Road Trip -2005


Due to personal circumstances, I was unable to travel with Doreen in 2004. So by spring of 2005, I was chomping at the bit to hit the road. Winter doldrums were still lingering as our Alberta weather was not cooperating and it was overcast and rainy. So I was ready, boy was I ready to head for the sun.

We had toured the east, deep south, midwest and southwestern states, so we felt it was time for an ocean view. This year our travels would take us west into British Columbia before turning south to Washington and Oregon. We actually planned the first leg of the trip along the Oregon coast but after that it would be wherever the turns in the road took us. And somehow we knew it would eventually lead us to our favourite Hwy 261. Driving up and down this scary little road had now become a tradition for us. It just wouldn't be a holiday if we didn't make it to Red Rock country.
