We Continue Weakly On

Up and out early again this morning. We didn't make much headway yesterday as we left from Redding CA, and only made it as far as Cottage Grove OR.

I slept from about 1:45 until 4:00 and then went to sleep again at 8:30 until 5 this a.m. I am determined to kick this cold back to the nether regions of hell from whence it came.
Patsy has been very solicitous of my condition and has been reminding me frequently to take the cold meds, which help but only for a few hours at a time.

I have been taking the equivalent of Day-Quil, Ny-Quil, Afternoon-Quil and Early Evening Quil. Still we soldier on.

One of the few pictures I took today was of Multnomah Falls. This is an oft photographed spot on the Columbia River Scenic Highway.

Although there is a Lodge at the base of the falls and a gift shop, I chose not to take the walk to investigate further. 

We stopped in the town of Hood River to pick up a few bagels. My darling made Cream Cheese and Ham sandwiches on the trunk lid of the car and we ate them with gusto as we motored along, unsure of how far we would make it during the day.

As it turns out, we made it to Kennewick WA.  a distance of 338 miles from our point of departure this a.m. Tomorrow we will be back in Canada.

Thanks for coming along for the ride, we would have made a bagel for you had you been here in person. They were delicious.

Multnomah Falls is always a welcome sight.

The walk to the top (although paved) is a heck of a climb.

Hope you are feeling better. Are you headed to Penticton?
