|Shasta Lakes Region of Northern California.|
|Our RV spot in Red Bluff, CA|
|Mount Shasta on Saturday morning.|
|Snow was clearly seen at the higher elevations.|
|Bare winter driving conditions.|
|Would you believe that we arrived at the RV park in Salem, Oregon, during a pounding rain storm?|
|I-5 traffic blocked at the draw bridge over the Columbia River.|
We were held up at the major bridge that crosses the Columbia River from Oregon into Washington State. The draw bridge had to be lifted for a ship that was heading east on the river. That led to a 30 minute delay. An accident a few miles earlier held us up for another 20 minutes. That was on Sunday morning. We could hardly believe the volume of traffic! It was very heavy.
|Rain and sleet|
|Downtown Seattle seen under a heavy cloud cover - with sporadic rain showers.|
|Crossing @ the much smaller Aldergrove border crossing into Canada.|
|Removing the motorcycle from the swivel wheel, shortly after we arrived.|
|Jeanette and I removed most of the items from our two refrigerators.|
|Fiver is backed onto the driveway - opened up and waiting for me to vacuum, shampoo the rugs and complete a bit of required maintenance. After we close it up, it will be pushed back,along the house, and locked in its rightful spot.|
|OK! That's enough work for one day.|
We had a fabulous 2.5 months of winter travel in the US southwest. We shared many, many laughs with so many like minded folks, shared some wonderful time on the golf links, hiked and motorcycled to new places and shared great food with really good folks. So, what's not to like about that! It was fun. To everyone we met along the way, a special thank you!
We look forward to next winter's journey!
Thanks for dropping by.
