A beautiful day starts at Salmon River RV Park in Otis, Oregon. Lisa, the manager of the campsite, holds the torch. We were very happy with our stay!

Happy happy smile!

What better way to start the day than a cold swim in the river by the campsite?

Beautiful and refreshing!

We lit the peace torch, ready to run.

We very much enjoyed the landscape in Oregon.

Harita was spontaneously invited to share the torch and the message of the run with some new friends at The Family Place, a relief nursery for young children, while running into McMinnville. Thank you to all the staff, children and volunteers for your great inspiration and super friendly welcome!

There shall come a time When all children of the world Will enjoy one thing: Peace-dream. -Sri Chinmoy

The food is really delicious. It's a real authentic Indian meal.
