High Desert Rhubarb Festival

Today, we drove to La Pine to check out the High Desert Rhubarb Festival.  The temp is in the 70's, so I think summer is finally here.  We arrived around 1:30, and most of the rhubarb treats were sold out.  Lots of craft booths and some good pulled pork for lunch.  Emil noted there were more guns for sale than rhubarb.  Hmmm.

At REI, I picked up a water bottle and some bike shorts for our bike tour adventure in the San Juan Islands.  Guide books will arrive on Monday, so we can plot our trip.  In my current fantasy in La La Land, we end up with summer jobs up there until August 15th, then we head to Colorado to attend a wedding.  We'll see how that fantasy works out.  An alternative fantasy is driving across the US towards Ohio, checking out the Upper Peninsula (with recommendations from LoMo and her Mom), seeing my friend, Wendy, in her new digs in Grand Rapids, and then down to Cincinnati.

Here are some pics from the gorgeous day:

Lovely pickin' and grinning music.  I love the banjo!

Win this old truck.  4 speed, 350, something or other.

Pulled pork and coleslaw, y'all!
