Late stop last night...early stop today

We ended up stopping at a rest area just east of Boise, ID last night to get a little sleep. We hit the road early again this morning with plans to drive to Maryhill State Park on the Columbia River in Washington. Well… this morning about 8:30 a.m. we were just east of Baker City, OR when a little drizzle started to fall which quickly turned into white stuff!! Yep, snow in May! Since we knew Cabbage Hill (a.k.a. Meacham Pass or Deadman Pass on I-84) is not fun even in nice weather (very steep) and with the snow starting to cover the highway we decided to try to find some place to park in Baker City.

We found a Good Sam’s park listed on the GPS; Oregon Trails West. Easily found , pulled in and they happily had a site for us! So about 9:00 a.m. we set up and have been hunkered down watching the snow fall. Looks to be a nice little park.

Hopefully we can head out tomorrow, we are watching the weather closely and keeping our fingers crossed!

Hi! Yea, crazy to have snow in May! Cheye is really getting into having her head out the window lately. When she gets bored and fidgety we roll down the window and she is amused for hours. We call it smell-a-vision :o)
