Oregon – Pelton Dam

As I drove across Oregon, I turned off Highway 26 to visit the Pelton Dam.   (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pelton_Dam)

The drive to the dam was beautiful!

Oregon – Ochoco Reservoir (Prineville area)

I traveled through central Oregon on Highway 26.  As I approached Prineville, I felt delighted to see the Ochoco Reservoir.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ochoco_Dam & http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prineville,_Oregon)

Idaho – Glenns Ferry

As I drove further into southern Idaho, the landscape started changing.  So I jumped off the highway (Interstate 84) in the Glenns Ferry area to get a some pictures.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glenns_Ferry,_Idaho)

Since I live in Oregon, I loved seeing signs about the Oregon Trail.  I felt like I was almost home….

Idaho – Bliss

A couple weeks ago, I drove through southern Idaho.   The Interstate (I-84) took me through the Bliss area.   (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bliss,_Idaho)

I pulled off the exit to get a few pictures of how flat the countryside looked (for miles  and miles  and miles).

BlissID2015 (8)I love this sign.

Silly me, I chose to go straight.  I have been looking for bliss all my life…  🙂

Here are some pictures from the exit ramp…

Utah – mid-state (near 108 mile marker – Interstate 84)

As I traveled along Interstate 84 in Utah, I was struck by the beautiful landscape.

Somewhere near mile marker 111, I drove into a gorgeous canyon (created so the road could pass).  It was a surreal experience.  Loved it!  I attempted to take photographs of the canyon, but it hardly does any justice.

Several  miles down the road (around mile marker 108), I pulled off the road and took some pictures of a beautiful stream.

Wyoming – Green River

A little over a week ago, I drove through Wyoming on my way to Oregon.  Just off the interstate (I-80), I saw some beautiful scenery – in the small town of Green River, Wyoming.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_River,_Wyoming)

Nebraska – Unadilla (Chisholm Family Farm & Orchard Hill Creamery)

My friend and I visited Chisholm Family Farm & Orchard Hill Creamery in Unadilla, Nebraska (http://www.chisholmfamilyfarm.com/http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unadilla,_Nebraska).

While my friend shopped at the store, I walked around and took pictures.  I was quickly greeted by the farmer’s young child (about 5 years old), who joyously volunteered to assist me.

The boy introduced me to the chickens and roosters.

A farmer led me down a pasture to look for the cows.
