One thing I have discovered is that if you travel the same route over and over it seems shorter each time. It didn't seem like 600 miles this time. Every mile was uneventful. We stopped at 3 casino's, 1-each night. Our one high light of the trip was in Reedsport, Oregon. We got to watch the draw bridge turn to allow a fishing vessel through. Cookie jumped out and snapped a bunch of pictures.
While coming through the Siskyou mountains the clouds were rolling over the mountains. We tried to capture in picture through a bug splattered windshield.
