|A family member in disguise|
Day 10 - We prepare to leave for the return journey - As we pack and load - we impress 4 grown men, who will be getting on a plane within 24 hours, with our trunk tie-down expertise. We spend a quick afternoon in Seattle at Pike's Place Market and then head for Oregon. We arrive at our lodging destination around 11:00 pm. Upon pulling into the hotel that happens to be sandwiched between the tombstone factory and the railroad tracks, I determine that my red neck vacation has come to an end and I am upgrading to the Best Western. My decision was completely confirmed when I walked into the front office to cancel my reservation and was greeted by a character from the set of Criminal Minds. It is now 2:00 a.m. I am winding down. We are determined to take the road less traveled (only figuratively) we set out tomorrow for a trek through the canyonlands as we head back home.
So far, this trip has been more than I expected and less complicated than imagined. For now that is a good start.
