The first thing on the agenda was to top off the truck with more coolant.
It was low after the thermostat replacement project the night before.
And then we hit the road....
....headed for Mr. Adams' other brother Stan's house in Christmas Valley, Oregon where we were able to catch up with numerous friends and relatives.
Check out Stan's gigantic woodstove that he built in his shop....
It's taller than Mr. Adams! Adams' always do things in a big way.
And then we were off again....down the road to Fort Rock.
In Fort Rock there is a nice little collection of old buildings that were salvaged for museum purposes. The perfect setting for a photo shoot. Check out these beautiful photos that Mr. Adams took for me. Some in color....
And then we were back on the road again...and as we headed out of the valley toward Bend the landscape changed dramatically with the sudden addition of lots of tall Pine trees.
It was another hot day, so the shade from the trees felt really nice. In Bend we had dinner with Mr. Adams' Mom, Duella and her husband, Gary.
And then, finally, we headed over the Cascade Mountain Range for the Willamette Valley where we stopped for the night Creswell. Even though were not able to stay in any one spot today for very long, we had a lot of fun and were glad that we could see so many people.
