Trundling toward the burn

Very windy in the Columbia gorge.  Mark said these windmills are a source of hope for the humans 
Wheat grain elevators north of Condon.  First wheat harvested here in the late 1800s from high desert
 Old barn on the way to Fossil.
We found out these are around 50 million years old.  In fact, we found out that some Americans believe the earth is older than 6,000 years. Old sycamore leaves from when Eastern Oregon was a tropical climate similar to Panama today.
 Our first Burner siting.  We are for sure now on the path to the burn...
   On the Deschutes River at the old mill site where there are fancy shopping malls and eateries in Bend
Life in good trundling with the Toyota Motorhome, the weather has "switched" a bit into autumn already.  We had to find our warm clothes to take the chill out of the air.  The day before it had been into the 80s at night friends said over the best gelato in Bend.  To the Burn!
