Jul 29, 2015 - Eurika! I left Ukiah

My stint at Lake Mendocino is over and I'm off to somewhere. I think I'll go north for awhile, then east, then south and, if all goes as planned, I'll end up in Arizona. High lights of the summer in Ukiah were lunch at the Railroad Station Restaurant in Cloverdale with Deb Francis and touring the local attractions with Manuel and Joan. Deb and I worked together at Boeing. Manuel and I worked together for several seasons at Navajo State Park in Colorado. Well, I headed East just like I planned until I came to the large blinking sign saying...

Apr 20, 2015 - Plush and Lakeview

We have been having a quiet week. reading, relaxing, drives up the mountain to look for critters and cell signal and I made a basket. We finally hit some warm temps and both are sporting sunburns now! We took a little drive to civilization. The nearest town is 10 miles away, and that is Plush Oregon. They have a few houses and a general store. It supposedly has a population of 100 but the density is one person for square mile, and we did not see but maybe 10 houses. Supposedly it got its name in the 1880s when some cowboys were playing...

May 23, 2013 - Lakeview, Oregon border

Today we left Reno and crossed back into California on Hwy 395. We were climbing and viewing wide open spaces with some ranches and cattle herds. We experienced some rain and a little hail in the afternoon. We stopped for lunch in Alturas. I had seen photos of this area from a friend that used to live here and it is a lovely town. It has a western flair, with some murals and ranches & horses. It has an interesting Elks Lodge building that looked like an old California Mission. This North Eastern corner of California is farmland,...

Jul 22, 2011 - Oregon

Hello, I know I said we would spend another day at the Lewis and Clark park, but Thursday morning it was 58° and raining steady and predicted to rain all day. We packed up and left for Oregon, to my surprise when I told the park Ranger we were not staying he refunded our money. We crossed the bridge to Astoria, Oregon in the fog, and arrived at the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum about 11:00 AM. What a magnificent display, the Howards Hughes' "spruce goose" (H-4) is the centerpiece, with hundreds of other aircraft. From the Wright...

Sep 14, 2010 - Surprises, but no limes

Our plans for the next couple of weeks really revolve around working our way south into California, staying east of the Sierras, visiting a couple of a favorite spots from past visits and then turning east to Arizona, stopping off to visit our friends the Wishnies at their camp-hosting job near Cottonwood AZ sometime after the first of October. So our next couple of stops were picked mostly for proximity to Highway 395 (our route south) and reasonable travel distances. Sometimes it works out great, other times . . . not so much. We left...

Sep 7, 2010 - Lakeview, OR

Today had its ups and downs. We started the day back at the casino. Included in our campground packet was a ticket for a free continental breakfast. We have a hard time turning down anything “free.” It turned out that the continental breakfast was a glass of juice and a pastry. However, the ticket could be used for $2.00 off for each of us in the Traditional Buffet. We both had huge breakfasts and copious quantities of coffee and the bill came to $5.00. We felt so full that we knew we wouldn’t eat lunch. After breakfast we drove into...

Sep 5, 2010 - Lakeview, Oregon

It was -1 C this morning. Go figure!! We waited until 9:30 before donning our gear and heading out. If nothing else, our ride today was very diverse. We left Bend Oregon by driving back through the Redwood trees, then up into some mountains, down a mountain and into rolling hills and farmland. Our GPS kept sending us to lakes, but alas, the lakes were all dried up. (pic) There were miles and miles of nothing in between these lakes (or shall I say nonlakes?) We arrived at Lakeview, Oregon and stopped at a small town cafe (Tall Town Cafe &...

Jul 14, 2010 - Lakeview, Oregon - 451 miles

Wow - 53 degrees this morning in Eureka. We had to dig out our cold weather gear! I forgot to mention that yesterday, we were on the "Loneliest Highway" getting to Eureka and it continued on to the tiny town of Austin, Nevada. Beautiful country to ride through on our way to Battle Mountain and then up to Winnemucca. It warmed up at lunchtime - mostly mid-80's which was perfect riding weather. No wind or rain sprinkles today. Saw a donkey by the side of the road - lots of open range with cattle. It's sometimes 80 miles between available gas...

Sep 17, 2009 - Lakeview,OR

As you can see, we are in Oregon. It's beautiful here. So peaceful and quite. We need this rest because getting here, as beautiful as it was, was stressful. The traveling up and down mountains, and I mean mountains, was a trip! Going up was to about 6000 ft.and going down was curvey with no guard rails...straight down! Anyway, we are here by the Juniper reservoir, with the mule deer, elk, cows (it's also a 8000 acre ranch) hawks, geese etc. We will head to Grant's Pass tomorrow. You all take care. Fondly Nancy and Steve

Sep 9, 2009 - Time for Some Altitude - Lakeview, OR

Yesterday we were lucky to get another gloriously sunny day for our last look at the Pacific for awhile. After kissing Kissing Rock goodbye we drove the coast from Gold Beach to the California line and beyond to almost Crescent City. If you ever have a few weeks or months and want a great drive, bike or hike, start in Hermiston, OR and follow the Columbia River Gorge (I-84 and higway 30) to Astoria, OR and then go south on 101 to the California Line. Take lots of time, the scenery is fabulous! When we turned east on highway 99 the world...

Mar 21, 2009 - The High Trail North to Oregon

Mar 20 & 21 Roseville, CA to Lakeview, OR via Reno, NV We left Roseville rested and renewed by mid-morning under sunny skies and 17 degrees Celsius temperature. We were headed to Reno, NV along Interstate 80. Our ascent up the west side the Sierra Nevada took us through more of California’s Gold Rush country. Discovery of gold in 1848 was towards the end of the Mexican-American War that yielded California to the US. During this time many easterners made the treacherous journey to emigrate from the US into California to obtain riches or...
