3-4 September (LaGrande, OR)

3 September – Took a little side trip to Silverton, OR (but, still moving on east) to visit the Dunhams’ friends they met in Germany 30 years ago (the Branstetters). We had a wonderful time seeing their two daughters and their children, and exploring their beautiful estate and vineyard. From their home, on a clear day, you can see Mt. Saint Helens, Mt. Rainier, Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams. The saying is true that with good friends you pick up right where you left off when you saw them last. We reminisced, laughed, told stories and ate at the Oregon Garden (wonderful meal). What a great, fun day! Thanks for your hospitality, Marcia and Mason–we loved the farmlands, your town of Silverton and the campground (Silver Spur RV). Would love to stay here longer, but we do need to be moving on.

4 September – Drove 300 miles to La Grande, OR (Eagles Hot Lake RV) along the Columbia River and Dalles. We passed windmills and lush greenery; then everything turned to brown hills.
