Day 5: Baker City, OR
So close! Almost home... but there's serious snow and sleet on the next leg through the Oregon mountains, and I didn't want to do that in the dark.
Today I was surrounded by thunderstorms. They are AWESOME on a plain like that where you can see acres and acres getting hammered by rain... pic just flatten them out. They don't translate at all.
Anyway, I saw a trucker's travelcat sitting happily on his dash. Pretty sweet. Also spotted: A guy working on powerlines while perched on a helicopter's skids! This is not a job for a windy day.
