Day 50--Day 2 of the Long Drive Home...Some Music to End the Day

This will be a very short post. We drove from Salt Lake to Pendleton. Funny, the amount of hours spent driving was similar to a long day in the saddle, but we came so much farther! Go figure. We hit rain coming over the Blue Mountains. Here was the view coming down.
We were joking that as we came into the clouds below, it was like coming into SeaTac. "Okay ladies and gentlemen, we've begun our descent, and the Captain has turned on the fasten seat belt sign. We may experience a little turbulence as we pass through the cloud cover. We'll have you on the ground in no time." And, later..."Please remain seated until the Captain has turned off the fasten seat belt sign. Welcome to the bottom of the hill, and thank you for choosing U-Haul."

We rolled into Pendleton in the rain. We had planned to camp, but decided to hotel it instead. We are at the Howard Johnson. It's pretty cheap compared to the other hotels we've stayed in.

For dinner we went to a place called Great Pacific. It's the hoppin' place to be on a Friday night in Pendleton. There was live music tonight. Ezza Rose Band opened for Yaquina Bay. Connor and I like Yaquina Bay better, but Derik liked Ezza Rose (to dark and depressing for my tastes). 
This is Yaquina Bay. Notice two gals on violins! They needed to be louder. 

Tomorrow we should be home.
