SAD GOODBYE TO THE NORTHWEST

The last 3 months have passed very quickly, and we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here visiting with family and friends. We are feeling the need for sun and warmer temps and so it's time to head south.

This morning we pulled out of the Lake Pleasant RV park just north of Seattle around 8:45.  Leaving on Sunday morning allowed us to have very light traffic as we headed south on I 405 to pick up I 90 going east. 

With sunny skies and beautiful scenery we made good time today and are spending the evening at the Oregon Trails RV Park in Baker City, Oregon. It's a nice park, not very full, and with our Camp Club membership it only cost us $12.50 for the night.

In the morning we want to visit the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center before hitting the road again.  We are planning a short rendezvous with our friends Bob and Linda who are waiting for us in Nephi, Utah.  If  all goes well we should see them Tuesday afternoon.

Until later.

Loved the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center. We could have stayed thee longer but Max, who was 10 at the time only lasted about 2 /12 hours.

Enjoy your time there and safe traveling.

Good job on avoiding the Seattle traffic--not an easy feat. We loved the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center, also. We were there in May and also visited there more than a decade ago. It's a fantastic museum. Safe travels on your way south!
