After complaining about our miserable summer, DH and I decided we had enough and went in search of some heat. Having no destination is mind, we headed north. We ended up traveling more than 2700 miles and saw some of the most gorgeous sunny and warm sights. Our journey took us through Oregon, Washington. Idaho, Montana and Nevada before returning home. It was delightful.
Great scenes from eastern Oregon.
Oregon is great for a full car service when you gas up. LOVED it!!!
Endless open roads...ahhhhh!
But....you have to keep your eyes open!
I think it is time for this baby to fly the coop.
Fields of wheat in eastern Washington.
I found this design very interesting. Sorry that the picture was taken through the buggy window.
Chief Timothy Bridge
We followed this river all day along Hwy. 12 through Idaho and into Montana. It was just gorgeous.
The Sawtooth Mountains in Idaho.
Loved this collection of mailboxes in the old mining town of Cherry Creek, off Hwy. 93
The times have changed for them.
I wish I knew more about geology when I look at this range of mountains.
We DID find the heat......
Just as we reached Las Vegas.
We came home to a few days of nice weather, but it has once again returned to the same gloom. It is really sad to see people wearing sweatshirts all day long. SIGH!
One thing about having no internet is that it does allow a little more time at the sewing machine. I was concerned about not completing my Schnibbles quilt for this month considering that we were gone and there were sixty snowballs to construct, but...ta-da!!!!
This is the Eden line of fabric from Moda.
There is lots more that has gone on around here, but I will save it for another post. I will leave you with this picture. How many muscles do you think it takes to get nto this position? I think it would be great for my abs.
