More of my Oregon adventures

Our oldest was involved in a book contest that sent her and her group to a regional competition.  Eager to watch, it forced us to explore areas that I hadn’t before.  It was time to enter the realm of Eastern Oregon.  I have gone to Hermiston a few times, but that was the extent of Eastern Oregon for me.  This time, we took the long trip to La Grande.  What a grand and pretty place it was too.  I got to see two of my favorite things in nature… trees and snow.  There were some very pretty old houses, the kind that I tend to gravitate towards.  One of my favorite things in that city were the city buses.  What a kick they were, designed to look like old trolleys. 

Unfortunately, we couldn’t explore Pendleton as I would have liked since we tried to beat the school bus home.  Our kiddo didn’t want to have a boring ride home with the family, she much rather ride home with her friends.  Maybe sometime I will crawl out of my protective hole and visit the historically rich city and their woollen mills and interpretive museums.  Besides, we were all exhausted, having to get up at 5:30 in the morning to make the long trip east. 

So, here are just a couple pictures of my day adventure:

I think that all city buses should look like this bus.  I think I will petition that to at least the Governor.
