We stayed the night at Wal-Mart (parking lot, not in the store) in Grants Pass, OR. We thought we would rest up before tackling what were supposed to be the tough climbs. As mentioned above, the climbs didn't amount to much compared to driving from Phoenix to Flagstaff or Phoenix to Payson.
As we got to the flat lands in Oregon we were excited to find ourselves driving through the Grass Seed Capital of the world. I'm glad they had the sign so we didn't wonder why so much land was just allowed to be over grown with grass. You can tell it is an "organized" grass rather than just purely wild. My itchy eyes and sneezing don't let me forget we are in the grass wonderland.
Our RV Park is just northeast of Salem on the edge of Silverton. This area has blueberries and other fruit (in addition to the grass) for crops. Silverton is a neat little old town that sits on the 45th Parallel. We'll stop and take a walk around some time this week now that our quick drive through looked interesting.
