On the road toward the Nature Conservatory 1000 Springs (now a star park) Preserve and Idaho Power plant. We spent so time there.

We rented this trailer for a trip to California. This stopped is in Nevada and had some unique plants, we usually stopped there.

We were using a trailer as our last tent camping we selected a lovely meadow to set up camp. Unknown too us it was a major trail for the animals. One of the dogs was heat coyote will,bred a female dog but kill a male. The coyote came right to the tent. Both dogs were silent. I prayed that they wouldn’t come the tent. Later I learned my husband had his gun out. I said I want something better that tent between me and the wild animals. We than brought different RD over the years.

We retired in 1995 an spent a few days in the Tucannon region in Washington state. We had two dogs with us not shown. The Brittany belong to a good friend. The motorhome was ours.

This was a favorite site for us. The tree Kato taught himself to climb. I had heart failure when I saw up in the tree. He was sure proud of himself.

Kato in the tree. The yellow badge was his home away tag. He was about Six/seven month old at this time. He joined us at 4 months and spent the first six years of his life with us.

We were on the Washington coast. The Pacific Ocean was about 2_blocks away. Kato was about 5 months old and he refused to go any farther. One time we picked him up and walk to the Ocean. He didn’t like Ocean at all. The waves strong and the sound was deadly. He was probably smelling another cat.

This was on the Oregon Coast. The next picture shows,the area.

The next two, show Kato inside the motorhome

Once he satisfied with an object, he forgot it. The printer fascinated him.

Washington state near Steven Pass. We were camp hosts there one summer.

A view we saw in the East side of California. I don’t remember the name of the creek.

We spent the winters in the Southwest and the summers on the Camas Prairie in Idaho. Health reason is why we stopped.
