Rain, Rain, GO AWAY!

Good evening ladies and gents! 

It has not stopped raining in the Pacific Northwest since Saturday and I am about to go crazy if I don't get some sunshine SOON! No matter where we go, it still seems to rain. Aaron and I went to visit his hometown in Eastern Oregon last Thursday and just got back today and it rained there and the majority of the ride home. The trip could have been less rainy, but nonetheless it was a good time. We checked out Hot Lake Springs Hotel in La Grande, which used to be a really hopping hotel/surgical center in the early 1900's. Apparently the sulfur in natural springs were good for people and are now used as a spa treatment. In the mid 1930's, a fire burnt down half the building and the other half shut down, became run down and supposedly, "haunted". A family came in about 6 years ago, bought the property, and have been rebuilding the place ever since and are hoping to reopen the doors for hotel and a full spa and salon plus much more in the next year or so. Right now they're open for tours, so we went and checked it out. There was some pretty neat stuff and their wine isn't too bad either :) Aaron and I also made our way up to Wallowa Lake to hike around a little bit and see the lake, even though it was pouring down rain :'(  I guess its alright though since my camera still isn't fixed. Next time time.
Well, hope y'all have a wonderful night and hopefully I'll be able to bring some awesome pictures your way soon. Until next time...
