Cow Parsnip
Heracleum maximum

Earl didn't have any luck fishing in the river after lunch, either. :-(

We got up early yesterday morning, had one cup of coffee and headed over to the Frenchglen Hotel to have blueberry pancakes. Seating at the restaurant is family style...we sat at a table with a family who lives, I believe she said (it was noisy and hard to hear some of the conversation) in Lakeview, Oregon. The daughter will be a sophomore at the University of Oregon in Eugene this coming fall. Also with this family was a young man from Serbia (I assume here on a student exchange). After that family left, a couple from France sat down with us. All in all, it was a pleasant morning...and the blueberry pancakes were delicious!

After breakfast, we headed south. We were planning on stopping in Fields to have one of their great hamburgers and milk shakes, but we were still full from breakfast, so passed it up, stopping, instead, at a pullout along US-95 north of Winnemucca to have lunch.

We stopped at the Wal-Mart in Winnemucca for groceries, and then drove up to the Water Canyon BLM Campground south of town. This campground has a great view of the valley, although Winnemucca itself is hidden behind one of the hills.
