the Oregon Trail!
I do need to et a back up charging system...I can charge all day while I drive but only 2 items SO I have to choose...SO this post may or may not make the finals. Im still doing my PNW tour...finally made it to Oregon...A new state for me and I was so excited I added it to the natl map tonight!
My fist stop in Oregon was the Oregon Trails Interpretive Center! Its not far from Baker City they take the O.T. very seriously there...
The Intrepetive Center is quite large...I was not happy with the modern building design tho..
I was expecting a rustic log look but it was very posh instead..
and you can get a stamp in your passport book for visiting...I am not fond of stuffing animals and most of the exhibits had some so I kinda Skipped along and found some interesting things...like this typical bed they had in the wagons for once they arrived, the ones that survived that is over 50,000 immigrants came west via the Oregon Trail..
Here is the route of the trail...called the Garden of the World.
they traded with the Indians along the way...
And here is a replica of one of the wagons...
I like this hand forged hardware...
it provided a great view of the way ahead!
I loved this quilt on display I didnt get the name but it was a fund raiser quilt I believe...
AND I loved this amazing rock on the grounds...the color of the lichen is WOW!
Got my 51 cent pressed penny!
on the way out of the area I saw 2 of these guys in a field they started a rapid retreat but I got one photo
