Day 14: 45 miles, Jun 1

This was a great, sunny day. Stopped at the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center (up a VERY steep hill) and learned about the mass migration via wagons in the 1800's. I took this shot from the outhouse where I camped in Richland. Some view, huh?! In the morning, I was awakened by Fred Riggs, the caretaker of the park where I set up, and had a very friendly conversation about local history and culture. He's 80 years old, and remembers well the inaugural TransAmerica Trail ride in 1976.
