After departing Hill AFB in Ogden we spent 2 nights at Gowen NG Base in Boise before arriving back in Redmond at Hope and Shawn's. We stayed at Gowen on our first journey in 2009. A good bargain at $10/nt with full hookups, concrete pads and only 8 spaces.

Doesn't seem possible that we left a year ago this month. When you are enjoying life, time passes quickly. We visited over 100 historic forts and markers. Visited with good friends and family and have a lot of good memories.
It is good to be back and spend time with Hope,Shawn,Colt and Cade.
The grandsons are growing up too fast. Colt will be 9 in October and Cade is 6. Both grandsons are doing very good in school. Colt plays football and Cade soccer. They have a dog Casey, a cat Checkers, a black rabbit Blackie,6 hens, 2roosters,1 bantam and 2 horses. Never a dull moment around the home.

Their property overlooks the Three Sisters and Mt Jefferson. Sometimes when the weather is clear you can also see Mt Bachelor and Broken Top.
The recent forest fires have left the area smokey, but not near as bad as a week ago.
Our plan is to stay here until sometime in November, but weather dictates our actual departure. Hopefully the snows will come after we depart.
