Ep. 321: Blue Mountains, Washington | RV travel camping boondocking history

Avatar admin | August 23, 2023

The Blue Mountains, named for their color when seen from a distance, occupy about 15,000 square miles in the southeast corner of Washington and the northeast corner of Oregon, for camping at elevation in the heat of the summer. While boondocking in Umatilla National Forest near where Lewis and Clark's Corps of Discovery passed through the area, in this week's Grand Adventure we visit the nearby farming town of Pomeroy, check out Palouse Falls State Park, and examine the region's wheat production, including a visit to a unique, intact turn-of-the-century water powered flour mill with a restaurant where you'll never receive a bill for your meal.

Welcome to Grand Adventure, a YouTube channel that focuses on RV-centric outdoor activities including not only of course camping, but also mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, skiing and more, always filmed in stunning 4K.

We're based in Salt Lake City, Utah during the winter months, and invite you to come along as we travel all around the U.S. My wife Patricia and I, and dog Zoe are avid boondockers, so while you'll occasionally find us in RV parks or even dry campgrounds, we're usually camped in some of the most remote and beautiful spots that you could ever pull a travel trailer into. We've now transitioned from "long-timing" for six months a year, to living and traveling in our RV full-time.

We'll provide beautiful travel videos, as well as some tips and insight on trip planning, and equipping and maintaining your RV to make your next adventure a grand one indeed! So, subscribe to make sure that you catch every episode, and remember...life is nothing but a Grand Adventure!
