August 25 - Pendleton, Oregon

After four days at the Wenatchee River County Park in Monitor, it was time to leave the Wenatchee area and point the rig towards home. We decided we really likes the Park, even with the sound of trains from the track across the river. Shady, super clean, and a much better deal than the state park.

Our route took us down the Columbia River gorge past orchards

and sometimes right along the river.

As we approached Richland, Washington, we passed through the Hanford Reservation, famous for its part in development of the atomic bomb and for challenges with the clean-up.

Our destination for the day was Pendleton, Oregon with an initial stop at the woolen mill outlet store. We didn't get out empty handed, but her shirt does look nice.

We decided it was too warm for Walmart and the free RV parking in front of the Wildhorse Resort, so we're parked in their RV park where a 30 amp full hook-up with Good Sam discount was just over $20 complete with a view of harvested wheat fields and the rolling hills of Eastern Oregon out the back window.


  1. Loved looking at the gorge pictures. We are missing Oregon and the cool breezes, fresh fruit.

    Too hot for us also at Walmart last night. Taking advantage of the internet at High Plains RV in western Kansas.
    Safe travels!

    1. It's so nice to come through here in fruit season! Was warm last night but cooled down to a wonderful 55 degrees this morning. Hope you have wonderful travel home.
