Father and Son Ride East to Idaho on the Oregon Trail!

Friday, July 26th and we’re on the road again, headed east to Idaho!

11 am and the temperature is climbing quickly. Gonna be a hot one today I think!

Zoomin!

The Central Oregon Highway has got some nice curves east of Burns-

As well as long stretches that are dead straight-

Modest living out here-

It gets drier and hotter the further east we go-

Drinkwater Pass, elevation 4212″

Now we’re into some rolling hills and the road is more interesting-

An “Oasis” in the middle of nowhere

Gorgeous road and completely deserted!

Following the Malheur River-

Hotter and hotter! 99ᵒ degrees Fahrenheit (about 38ᵒ C)

102!

At least it’s a dry heat, and the views remain spectacular-

31 miles to Idaho!

Huge harvester!

Big agriculture around here-

Approaching the town of Vale, Oregon-

Welcome to Vale!

Lunch at a fantastic Mexican joint on A Street-

If you’re passing through Vale, Oregon, Chavelitas Mexican Restaurant has got some awesome grub!
