Depoe Bay City Park Trail

This park is within walking distance of where we are staying.

Tree looks like it is in a pot, but is in an old tree stump.

Will have to click photo to be able to read it.

This is the trail.  Not as long as we would like it to be, but great for hiking on Saturday and Sunday when the traffic is crazy on the 101. Still a lot of traffic on weekdays, but worse on the weekends.

Will have to click on photo to read what it says.

The trail.  Very easy most of the way.

Click on photo to make it big enough to read.

Nice sized picnic table. 

Water had an iron tint to it

Bridge over the water.

Love being in the green over the desert.

JoAnn being funny with Foxglove plant.

Interesting table.  Think of the people who had to carry this out here.

We think this is a Blue Heron.  If you think otherwise post it in the comment section so we can change it.   

Our first sighting of a slug!!  Aren't you excited?  JoAnn put her lip blum down next to it for size reference. 

Up the stairs.

More stairs.  Comes out on Indian Street and we can walk along the road back to where we are staying.

Summer 2019

Car loaded up and headed out July 12.  Planned to leave the end of May, but I (Nolan) had some health issues and we had to leave later. 

Lost Wages, NV.  Raining.  Automatic windshield wipers is something we have never had on a vehicle before.  Kind of interesting.

Leaving Las Vegas.   Was nice to drive on the HOV lane.  A lot faster.

BMW 3i Electric car.  Pretty cool, except the price.  

Out of the city and into the country.  Way better. 

Atomic Inn in Beatty, NV.  The front looks like a regular motel, but has these other buildings in the back.  Reminded us of Army barracks.

Four motel rooms per building.  Was 100 degrees outside, went into the room and the a/c wasn't on.  They knew we were coming, so would have been nice to have the a/c on when we got there.  Took almost five hours of the a/c being on to be comfortable in the room for sleeping. 

Not sure what mountain range this was.

Coming into Reno, NV.  Lots of shipping buildings.  This is only one, there are two more the same size behind this one. 

On Highway 395, thirty miles out of Reno in California, the traffic came to a stand still.  Was able to move up once in a while a few car lengths. This biker thought he was "special." 

Fifty minutes later came around a corner and saw this helicopter. 

Saw lots of fire trucks and CHP vehicles.  What was a fire on both sides of the highway.  

Still working on a lot of hot spots.  Once through, the vehicles waiting on the oncoming traffic lane were almost three miles long.   

Eagle Lake.  Nice area. 

Located in Bieber, CA.  The windows were open in our room.  Was nice and cool outside.  Motel room needed some deep cleaning.  Nice eatery across the street called The Old Mill Grill. 

Mt. Shasta.

With the car get six months of "free" XM Radio.  In the trees and hills lost the signal.  Had to turn the radio off.  

Love the green!!!

Made it to where we will be staying in Depoe Bay, Oregon.  A little closer to the 101 then we want to be, but all we could find for the price we wanted to pay.  No traffic at this photo, but it is loud when vehicles do go by.
