Weekend Travel-log

We had a GREAT long weekend. We went to the Columbia River Gorge to see Nickleback. ..... with 22,000 close friends. It was 82 degrees, no wind. Just a beautiful relaxing time.
yep, pretty crowded.
Afterwards we stayed at the Rhoades BED&BREADFAST (homemade apricot bread to take home, yum yum) They also fixed us a WONDERFUL dinner... so we didn't have to buy any of the overpriced food at the concert (another plus). After our stay in Ephrata and visiting (a little) we were off to see the country side, Northern Washington.... but I'll have to say I didn't get ANY pictures of the miles and miles and hours and hours of driving thru the apple orchards!
Beautiful scenery...
and just look at the wildlife!
More wildlife. We figure the deer must know it is NOT hunding season. We saw and almost ran into more deer than you could imagine. Most fields held at least 25 dear, mile after mile. They are smart, eat while they can't shoot you!!
and beautiful scenic vistas. Washington is a beautiful tree laden state.

Looks like a lot of fun! The natural amphitheater looked great too.
