Today is day 14 of the trip titled August 08 - Escape Reno Summer.

I drove 126 miles today, for a total of 1508 miles so far.

I started the day at Red Rose Motel. I ended the day at Confluence Campground.

Here is a short description of the day:
0825 Mo day 13
wander, wander. First good call was taking this Yakima Canyon cutoff, which was thirty miles of lovely volcanic canyon, with four BLM campgrounds that I want to come back to someday. Got to see an osprey snag a trout out of the river just like on the Nature Channel.
That worked so well that I make a second, less good call to take a similar cutoff north to Wenatchee, but it got me to the Confluence Campground, so it all worked out.
Here is a short description of the evening:

expensive but deluxe, with hookups. very nice hike over to the wildlife preserve, near downtown
