We left Puyallup this morning around 10:30am PST. the scenery was a little dull through the first part of Oregon. Then, as we ascended up into the mountains, it vastly improved. We did not stop anywhere except to get gas. I drove today for about 189 miles, which was a huge blessing because it was in a very mountainous & curvy area....no motion sickness! YAY...I must confess that I was secretly wishing that Larry would get sick so he would have som empathy for all the suffering I did ! LOL sshhh
We saw several areas where fires had gone through and burned a lot of vegetation. As we watch the news tonight, we see that Idaho has had a lot of burning through out the day.
We arrived in Caldwell, Idaho this evening around 9:20pm, MST....We are in the Country Corners Campground. It's clean, cheap and has all the essentials. There's even a garden where you can pick fresh vegetables for yourself...and it's free! Who'd have thunk it! LOL ;-)
Tomorrow we hope to arrive at Sue's in Salt Lake City (Sugar House). We drove more than half way today.
