    Die blühende Wüste

    September 27 in the United States

    Unberührte Natur nur der Hiyhway streckt sich bis zum Horizont. Hier und da schlängelt sich ein Fluss aber dieser schafft es nie die unmittelbare Umgebung mit Wasser zu versorgen doch nach etlichen Kilometern kommt der Mensch und man sieht den tiefen Einschnitt in der Natur, wo zuvor Steppe war wächst Hopfen und Wein, dies wir leider auf dem Rücken der Natur austragen.Die Flüsse wirkten als wären sie mit einem Film von Algen belegt und wachsen in Massen.
    Doch die sanft wirkenden Hügel und die Hitze lenke etwas von diesem Eingriff ab.
    Und plötzlich hinter einem Berg erstrahlt plötzlich die Landschaft mit ihrer Vegetation und raubt einem den Atem.

    Way to Seattle

    September 12, 2015 in the United States

    Nach dem Yellowstone machen wir uns auf den 1300 km langen Weg Richtung Seattle. In der ersten Nacht stehen wir an einem See mit einem atemberaubenden Sonnenuntergang. Haken an der Sache ist, dass es unglaublich viele Moskitos gibt und mir dann das Wäsche aufhängen im Dunkeln besonders viel Spaß macht.
    Am zweiten Abend entscheiden wir uns dazu, noch 3 h zu fahren wenn Elli schläft, um Strecke zu machen. So können wir die letzten Tage dann noch gemütlich am Mount Rainier ausklingen lassen. Den hatten wir am Anfang ausgelassen da es uns zu viel Fahrerei war. Dazu später mehr.
    Letzter Stopp vor dem Mount Rainier ist ein super schöner State Park direkt an einem Stausee des Columbia River. Der Platz ist eine Oase inmitten einer Steinwüste und wir wollen zuerst weiterfahren, da er unverschämt teuer ist. Zwecks Alternativlosigkeit bleiben wir dann aber doch und Elli tobt im Gras und am nächsten Tag am See herum, was sie sich nach der Fahrererei auch verdient hat.

    Onward to Seattle

    October 10, 2017 in the United States

    After two overnight stops we made it to Washington, about an hour outside of Seattle. Again we made this reservation under the assumption it was centrally located but quickly realized everything was at least an hour drive. We had a lovely sunny day in Leavenworth, an authentic Bavarian village. Super charming and smelled delicious downtown from all the different vendors. The trip into Seattle was a little different. The traffic was ok but the whole area is laid out wonky, there is construction going on every other block, and the one way roads and hills just add to the pleasure. We managed to do Pike Place, REI, and the Fremont Troll in like 2 hours just so we could get the f#ck out of there. So Seattle is not really our thing but Washington state on the other hand might be.

    Gingko Petrified Forest State Park

    August 18, 2017 in the United States

    Wretched drive out of Seattle due to Friday traffic, LOTS of construction and truck drivers going 30 in a 70 and not putting on their flashers. Rather frustrating to say the least.

    We arrived in time to make dinner and it was SUPER WINDY!!! 💨 💨 💨 Gordie's tent is blowing away along with Patrick! A unique feature of this campsite is that we were able to see it from the road above as we drove to the entrance ⛺️.Read more

    First stop ... Ellensburg

    August 31, 2015 in the United States

    We picked up our wonderful housesitters, Natalia and Will, at the train at 10:30. We conducted a whirlwind reindoctrination to the house and a fun lunch where we caught up with each other. Picasso registered his nose-out-of-jointness by alternately running downstairs, coming back, running out of the house, coming back, and complaining just enough to be sure he had reminded Will and Natalia who was boss. At 1:30 we hopped in the geezer-mobile and headed for our first stop ... a quick hop over the mountains to Ellensburg.

    We stayed at a lovely KOA with a campsite right on the river. We took a minute to get off on the right foot with our fitness plan for the trip, doing a few planks, 1legged squats, before heading into town for dinner. Boy, did we luck out with a beautiful place called the Valley Cafe. Chicken chipotle corn chowder, full bodied and perfectly seasoned, fresh garden salad with toasted pepitas and basalmic vinaigrette. And as we were getting up to head out, we were undone by our crafty waitress who brought out the dessert tray. We opted to SPLIT the key lime pie. It was heavenly, and deserved to make it into our photos.

    We finished the evening with a stroll around the surprisingly historic and interesting Ellensburg downtown (see photo of H with friendly native), followed by another brisk stroll down by the river to make sure we reached our 10,000 step goal for the day.

    Soon showers and to bed after a MOST satisfying induction to our 2015 Southern Crawl.

    A few photos follow, as well as a link where we THINK you can take a look at our detailed route for the day. If it works, Gordon will be very proud. Please let him know!

    Your two geezers in paradise, Day One

    Ellensburg KOA

    April 19, 2016 in the United States

    Well, we made it.... We hope. We got a call from the fire alarm company saying that they had a fire alarm and had sent the fire department to the building. They said they would call me back and let me know if there's a problem, such as a fire. But no call yet, which I hope means good news.

    The Ellensburg KOA is lovely as usual. The cherry trees are in bloom and all the plants are bright green. The Yakima River is full and moving swiftly to the Columbia River.Read more

    Oh no! We were doing our final checks to go this morning and disaster! Something blew out the switch that regulates our cruise control forget about the backup lights. We had just gotten them fixed too.

    We are picking up coffee and bran muffins to give us strength to continue.
