Sunrise in Shaniko

Early morning dawn ...
Early morning dawn …

Spent the evening at Bob’s Texas T-Bone in Rufus … in the midst of a bevy of big trucks. Bob’s is a family run operation, and from the number of trucks around, the food must be great! We arrived late, so we’ll be stopping to eat here on the return trip! Rising early, we climbed to the high plateau next to the mighty Columbia. Gotta love the dawn at 3350 feet up!

Too early for the cafe as well ...

Dawn in the desert … sunrise in Shaniko … time to reflect about travels, etc. Life is very good as a traveling tortuga.
