La Grande, Oregon
Mrs. Phred wants to see the Hell's Canyon scenic loop here in eastern Oregon. We checked into the Eagle Hot Lake RV Park and will take the Toyota on the 200 mile loop in the morning.
The drive here along the north bank of the Columbia River was very scenic.
We've struck out with booking raft trips so far. It's hot, hot hot and all the rivers and lakes are full of Oregonians looking for relief from the record temperatures. It kind of reminds me of the summer we visited London. Our hotel didn't have air-conditioning although it was very hot. Up here most of the homes are also not air conditioned.
We are warned to run the water here for several minutes to blow out the earwigs. I saw an earwig when I disconnected the water at the last place. My ear feels itchy. Maybe an earwig crawled in last night. They lay eggs in your ear that burrow into your brain to lay eggs..then the larvae eat their way out again...
