Hello. It’s me!!
As Sheryl Crow once said, “Every Day Is A Winding Road”. This afternoon certainly qualified. We made the drive from Pendleton up to Pullman/Moscow.
The featured overlook of the day was just north of Lewiston, ID / Clarkston, WA.
That’s the confluence of the Whitewater River and Snake River down there … a few thousand feet down there. Look at the curvy road that one can take down the mountain!!!
That’s what Dad thinks a good view looks like. For a refresher course, here’s what Mom thinks a good view looks like.
When I get out of the rig, here’s the view I get to enjoy.
Snakes and Dead People, my friends.
Snakes and Dead People, #amirite?
Dad called this his “favorite day” of the trip. He found the Palouse and GMO-altered 2-foot-high wheat fields to be everything he thought it would be, and more.
We even drove around Washington State University and the University of Idaho today.
I tried to attend a football game today, but as per usual, nobody was playing and dogs weren’t allowed anyway.
Earlier in the day Mom made a trip to Pendleton Woolen Mills. Needless to say, she was giddy with excitement.
I manned the RV while Mom & Dad took a tour of the facility. Apparently there used to be a thousand woolen mills … now there are five. But my goodness, the 60ish employees at this mill are kickin’ it, aren’t they?
Mom also made a handful of purchases. Turns out there is a store right out of the exit of the tour. Isn’t it funny that they’d put a store right at the exit of the tour? What a coincidence!!
Our day ended at a campground on the banks of the Snake River. We got to enjoy the sunset and we got to enjoy a history lesson regarding Lewis & Clark and their journey down the Snake River.
Tomorrow we back-track to Walla Walla, where we are told that food and ample grape-based beverages are available.
P.S.: Mom tried to visit the Nez Perce National Historical Park today, but was locked out because the park closed at 4:00pm. Turns out I was locked out as well.
P.P.S.: What the ….?
