April 18 - 20: Boise to Newport, OR

Rt 20 on the way to Sisters, OR

There was quite a bit of flooding along the road, but this was the only flooding we encountered on the road.

Pretty in a stark kind of way.

These are the mountains that surround Sisters, OR taken from miles away.  The town of Sisters is named for mountains called The Three Sisters.  The "sisters" are named Faith, Hope, and Charity.

Home sweet home in Sisters, OR.  We have stayed at this RV park just south of Sisters before but it was smaller when we stayed there and wasn't paved.  The sites are level, long, and large.  There is a pond out behind our truck that doesn't show up well in the photo.  The name of this lovely RV park is Bend/Sisters Garden RV Resort.

Going over the Cascade Mountains Rt 20W on our way to Newport, Oregon.

See the long pole in the lower right corner?  It is there so snow plows know where the edge of the road is.  There was snow in the Cascades a few days before we drove them and more snow predicated in the next day or two, but it was clear and dry when we drove over them.

We arrived at Beverly Beach State Park in the middle of the afternoon and this is my first photo of the Pacific Ocean this trip, but it won't be the last.
