The Road Seen Below is the Old Road From the 1930's
We took all back roads and were shocked at the mile-after-mile of crops. Most of it appeared to be wheat, oats, or similar crop. The area was devoid of trees, and every square inch was crops. All of a sudden the terrain changed to rocks and hills and then there was livestock. This happened several times, but as best we can estimate, there was over 100 miles of crops and 30 miles of livestock. BORING RIDE…Hey – one has to take the good with the bad. Despite the fact we probably averaged 45 MPH on Rt 12 for 150 miles or so, had two construction delays, stopped for lunch, and several times for drinks and to cool off, we still did almost 500 miles today. The last 100 or so was rough. It was on a secondary road, and NOTHING was around.
The state park where we are staying is a nice one, but the temps are straining our tolerance. I believe once we head out west from here the temps will cool as we go towards Seattle, and most likely rain. The campground is overrun with seagulls. They are scavengers and several are waiting in the roadway for us to leave something out, or throw them something.
