Aug 14, 2018 - Glengary, Idaho

This story will be told primarily in photos because that is the best way to show 27 people and three dogs having a great time with no cell coverage, no TV, and no Internet. Twelve of those people were children ranging in age from one year to 18 years. But I’m getting ahead of the story. On Saturday, August 4, when we arrived back at the motorhome on “The 70” at Glengary from our trip to Wisconsin, everything was just as we left it. The deer were still hanging around; wild turkey families were still using our “yard” for their pasture. Our...

We spent a full week in our membership park in Newport, Washington. During that week we found our coach’s water pump had sprung a leak and poured a good amount of water into our “basement” compartments. A very competent mobile mechanic made quick work of that repair, and hot, dry weather took care of drying out the compartments. At a restaurant in Priest River between Newport and Sandpoint (where Sharon grew up), we had a very nice lunch with Carolyn, one of Sharon’s best friends all through junior high and high school. It’s amazing how...

Those of you who have followed our adventures for some time know that Glengary is in northern Idaho nestled on a bay of Lake Pend Oreille not far from Sandpoint. There and in Sandpoint is where Sharon spent most of her growing up years. She still has several cousins and many friends there. We came back there again for a longer visit this time; more about that shortly. When we left Australia, we left our loyal Winston (motorhome) to be sold on consignment. Well, it finally sold. We didn’t get as much for it as the dealer had promised, but...

Leaving the Chelan area, we traveled up a 12% grade on the McNeil Canyon Road to reach the plateau above the Columbia River. This route was lined with interesting geological formations called “haystacks.” These glacial erratic boulders are near the end of the terminal moraine formed by a Pleistocene-era glacier. Geologists say they show evidence of glacial erosion and transport, and they mark the direction of movement of the glacier. And the motorhome pulled our car up that 12% grade without faltering! Proceeding east across Washington, we...

Today we settled in at Sharon’s cousin’s property along the shores of Lake Pend Oreille in northern Idaho. We are here for our annual week-long visit with Sharon’s cousins Kris and Mark and his wife, Teresa. This entry is not entirely about places we stayed; it is mostly about the scenery we encountered as we made our way across Kansas into Nebraska, through South Dakota and a little corner of Wyoming into Montana, then into Idaho. Most of the pictures accompanying this entry were taken through the windows while traveling down the...
