It's hot and has been for the past couple of days. Today it was close to 30 C. (I think that it's close to 90`). We even had some thunder and lightening yesterday late afternoon, but it did clear up afterwards. But I get ahead of myself.
We left Pine Needle and began our journey north and east. A really beautiful drive down Highway 410 into Yakima - the heart of the fruit-growing part of Washington state.
But you finally come down into the Kittitas Valley, home of wine grapes, fruit and cattle feed lots.
Our destination was just into Idaho, at a Corps of Engineers camp ground, highly recommended by friends Alayne and Maud. And it was indeed FABULOUS. Really very, very well maintained, in a gorgeous setting with HUGE sites. And best of all, with a National Park Senior Pass it cost only $12 per night.(!)
This morning (Thursday) it was off north into Canada (British Columbia today and tomorrow into Alberta). Very small towns, some agriculture and lots and lots of trees.
|We think this is Canola growing.|
