Farewell Bend State Park

This is a very pretty valley on the Snake River, in the middle of nowhere.
Actually we’re on the north side of the Oregon/Idaho border, along the
Oregon Trail.

This is a nice little park. We have 30amp service and water, plus a nice
view of the Snake.

Cell service comes and goes, very iffy to say the least.
We are going to take a walk with calle, and see if this
message gets out…….

3 Island State Park at Glenns Ferry, Idaho

We had the fortune of helping John & Jen start on their nursery. Jen was the
Director of the Project, including Elvis the cat, who hung the chandelier.
John watched in utter amazement. Personally I’ve never seen a cat climb a ladder…
but there are firsts for everything.

John and Michelle painted the room. I cleaned windows that had hard water deposits.
Michelle & John also did major paint stripping off a nice dresser for the cricket.
Jen wasn’t allowed to participate in any projects that had a hint of chemical(s).

But all things come to an end and our trip to Salt Lake did also.
Today we left for Idaho.

We have E service on the phone and that’s it. A nice day of driving and only two
new experiences with Huey. That would be… unexpected major wind gusts.
That has a way of clamping up the old gluteus Maximus!

But we survived and will pay more attention to swerving cars and trucks that are
within sight. This 3 Island State Park is great. Big spaces and green. Not surprising
though because they’ve had the sprinklers on since we arrived.
We are on the Snake River, about 260 miles northwest of Salt Lake City. We’ve taken
a bike ride already, and will go for a walk after dinner.
