Redmond, OR to Harrisburg, OR

Here is yet another boring route report.  If I don't write it down, we won't remember where we've been.  Today's route was Redmond, OR to Harrisburg, OR.  My first observation is that driving from Burns to Harrisburg would have been just awful.  Note to self, don't plan on doing that, ever.  The mileage is not great, but the roads are very slow driving.
We left the fairgrounds and drove 126 to Sisters.  Then we were back on 20 until the 20/22 split.  There is a length restriction on 20, we are too long for that road.  At Mehama, we turned left on to 226.  Both 22 and 226 have a fair amount of descending, with a significant number of curves.  But they are still better than driving 20! Just before I5, we turned back on to 20.  This takes you into Albany.  After that it's the freeway down to the Halsey exit.  There is a Shell there with a truck island.  It's a good gas station, it's level, unlike the one on the other side of I5.  We dragged and bent the gravel guard leaving that one a couple of years ago.  So, that is how we got here.
Most of my pictures were terrible today.  Too many dead bugs on the windshield, and too many clouds.  This is on the way to Sisters.

This is a reservoir alongside of 22.  As you can see out the side window, it's really low.  See the stumps?

Hay is being harvested in the Willamette Valley.

We're here for the week.  We'll be seeing Erik at Elite for all of the non-emergency issues that have been piling up over the past few months.  None reach the level of an in-frame engine rebuild, but when one owns a Class A, one requires maintenance.  We are also having the transmission fluid replaced.  It's time.
Posting may be light while we're here, there's just not that much to say about Harrisburg.
