Four More States Closer

We passed thru Utah rather quickly.
Stopped at the Elk's Lodge in Provo and had a view of snow on the mountains.
Along the way Bob enjoyed these flowering trees.
 We enjoyed the views of mountains and lakes along the way.

We spent one night at an Elk's Lodge in Roy, UT. So noisy we left at 7:30 am. We drove until we go to Snake River Elk's Lodge above Twin Falls, ID. We knew it would be quiet there as we have stayed there before. It is on a golf course and everyone knows there isn't any golf after dark.

Kim and Travis welcomed us for the Kentucky Derby Party. 
The ladies all wore fancy hats.

 We stayed two nights. Went into town to visit with Becky and Lonnie. They took us to Elevation 486 restaurant and had a great view of the gorge and great food.
Afterwards we went geocaching and sightseeing.

After Mother's Day breakfast brunch at the lodge we took off heading to the Tri-Cites area. We stopped for the night at the Wild Horse Casino at Pendleton, OR. Our friends, Jim and Kathy Cooper from KOFA in Yuma stopped by briefly. Afterwards we went in and won a little money.

The next morning we went in for breakfast and to win a little more money before heading to Kennewick Elk's Lodge in Washington. We had a lot of errands to do while here. Went to the Verizon store and set up our phones and wifi for Canadian usage. To the bank to get cash for the trip and some Canadian money too. Stopped at some other stores to stock up before meeting with Dee Turner for "Linner" at Applebee's
 The next morning it was breakfast with Jenny and Dan Sheppard.

We went and got a couple of geocaches afterwards. Then it was back on the road heading north. We stopped at another Elk's Lodge in Moses Lake, WA and went in to give our donation. They were having a tamale dinner so we partook of that.
 Then the next day after geocaching we met Felix and Minnie for hamburger day at the American Legion.

We continued north the next day. Enjoyed the scenery along the way.
This looks like a cross.

We had intentions of staying at the Moose Lodge in Grand Coulee. After taking the car off and moving the MH to the parking area we decided we really didn't like it. We took the car and checked out the Spring Canyon National Park campground. 

Our view.
The Dam was in view and pretty at night when lite up.

We absolutely loved it and we spent 4 days and nights relaxing, reading and visiting with Dave and Amy from the Seattle area. 
It was hard to move on but move on we did. There will be NO pictures of this campsite. It's Walmart in Omak, WA. We had planned on staying at the Elk's but they only allow weekend camping. We checked out the city park but they wanted $30 a night. Of course, we spent that in Walmart.
