OR/WA Trip 2013 - Day 3

Sunday, March 10 ~ Day 3 of Our Trip
Jerome, ID to Clackamas, OR

After a much needed nights rest we were up about 6:45, got ready for the day, packed up all our stuff and then headed over to breakfast at the hotel.  We like to stay at Best Western's because most of them include breakfast in their rates which helps to offset our costs.

Breakfast included an omelet, mini-Belgium waffles, sausage, biscuits & gravy, orange & apple juice and coffee.  It was pretty good though the gravy could have been a little hotter.

We got on the road about 8:30 a.m. and made our way from one side of the state to the other.  The weather was overcast for most of the day but the sun did peak out at times.  Here are a few things we saw along the way.
