Idaho Border

Columbia River

Washington mimicking Palm Springs

Rest area camp site



We really enjoyed watching the deer before going to bed last night. Said Goodbye to Aunt Susie this morning and Janice managed not to cry. We had to go to Big Sky Brewing company and get Chris's new supply of Moose Drool. Got to the tasting room early so we had to wait 20 whole minutes in the motor-home until they opened. Montana has no sales tax, so way cool getting two cases and no CRV. Tried a sweet beer, but Karen still did the yucky icky dance with one little eensy beensy sip. She had to eat some hot tamales to get the taste out of her mouth. Rearranged the basement a little to fit the cases in, but you know, it is for Chris, so we did work it to fit them in. After our little rendezvous with the brewing company, we continued on the I-90 west. We have never driven past Missoula on the 90 before. Very enlightening.

Coeur D' Alene was really pretty, Nonnie always talked about how Janice would love it there. The lake was huge! The hills of Idaho changed into flat prairie type land once we were west of Spokane. We were surprised how desert-y it looked. Felt like we were back in South Dakota again until we hit the Columbia River. Since tomorrow is Karen's birthday, we found a salmon hatchery to visit just outside of Cle Elum so we found a rest area to spend the night in so we could be there first thing in the morning. Then...onto Seattle for her birthday dinner and points west. Not too far, we are not going to sink into the ocean!
