Default Trip To Yakima

I left Monday night to travel from Aberdeen WA, too Yakima to watch one of my friends play in the WIAA 2A State golf tournament. I took a few pictures on the way there and the Ranger did great the whole way!

First picture is just after I left when I got on Highway 12.
Second picture is after traveling South, when I made the turn East to head towards White Pass.
Third picture is a really big lake that I went over.
Fourth picture is some of the hills and foliage in the Yakima area. A lot different than what I am used too.
Final picture is a really cool river/stream that I found on the way home.

AND THEN!!!!!!!!
An elk HIT ME!

I was driving home, came around a corner, about 150 yards away I saw an elk in my lane facing off towards the shoulder into the woods. I slowed down and it didn't move, so I went into the opposite lane BEHIND the elk, I was going 20 mph and right as I was passing the elk, it turned around and slammed the front of the Ranger!
Fortunately the radiator was untouched, and the airbag didn't deploy. I am able to drive it, but they headlights do not work, the bulbs are smashed and the housings are ruined.

No the elk was fine. At least, it didn't splatter, it ran off into the woods. When it hit me I was only going 20 MPH, it was still a solid hit though.

Well turns out I got a great deal on the parts from a local junkyard, got lucky too, same year same color so everything was an exact match. Had a little problem realigning the hood but it's taken care of now.
