We made the Big Turn and started for Montana and Cowboy Rex. To get there we needed to drive across Washington and Idaho.
Why, yes it does rain in Washington.
east toward Olympia.
Did I mention it rains in Washington?
Wow! Looks like that rig is loosing its tandem! More on that when we get to Rex’s.
a big “G”
with the “G” out of the way, we saw the Cascades.. cool, huh?..
…a cascading cascade in the Cascades…
More from the road:
Soon we were on the eastern slopes…
..which had been invaded by windmill aliens:
We started to notice there wasn’t any trees around. (We think the alien windmill men cut them all down to send to planet Tree-less or to eat.)
Hey, another bridge. This one is across the Columbia River..
……after ‘da bridge
We stopped for a break..
and that’s when we saw them…
the Wyld Stallyns of Vantage, Washington.
We press on. Still no trees..
..but we did find Alfalfa…we found potatoes, too, but lost them..
Then we found Spokane. We blew right thru…so..
..we could catch up to the Idaho shower..
We stayed the night at the Coeur d’ Alene Cabelas just over the Idaho line. Coeur d’ Alene means “heart of awl”.. really – I looked it up.
We looked for Treaty Rock..
….Mary found it…
..or maybe I did….
Next: We cross Idaho and find Montana
