Sep 4, 2014 - wed. sept 3 first day on the road

We started the day with a great breakfast at the casino. It was still rainy but as soon as we got over the pass it cleared up and we had an easy drive thru tri cities down into oregon and made it to Farewell State Park near the Oregon/ idaho border around 2:30 pm. It's on the snake river and as there were only a few other campers we got a site near the water (with a view). Sat by the river and watched pelicans, geese and some big fish jumping for bugs. A lovely start for our trip.

Sep 15, 2012 - Vancouver, Canada to Ontario, Oregon

As we camped in northern Washington, I realized that we were only 30 miles or so from Vancouver, Canada (British Columbia).

After following the Snake River for 330 miles, Oregon Trail pioneers rested above the bend in the river here, then bid farewell to the Snake River and continued their trek. Wagon ruts can still be seen north of the park.

Apr 7, 2008 - Traveling through Oregon

Slept GREAT last night. No noise and no lights! Went for a jog, got lost and eventually had to jog to the entrance of Dallas & Julie’s subdivision to find my way back. Funny. Had a real shower in their house while the guys played X-Box. Even Jayce tried it and loved it. When we left, we followed Dallas on his way to work. He took us to Costco gas (our second tank already-$80 USD) and then we followed him to I-84. We then entered Oregon over the Columbia River Bridge. The I-84 follows the river East, with Washington on the North side of the...
