Harry Potter Goes Back To School Today

Today is the day that Harry Potter would go back to school using the magical platform at King's Cross.

I wanted to revisit my time in London and share some pics I took while I was there. I was there for only a day, but I did manager to see a lot.

Hollywood 2013 - Universal Studios

I just found these pics and wanted to share. I can't believe I didn't post something about this trip when it happened. Hmmm.

It was fun. Lot's of thing to do, see, and eat.

Universal Studios was a blast!

I love to fly...

Pelton Park | Kah-Nee-Ta | Timothy Lake | Warm Springs

I wanted to take another trip to Warm Springs, but this time I wanted to do it in my car.

Pelton Park seemed like a good destination. It took about two hours to get there. I went through Kah-Nee-Ta to take some pictures. I had a gnawing feeling I should take some of the resort even if it did look rundown.

Later I stopped off at Timothy Lake, and it was an awesome drive.

It is so peaceful and quiet in the desert. Listen to the short recording I made while I was in Kah-Nee-Ta.You can't hear anything because it's that quiet.


Pelton Park was a tad pretentious and small. Lots of signs warning you not to do this or that and very restricted to guests - not friendly to the public at all. I probably wouldn't go back, but the Daschutes area is gorgeous.





Kahneeta Pool Parking Entrance.


Horse stables. You could go on a horse back ride for $25 an hour.


Park - you could swim in the pool all day long.


Leaving Kah-Nee-Ta.
