Meeting MaryJane’s Farmgirls….

A group of Farmgirls from Missouri, Wisconsin, Colorado, Arizona, and Washington got together in Orofino, Idaho at the home of Diana and Cy P.  They live above Dworschak Dam on top of a mountain.  It’s an incredible view from just about any viewpoint.  Being camera happy, I got lots of pictures.

We stopped to have lunch during our thrifting trip in Orofino, right here…nope, not the Redneck …..the one on the corner!  The air conditioning was a welcome relief from the 96 temps outside! 

      orofino 054  That evening Cy took us down to the lake (Dworschak) and showed us the most beautiful (free) campsites on the lake.

Then Cy gave us a real treat…a cool down on his boat.  It was a blast and so refreshing!
