Heading West - Day Four
Twin Falls, Idaho to Pendleton, Oregon

Excellent coffee at the Lucky Perk in Meridian, Idaho.
We made it!
Heading toward Baker City with the Umatilla National Forest on the horizon.
Baker City, Oregon.
Found this great little cafe (Lone Pine Cafe) on Tripadvisor.
Probably the best carnitas I've ever tasted! The Rogue Dead Guy was pretty good, too.
Had to check out this independent bookstore. Only bought one book (If You Lived Here, I'd Know Your Name by Heather Lende), but I could have easily walked out with a lot more.
I-84 at Cabbage Hill. We had heard a lot about Deadman Pass, so we were prepared for the steep descent (6% downgrade for seven miles). It wasn't nearly as stressful as I'd anticipated, but I wouldn't want to drive it in the winter or at night!
Runaway truck ramp. Thankfully, the Silverado has an engine breaking switch, which I used quite a lot on this trip.
Another Tripadvisor find! Hamley's is a great restaurant that we'll definitely return to, if we're ever back in Pendleton.
Rod's dream bar!
