We had to leave our beautiful ranch and return to the valley for a few weeks. Our neighbors are watching the place and taking care of the garden for us. We drove down this trip so we could tow back our new vehicle (more about that later). The way we travel it is a two day trip; through Washington and Oregon in one day. Spend the night in Medford and drive the rest of the way back to hot, dusty Bakersfield the next day.
In Oregon we saw a lot of these three trailer semis. They are really long! We don’t see those in Washington or California – maybe that is only allowed in Oregon?
We drove past Lake Shasta and were surprised at how low the water level is.
Rick remembers this being about the water level at the end of August – not the first of June!
The most resourceful thing we saw on the trip was in Northern California.
Someone planted and harvested a crop in the median of I-5
Bales of straw neatly stacked in the middle of the interstate. I wouldn’t want to be the one trying to get across the road and all that traffic to move it.
We had a safe trip back and are taking care of business here for a while before we return to Washington.
