Where I stayed
Tall Timbers Motel

Saturday, September 8, 2012

We got up about 8:30 and went to breakfast.  Erin and Larry had Cheddarwurst with scrambled eggs, hashbrowns and toast.  I had a ham and cheese omelet with hashbrowns and toast.  When the plates came I wondered if they were used to feeding lumberjacks or something.  Everything was really good especially the wheat toast that seemed to be homemade bread. 

Since I wasn't feeling well, Larry and Erin postponed leaving to see if I would feel better.  They waited over an hour but it wasn't wasted time.  We watched the OSU/Central Florida football game.  They left after the last score in the game.  So it was 31 to 10 when they left.  I did not feel better so I stayed behind and read the book I got from the General Store in Goldendale.  It was "Angels Fall" by Nora Roberts and took place in Wyoming in Jackson Hole.  I didn't even leave the cabin all day.  I just read and watched HGTV.

Erin and Larry drove back south on 25 and took the road to Windy Ridge which was closed 11 miles from the end.  Along Windy Ridge road they stopped at the viewpoints and drove to where it was closed.  They took a hike to Norway Pass and then Bear Pass a total of 7 miles roundtrip.  They saw lots of huckleberries and huckleberry pickers.  From Norway Pass they could see a great view of Spirit Lake and Mt. St. Helens but it was even better from Bear Pass.  In addition they could see Mt. Adams, Mt. Ranier and Mt. Hood.  They ate their lunch at Bear Pass and while they were there they could see rain coming from the direction of Mt. St. Helens.  So they packed up and headed back but they only ever got sprinkled on.  They got back to the car a little after 5:00 and left a little after 5:30 and got back to the cabin after 6:30.  They were starving as they hadn't taken much for lunch because of the big breakfast. 

I was feeling better so we headed to the restaurant for supper.  We all got burgers.  Larry got the Mt. St. Helens Burger. Erin got the bacon, mushroom, swiss, onion burger minus the bacon and onions.  I got a Western burger with grilled chicken instead of beef.  The burgers were great but I ended up eating mine with a knife and fork as it was so messy.  Larry and Erin had beer.  Larry had a Lost Coast Tangerine and Erin had Dick's Danger Ale.  After the first round they both drank Dick's Danger Ale.  It took  over an hour to get our orders so we didn't finish eating until almost 8:00.  Erin went to bed early and Larry wasn't far behind.  I got stomach cramps back again and didn't go to bed until after 2:00 in the morning.
