We were in place before noon and got all set up. The campground was fine - it had asphalt hardstands with water and electric and 50 amp power. It is still hot in this part of the country in the low 90's.
The biggest issue for us was lack of cell phone or internet coverage. I had to go 10 miles down the road to check in a couple of days for work. Since I support a group on the East Coast, I had to be up early and get to the combined Petro Truck Stop/McDonalds for my 8:00 A.M. Eastern DST telecon!
We were glad to be able to get DirecTV for the start of the PGA Championship. And to see a MLB baseball game or two in the evening.
During our two days there we made it over to the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center. That was a great one! It was one of the best we have seen in a while. Definitely worth going to.
Then the handler came out with three birds. It was really something. And she knew her stuff. She has been at it over 20 years. She talked about their habitat and was a steady stream of facts.
She took each one from the cage and held them, gave them a treat, and then put them on a perch while she got another one out. One was a Red-tail hawk, another was an owl and I forget what the third one was.
Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles! Until next time...
