.

More later...
