Catching up on our road trip after a few days just enjoying the experiences. We spent two days in Rawlins, before heading to Ogden, UT. From Ogden, we stayed in Caldwell, ID on our way to Portland, OR.
After a nice stay in Rawlins, it was time to move on to Ogden, UT.
We stopped at a pullout on the back side of the Snowbasin ski resort. Beautiful views:
We had a good evening in Ogden, but it was time to move on towards Idaho.
We usually could plan our trips to avoid most of the rush hour traffic around major metropolitan areas, but we were unlucky in Idaho. We hit Boise and Nampa traffic right at rush hour.
Unfortunately, because we arrived so late to the RV park, we didn’t have any time to check out local attractions before sunset.
We headed out the next morning to Burns, OR.
We arranged time in our schedule to visit one of Bob’s friends in the Burns, OR area. We arrived at our RV park right before check-in, and had a lineup of 4 RVs behind us.
Bob’s friend kept us busy the next day, including a short trip to a friend’s bison ranch.
It was time to move on to Portland, OR.
This was the longest portion of our trip in one day, approximately 6-7 hours of driving. We’ll be in the Portland area until roughly June 15, so I’ll update as I have time.
BONUS: Oregon Coast
The Oregon Coast is my happy place. I really miss being able to drive 1-2 hours to the Pacific Ocean. So our first stop was the Peter Iredale shipwreck at the Fort Stevens State Park in Warrenton, OR.
We had some lunch at the McMenamin’s Sandtrap restaurant in Gearhart, before heading to my favorite place on the Oregon Coast, Tolovana Park and Haystack Rock.
