Travel Log : Day 9 - Idaho & OREGON!!

Honestly, Idaho was a blur. As soon as Kevin mentioned that we would be crossing the border to Oregon by early evening my brain lost all focus. I was so caught up in the thought that it would only be 2 more days until the end of the Oregon Trail that I didn't even think of taking any pictures until this one...



It was hidden by trees on a bridge and we almost missed it. Kevin stopped the van 1/4 of a mile away and I ran back to it as giddy as a school girl. What a sight that must have been for the passers by! Did I care, though? Of course not! We were finally in Oregon.

Our frontiersman (He bought the hat just for this trip!)

Wake up, wake up! Here we are!
Yes, we had a quick change of clothes. You can also see my WIP on the dashboard of the van. Look at that! I DID do a WIP Wednesday post ;)



The silver moon spilling it's light over the valley by our hotel making all things quietly beautiful.

Almost there! Happy trails!!
