We're on a cross-country roadtrip heading (eventually, hopefully) to warm winter weather.
On Saturday, our first full day on the road, we drove a little over 400 miles from Boardman Oregon to Missoula Montana. It was a four-state day. That's a rare thing in the Western part of this country,
We stayed Friday night in the eastern Oregon town of Boardman .... the sunsets over the Columbia River are beautiful in this desert community.
We breezed right through Washington .... including Clarkston, where we graduated from high school. To this point, the trip was the exact same one we made last month for my high school class reunion. (When we were in school over half a century ago, the annual re-painting of the "C" up on the hill was a big deal...it still looks pretty clear, so I guess that tradition is still alive.)
From Clarkston, we traveled East up the beautiful canyons of Idaho's Clearwater River and on along the Selway and Lochsa rivers toward Montana. It has been years since we traveled this scenic route last.
We're barely into the State here, but the sky is already living up to Montana's nickname "Big Sky Country."
Day One on the road was a beautiful start for our trip. We love traveling in the Fall (as long as we don't run into too much of the season that comes next).
