Road Trip 2017

IMG_0757Last year Linda, a friend from school, and I went on a road trip taking a southern loop that took us down through Oregon, California, across to Phoenix, then up to Vegas via an old ghost town, Oatman. This year we decided to take a northern loop. We didn’t think anything could top last year but this one measured up.

This year we went across Washington, Idaho, Montana. Dropped down through Yellow Stone National Park, then into Salt Lake City, across to Reno and up to Bend Oregon. We tried to time the trip so we wouldn’t risk snow in Yellow Stone and miss the hot weather in Utah and Nevada. We didn’t do that. The weather was perfect until Salt Lake City where we hit almost 100 and held that heat until we were on the last day of the trip. Yikes!!!!

Weather doesn’t deter us from having a great time and we adjusted using shade and A/C. The first night we spent in Kellogg Idaho at a B&B. This is the third one I’ve stayed at, Linda’s first. LeMaison Sur Le Hill is five stars plus. I still need to do a review because I would so recommend staying here. It can’t get better. We arrived there around four o’clock and were greeted with fruit, cheese and wine on the patio. The gardens were … I can’t say enough. I tried to take pictures but they don’t do it justice. Our hosts took time to sit and visit with us making the experience even better. 68305856We stayed in the garden room but saw the other suites and there isn’t one that isn’t fantastic. Susan is an artist and it shows in the décor. Here is the link if you’d like to see pictures and read the reviews.

There is a great restaurant next to LeMaison Sur Le Hill with a fantastic menu. Before dinner we walked around town. As you can see from the picture Kellogg isn’t a bustling metropolis at least not on this side of town. But then it was Sunday evening.

I’ll try to write about more of the trip in future posts, we saw to much for just one. Next year…. Ummm something to think about.
