Rollin' Through Eastern Oregon and Washington

This has to be one of my favorite photos. Not really thinking about anything except having to piss so damn bad I finally found a spot to pull over on the side of the road. Was able to brush my teeth, swig some water and eat a power bar while admiring the view of the Columbia river right before it cuts north into Washington.

I highly recommend trying out highway 730 if you are driving through eastern Oregon. Traffic is not too heavy as its off interstate 84 and follows right beside the river for quite a few miles before heading up out of the river valley. Follow 730 right up to the junction of highway 12 and go east into Washington wine country of Walla Walla, a beautiful ride for sure.
