More from Central Oregon

Reading on the Mothership, our granddaughter misses some of the sights as we travel across Central Oregon. Needless to say, she is an avid reader ( voracious, maybe). I think that is her brother’s foot sticking up on the left. I guess I kind of got him in the shot.

From Prairie City to John Day, OR.

Just some shots from the cockpit of the Mothership as we made our way from Prairie City to John Day. The Fossil Center was really busy the morning we were there, but we did get a chance to see all of the exhibits, just not go out on the trail or whatever to see the actual beds. Just keeping track of two grandchildren, when I’m in a boot and need a cane to navigate, was a challenge enough indoors!

As an aside: the motorhome you see in the photo we seemed to have followed for a couple of hours. Not much traffic on this road, which is nice. Just a bit boring looking at the back of the same motorhome for miles!

Prairie City, OR.

After leaving Weiser, ID. we drove to Prairie City, OR. The campsite was on the grounds of the local museum and adjacent to a pasture of sorts and a cemetery. It was nice to have full hookups after dry camping in Weiser. As we drove across central Oregon the haze from forest fires was everywhere, it seemed. We had our grandkids with us so they kept us on our toes. There favorite spot was the cemetery across the street. I had to corral them before dusk as they wanted to read every headstone. Burial sites dating back to Civil War days. The cemetery was located across a narrow road and was the highest point in the area. The dead got the best real estate!
