penticton to yakima, washington. day 8
we have headed south from penticton to yakima, washington, on
highway 97... a 527 km day. l remember none of this road from 1984, with
the odd exception of a couple of 'flashbacks'. no pictures exist of our
trip through the washington desert....way too hot at over 40c. we keep
going and camp outside of yakima on highway 12.
we find a nice campsite beside a mountain stream and head back 15 km into
naches, wa, for munchies. we end up with some snacks and a couple of
monstrous cans of 8% beer each....the locals instantly know we are from
canada. the rest of the night slides into oblivion....
we are up early to beat the heat and head
down hw 12 to mt st helens.
