149.4 Sprague, Washington State

 Yesterday on a whim we drove out to Sprague, WA. I am so glad! It was like time travel. This town should put on Wild West Days or something, to bring in more visitors. It really is a cute little town. We had burgers at the Viking Drive In, and they were good!

This one property on the main street had more antique cars than even the rest of the places had. The whole town is like a permanent car show. There are a dozen various old hay wagons parked on another property.

Near as we could tell, these grain elevators are the reason the town of Sprague, WA exists. We didn't see any other anchor industry or businesses. 

Here is a closer shot of the view as you drive along the main street of town. About half the buildings are still open for business. The other half are boarded up.

I gained a pound yesterday, eating fast food and ice cream. For exercise I walked all over the hills where we went shooting, and walked the dogs up and down the area twice. It was rough out, 90 degrees with 40 percent humidity, and huge green blood sucking bugs! Here is what I ate:

Small bowl of Special K and organic soy milk
Sliced Gala apple candied with 2 tablespoons chunky peanut butter and 36 dark chocolate chips
Mushroom burger with all the trimmings and cole slaw - at The Viking Drive In, Sprague, WA
About an ounce of Scott's peanut butter milk shake
Sliced Gala apple candied with 2 tablespoons chunky peanut butter and 36 dark chocolate chips
Scoop of Breyer's mint chip ice cream
Three handfuls of corn tortilla chips
