Othello to Pasco, the convergence of the Snake & Columbia Rvrs.

More potholes

And many more potholes

Now we are seeing Buttes

A field of corn

We came across a dairy farm

Dairy Cattle

The sign said Asparagus was growing here

Maybe apple orchard

Yes, here are the crates waiting for them

Railroad tracks along the buttes


We crossed the Columbia several times as it wound southbound

We took our time in the morning since we just had a short drive today with a 2 o’clock check in.

We all took our walks before it got too hot, then I finished up to date on our Trip Journal, packed up for leaving and went to lunch next door at Mike's Place again.

As we were about to leave, realizing that the Tri Cities area was going to be 103°, Larry turned the generator on with all the A/C units going to keep the coach cool on the drive. Then he unplugged the shore power and we took off.

We soon realized that we had no A/C cooling and the generator was running. Larry called our dear and kind RV repair friend, Kevin, who said we need to reset the breaker on the generator. So we pulled over at the next rest area and reset it. We learn something new every day. The generator was up and running and we had a cooler ride in this 100°+ heat.

We arrived in Pasco at a nice Army Corp of Engineers camp with 50 amp electric, just no water (but our fresh water tank is full). After I returned from a trip to Albertson's for groceries, Larry went for a walk and found a better camp site along the river, so we moved. We had to pay a little more for this premium site, he paid $1.50 more (.50 cents per day). A Corp of Engineers park is Federal so with our "Golden Age" or Senior Pass that we bought many years ago, the already low price was half the normal price.

Daisy is loving the lush grass again, and watching the geese & trying to catch the red tailed squirrels that scamper up the trees when they see her.
