We left Hood River around 9 under overcast skies, but no rain. As we drove east, we went through patches of low fog which made for some eerie landscapes.
Despite the overcast and occasional fog, it was a nice drive along the river. The further east we went, the dryer the terrain was and we left the forests and entered the dessert climate of Eastern Washington.

After visiting with Rob and Judy for a while it was time for us to hit the road again. Our plan was to stay in Yakima so we headed west and arrived in Yakima in the late afternoon. Even though there was heavy overcast all day, we didn't get into any rain until just before Yakima. Once again our hotel room overlooked a river, this time the Yakima. The fall color continues to be spectacular. Here are a few pictures Val took from our balcony.
Another great day and more to come tomorrow.
