Travel to Fruitland, Idaho today, goodbye Oregon. At 10 a.m. it’s all ready 75 degrees, but low humidity. We lose an hour today.

Haha, we pass through a town called Brothers on the way. First there’s Sisters, now Brothers.

Passed an enticing sign:

Antelope - $495.00. Hmmm, maybe we should buy some to take home. Oh, but there’s no delivery! Scratch that!

No highway driving today today, all good back roads though. Seeing few towns or cities, lots of mesas, hills, and high desert country.

At 1:30 we set our watches ahead to 2:30 MDT. Passing lots of ranches with sheep, cows, horses, goats, cattle on a thousand hills… Fields of corn, onions, and chard.

4 P.M., welcome to Idaho. 96 degrees at 4:30, yikes.

A catch up day for us here in Fruitland, Idaho. Will got the truck and trailer all washed and Marge did some laundry. We also got some more cool weather clothes put away for the rest of the trip. Our campsite has lots of trees and we are in the shade. This really helps with the A/C keeping up.

After lunch we did some reading and E mails to catch up with friends and family. Also got ready to leave tomorrow for Massacre Rocks SP, still in Idaho.

A real lazy day with some news and a movie to end the day.
