Factory Tours in Colorado
Our family absolutely loves going on factory tours when we are on vacation. They are almost always free and it is so fun to see how things are made. Here are some of our favorites in Colorado:
Breitenbush Hot Springs (Oregon)
My husband and I recently had the opportunity to visit Breitenbush Hot Springs. The resort and conference center is high in the Oregon mountains, next to the Breitenbush River in. It is near Detroit Lake (Hwy 22) and about 90 minutes east of Salem, OR. We visited in late March but there was still snow on the ground and dusting the trees high on the hills. The road is unimproved and bumpy for the last 20 minutes of the drive and chains are required for much of the year.
Viewing the 2017 Solar Eclipse
On August, 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will be visible in the US, crossing the entire length of the country from coast to coast. Much of the country will have to travel to see totality and many are already making plans.
Emergency Bag for Car Trips
Every time my friend and I go on a trip in her car, we need something and don't have it. So today, I made a kit for all the stuff we have needed. It doesn't have everything, but it does have the things we have needed over the last few trips.
