Yakima kinda-adventure

We drove up to Yakima to a conference where Ron was speaking on litigation. Normally you'd think that would be a big yawner, right? Nope. Ron could make ice cubes melting sound interesting. He did a great job. On the way up...or over...whatever...they closed the highway for rock blasting. We were like the last ones to be let through before they closed the road. Yeah, we could have stopped the car and laid right down on the road if we'd wanted to. It was a little eery. Nothing but beautiful sunset behind us.
...And nothing but beautiful moonlight in front of us.
...We stopped at Mountain High Hamburgers on the way up. Their hot fudge shakes are beyond wonderful!
After Ron's presentation we drove into town and stopped at this little Italian cafe by the train depot, and dined 'alfresco'. It was really good, but the polar opposite of the Italian restaurant in my last post. This food was HEAVY.
As we drove over the mountains, we stopped at the gigantic fruit stand in Thorp and bought some of the most dee.lish.us. peaches! And boy was it windy!
Remember the TROLL dolls from when you were a kid? Yeah, that's my hair! Ha!
Gotta love pose-able hair!
