Miles Driven today 113

Today we are on the road headed for Mary Hill Winery (Mary Hill for those that do not know is one of our really good friends, so it is only right that we stop and sample the wine and buy a few bottles to carry back east, it is not shipped east).

We are travelling along the Columbia River which is such a pretty drive, again seeing barges headed for the Pacific Ocean, and such beautiful scenery. Mary Hill area is very dry and HOT.

Did the wine tasting, toured the Mary Hill Museum, and Stonehedge (which is a reproduction of the oringal Stone Hedge in Europe (for me this was a must do just in case I do not see the one in Europe.

The wine tasting was fun, but it was so hot that we rushed thru something that I had really planned to go slow and enjoy.

Mary Hill Mansion, turned out to be a museum of outlandish furnishings. Not my cup of tea. The lower floor held alot of sculptures that were really nice, they were by the artist that also did "The Thinker".

Stone Hedge was just awesome, built in memory of the soldiers and sailors of Klickitat County who gave their lives for others.
