Going back - we started out from Boise today. The day got off to a difficult start. I was slicing apples for oatmeal with a very sharp knife and inadvertantly sliced the tip of my left ring finger. Ouch! Fortunately we found some Band-Aids and ointment and with Ellen's help, I got it bandaged up. Just before that happened I got this nice shot of Ellen, Mimi, Christian Petrach (our host) and Ella and Fritz on the back steps.
Today's trip took us across Oregon. It was a beautiful, cool day and the scenery was gorgeous. In addition to the stop at John Day Painted Hills, we had a little picnic out of our food box at Unity Lake State Park, and for supper stopped in Sisters, OR at a favorite ice cream place, which also has food. Mimi had a cheeseburger and Ellen and I both had fishburgers.

We got to Salem - at the home of our friend JoAnne Elizabeth Seibert - at about 10pm. A welcome haven after a long, but good, day of travel. When I unwrapped my finger, it looked ok. The air in the bedroom was fresh and cool - promising a good night's sleep.
