Himself suggested that after paying a couple of bills, we head up the hill to the Horseheaven Viewpoint, as that road is one with some curves. It is a hill that he uses for a test drive whenever we are looking for a new to us car. You can gauge the power of the vehicle on that climb.
Before heading up the hill, we stopped to pay the power bill, and while he was inside I spotted this bicycle rack which was a great example of utilitarian curves, as was the curved edge of the landscaping edging beyond.
We were going out to find curves that were designed to prevent the need to use a road like this one. Aren't you glad that engineers have found just the right curves to make an ascent of a hill like this one more feasible?
You can see the some of the curves in the road as we begin our climb. At the top, however, you can see the long stretches of straight--straight across the top of the hills between the wheat fields--between harvest and planting at this time of the year.
Straight in both directions.
A long long way across the field to another road.
We could see the curves in the Yakima River below in the valley. Not the curviest part of the river.
And we could look down the road at the curves that would return us to Prosser.
The orchards and vineyards below are rather curvy as well.
And so is Interstate 82 right along here.
The sidewalk at the viewpoint curves around the tree.
After our excursion to the viewpoint we went for lunch at Hog Heaven...
...where we found quite a few curvy antiques in the décor.
And on the way back to our car spotted the art deco curves of the Princess Theatre sign. Signs in the windows at the theater reminded me that the Lower Valley Musical Comedy Association is presenting Annie this weekend and next. We need to get our tickets. I hope they are not already sold out. We are wondering who will portray Sandy.
