After a round of thunderstorms the night before, we woke up to a mostly cloudy, yet dry morn on Sunday. I wanna say we left Jeremy's around 10:30am. I replaced the 24oz Coors Light can with a "custom", mushroom can heat dissipator. Worked pretty damn well!



Jeremy and his daughter Sam on my trusty steed.


US395 over the Columbia into Pasco, WA


Rollin' through the vineyards east of Pasco. HWY124 Aside for the Ontairo-Payette area, this was as lame as the scenery got.



It wasn't long before we got into the rolling hills of SE Washington. HWY124





The highest point we crossed in SE Washington.



Interesting facts at Alpowa





Looking back toward the way we came. Got some sprinkles but, nothing big.


Out of boring SE Washington...Thank god!



The highlight of our trip in Lewiston, ID...

Just kidding!

The skies above Lewiston were getting mighty dark after lunch. We thought it may be a good idea to get a move on. As we rolled further into Idaho, it was pretty warm and the skies became relatively friendly. From Lewiston, HWY 12 got progressively prettier and curvier!

Not sure on the specifics but, here are shots from Lewiston to Kooskia, ID




Must have been going to a VW Thing convention...







On a break outside Kooskia, we see this dank mass of moisture dropping in the direction we were heading. "Should we put on our rain gear? NAW!"


We got a little wet along the way, but not too bad. Here are some shots from the interior portions of Idaho.





See a trend here? The scenery slowly gets more and more appealing!

To be continued...
