Author Road Trip, Day 4: Boise to Bend

This post originally appeared in May on True STORIES. It chronicles the author’s book-tour-road-trip from Denver to Portland for The Rooms Are Filled. I put my husband in charge of taking pictures during the book party in Boise, and therefore I have no pictures of the event to share. Here are photos of Day 4, the drive from Boise, Idaho to Bend, Oregon. I learned several things about Oregon on this trip: eastern Oregon is surprisingly the most unpopulated place we traveled; Oregon has enormous crows (can’t tell you how many times I pointed out the car window and said, “A hawk!” only to discover it was another crow); you have to pump your own gas; and the drivers are extremely friendly to pedestrians. I learned several things about Oregon on this trip: eastern Oregon is surprisingly the most desolate place we traveled, Oregon has big crows, you have to pump your own gas, and they are drivers are extremely friendly to pedestrians.
