Perry and Lizzet after graduation!
We went to their wedding in Spain two years ago....
We took a ten day road trip to Sacramento, California this month to help a good friend celebrate his graduation from law school.
We drove over Stevens Pass Thursday morning, through the small town of Thorpe to visit and old mill (We have the excellent A Road History of Washington
to lead us to interesting side trips...). Once in Oregon, we stumbled on the near ghost town of Chaniko, and also made a stop at the spectacular Ogden Scenic Wayside near Redmond. (We also have A Roadside History of Oregon
We then over-nighted in Bend, Oregon, right on the Deshutes River, and continued south on Friday to Sacramento.
The graduation was Saturday afternoon, and it was followed by a tour of the McGeorge School of Law campus (part of University of the Pacific) and then a private dinner. University of the Pacific is the oldest college in California.
On Monday we visited with Bill's cousin and his wife in Emoryville, near Berkeley. Bill's cousin has just entered an assisted living facility, but remembered Bill and loved reminiscing. We left Emoryville in the mid-afternoon, planning to take a scenic route north east to Chico, where we would stay
Old mill in Thorpe, WA
It was built in 1880 and operated until 1941
with friends for two nights. Unfortunately, the traffic was horrible and the BMW started overheating in the middle of a traffic jam. Fortunately, there was a BMW repair shop nearby. The owner offered to stay open late for us and we were back on the road by 6:30pm with a new coolant reservoir tank.
