    Day 18 - Eastward Bound

    September 25, 2016 in the United States

    It's time to wave goodbye to the Pacific West and get ready for the Mid-West ahead. Set those clocks, we're passing a time zone!

    The day started at the diner chain IHOP. We both ordered the combo breakfast and Alice had pancakes with hers, and as we were in the International House of Pancakes I thought I'd check that assertion with an order or crepes. I also prefer crepes. The food was tasty, quick and cheap with unlimited coffee at hand. What more could you want?

    Then it was time to hit the road. It was an eight hour drive today that would result in two statelines being crossed. There was a lot more to see of Washington, although it wasn't as Evergreen as the state slogan suggests. Autumn waits for no state slogan! It was beautiful however. We then crossed Idaho, or if you were to think of Idaho as a hand with a forefinger pointing to the sky, we drove across the finger. We saw a whole hour of Idaho and then we were in Montana. Montana comes from the Spanish meaning 'the mountainous one'. The Spanish were definitely on to something! A multitude of mountains with varying terrains greeted us the moment we crossed the state line. It was a pleasant and scenic drive as we approached our motel for the night. Tomorrow, more roads and mountains as we aim for Yellowstone.

    Song of the Day:

    Pulaski Tunnel Trail and Wallace, ID

    May 22, 2017 in the United States

    Hiked Pulaski Tunnel trail in the morning. The trail followed a river up to the tunnel. There were lots of trillium flowers blooming along the trail.
    In 1910 firefighters survived a terrible fire by getting inside a mining tunnel.
    Had lunch in Wallace, then visited the bordello museum and historic railroad depot museum.

    Hotel:

    We hit the road for another long drive. 10 hours ahead of us to Seattle,WA. We had our Marriott breakfast and got an 8:30 start. We passed time listening to our book, "Lion". It is so good. The kids even keep telling us to turn it back on. Amazing story.

    We made a stop in a little town called Wallace, Idaho. It was an unexpectedly cute little historic town nestled within the mountains. You could sense the history of the buildings disguised in a cloak of present day like True Value Hardware and artsy boutiques. We ate at the Smokehouse BBQ and Saloon. There you could feel the ghosts of the past within the walls and at the saloon bar top. The walls were covered in a confusion of current day memorabilia and the fading antiquities of long ago. There was no air conditioning on in the restaurant which disappointed our bodies coming in from the 90 degrees outside adding to the feeling of what this place was like a hundred years ago. It was tolerable and not really that uncomfortable. Just disappointing. We decided to try the pulled brisket, half chicken, rib combo and mac and cheese. When the waitress asked us what we'd like to order, we were thrown from a 1890 saloon to a Turkish bath. We know all the waitresses were Turkish because we asked. It was the weirdest twilight zone place. They were exchange students from Turkey for the summer. They hardly spoke English and stood behind this 1890s bar speaking Turkish. Just a little strange. Actually, the food was really good. I had pulled pork. If it's on the menu, I usually order it. Very interesting side stop.
