We have been traveling/living out of our Prius since Easter Sunday, we’ve been to the Badlands, Wall Drug (5-cent detergent filled death, aka coffee), Bozeman, Montana (land of both cowboys and liberal arts educations), Craters of the Moon, Idaho (holy volcanoes, Batman!), Bend, Oregon (let there be hops, and there were hops), Crater Lake (a lake inside an imploded volcano!!!), and finally here in southern Oregon.Read more "State of Magellan April 2015"
