Our 3,548 mile cross-country road trip is over and it is great to be home again in Oregon. We drove through 12 states -- a lot of miles of road, sky, and sagebrush. On quite a few days, the highlights were our lunch stops. We tried to find local places to eat because it's a lot more fun than fast-food freeway stops. Some stops were more successful than others, but all added to the interest of a long long trip.
Fortunately, the long miles were punctuated with two beautiful stops. We spent some wonderful time with our Colorado family. I posted a few pictures from that stop last week . Following are a few more.
We had such a good time in Colorado and it was hard to leave. But at the same time, we were looking forward to getting back to our relatively new Oregon home (we moved into our apartment there last fall) and of course to having time to visit with the rest of our family in the Pacific Northwest.
To break up the rest of our trip home, we decided to spend a couple of nights at French Glen in Eastern Oregon (we live in Eugene in the western part of the state). This is just a teaser photo from the Steens Mountains -- I still have more to post from Colorado as well as from this stop as we get back into our Oregon routine.
