Note that temp!!! Weather man said it could get down to 36 tonight!!
We're having some kind of sewer problems. Bob says it's like the sewer tank that we're dumping into is "full". We had a ton of laundry to do and showers to take. Since we were dry camping at the rally, we were being extremely careful with water consumption. Actually it was being careful with water output into the holding tanks - since there was no dumping until we got here. So no laundry, no showers, minimum dish washing (we used paper plates and bowls), etc. But 4 days without showers is my personal limit and the showers at this campground were yucky!! So we really need to be able to use the sewer hook up at the campsite.
Today we drove the Cascades Lakes National Scenic Byway - nicknames Oregon's Highway in the Sky. Scenic America named it one of the nation's 10 most important byways. It is a 66 mile drive mostly around Mt. Bachelor. Enormous Mt. Bachelor dominates the horizon of smaller peaks, and is one of the nation's best and most popular ski resorts. Great snow typically lasts through June. During summer, the Summit Express lift takes sightseers to the 9,065-foot peak. The dramatic 360-degree view overlooks a volcanic skyline stretching from California to Washington. Unfortunately, today there was so many clouds and it was too cold for anyone to enjoy the ski lift, so it was not operating.
We saw deer, possibly elk (they were too far and too fast to be sure), sand hill cranes and a chipmunk.
