6 Hours of sitting on my butt

Aunt said she wanted to do something this weekend, so we drove for 200 miles, 6 hours....

She paid for fuel...

Once we got over the mountains it was pretty clear...

But this is really more of a pic thread... LOL



Idk what bird this is, but they were cool, and everywhere...


We spend like 20 minutes on the side of the road trying to figure out what this thing is for... A sheriff even pulled over to see if we needed help, and he didn't know what it was either. LOL




Flying J Truck, awesome


WTF is this park, LOL?


My baby got dirty! (We are going back when it rains hoping the mud is a little better) On the way home we got off at a exit a few miles from home, and their were some big puddles, cleaned up pretty good, not to mention the 20ft bow splash. XD



204.5 Miles, 11.9 Gallons, $2.99/gallon, 17.1 MPG, $35/fuel, $31/Lunch = $66

The bird - Looks like a magpie to me, squakin' little things, annoying as heck when your trying to enjoy the outdoors, IMO (they do look pretty cool though)

The other "thing" you're unsure of - It looks like an old log flume to me. Might be something completly else though


Looks like a fun trip in all though

Well I have spent 10 minutes looking at this photo and can't figure out WTF it is also...LOL The only thing I can come up with is its a water shoot of some type...maybe some of it is missing. The only other thing is a thing-a-ma-gig.

I think the bird may be a phionex....maybe, I really don't know this either...lol

Great photos...thanks for posting.

Oh...I like the Junk Yard...or is this a RV park...

It looks like a log flume, there are a few along the Columbia River Gorge on the Washington side, you can see them along I-84.

Possibly, I was thinking it would be a fun summer water park ride.... Except the park where there is like 20 ft missing... JUMP!
