Oregon Odyssey – Day Five

Today’s word… drive.  Drive and then drive and continue to drive for hours.  It was tiring, but it was also gorgeous.  Colorado and southern Utah are so beautiful.  If you haven’t experienced this part of the country, you should.  Seriously.  Plan your trip immediately.  It will be worth it.

Besides the beautiful landscape there were cows, horses, sheep, some asses, and an antelope.  And there were gas stations, rest stops, one really good coffee shop (Coffee Trader in Montrose, Colorado), one funky but not so good coffee place, a mini hike up a semi-steep hill to give the pups a walk and also to see what was on the other side.  On the other side was an antelope running down the middle of a road and a beautiful view of the nearby colorful striated hillside.  It was worth the little jaunt.  It was also nice to stretch the legs.

Tonight we are languishing in Burley, Idaho on the Snake River.  Tomorrow… Oregon.  Not quite all the way home, but we’re getting there.

  1. It looks like you’ve been having a beautiful trip. Thanks for sharing your road adventures and photos. Will we get to see you? Would love to have you and Karen here for dinner. We could include some other folks if you’d like to combine some visits. Send me an email and let me know.

    • Penny… We will be coming up that way a time or two. Mostly to do stuff at the rentals and such. We have the dogs, which makes it tougher to do things. I may come up by myself one day to stop by the department and see everyone. Maybe, if I do that, I can stop by your place for a bit to say hello and visit with you. I’d like that a lot.
