It was sad to leave Oregon because we were leaving family and we had such a great time visiting with them. We also noticed that Johnathan did not have quite the amount of behavioral difficulties as he usually does. BUT, it was time to begin our cross country trip.
We followed along the Columbia River from Portland until we started heading southeast in Boardman. Some of the views were absolutely captivating.
I did not realize, however, that not all of Oregon is green and lush. In fact, some parts reminded me of southern California. Once crossing the Oregon-Idaho border we entered into Mountain Time Zone.
We stopped for the night at a KOA in Meridian, Idaho that has full hook-ups so we could run the air conditioner. They were very accommodating considering we didn't have a reservation and the charge was only $33 for the night. This particular KOA must be a popular overnight stop because the RV sites were not spacious at all. In fact, we were backed up to another rig. They also advertise free wifi but after 45 minutes of trying to connect, I gave up. However, we slept very well and were ready for more traveling the next morning.
Next stop: Yellowstone National Park
