May 10, 2017 - Day 11 - Tourist - John Day Fossil Beds NP

We had a fabulous day playing tourist. We spent the entire day at the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument. We visited the Painted Hills Unit, the Sheep Rock Unit and the Thomas Condon Paleontology Center. We took lots of great photos. I have not had time to write about the day or post the photos. For those of you that are on my e-mail update list, I will send a notice when this page is completed. The first photo was taken at 3:07 am. I just happened to wake up, walk a few feet from the bedroom to the kitchen for a glass of water, and...

Summer Trip 2012

May 16, 2006 - We're on the Road Again!

We're headed for Iowa! We have to be there June 5 so that the Winnebago folks can do some repairs on Rocinante. We left Wilsonville and drove to Vancouver, WA so some nice folks up there can get ready to do a little remodeling of the motorhome when we return in the fall. We're planning to keep Rocinante (Rosie for short) for a long time, and some changes will make her an even more comfortable home. Our stop the first night was at Ainsworth State Park in the Columbia River Gorge. We were able to sit out in the late afternoon and chat with...
