Jun 11, 2014 - Mt. McLauglin photo request

Requested photo information: I was asked about the “Flying Eagle-Flying Angel” image legend about the ability to predict the arrival of the fish with the arrival of the images. So I have compiled the several pictures I have of Mt. McLaughlin. The photo which best shows the image was taken, upon request, on the road as we moved from Shady Cove to our next “home for the week” in Westfir near Oakridge, southeast of Eugene, OR on Hwy 58. Look for the three snow stripes going down the side of the mountain in the center of our view. The two on...

Jun 1, 2014 - On the Rogue River at Shady Cove north of Medford

Shady Cove: Rogue River RV Park, elevation 1404 GPS 42.614577 -122.810811 It only took a few hours to drive the 177 miles from south of Redding, CA to Shady Cove. OR, so we arrived in the early afternoon. Oh my, what a very, very tight space we had to negotiate into. AND, with an audience of four men sitting in the spot right next to us, even spilling over into our site. Of course, they didn't move. It's amusing entertainment to watch people struggle to get their rigs parked. Aaaah, but Dan and I did a good job working together with silent...

May 13, 2014 - Shady Cove, Oregon

We are now on track with our itinerary. We ended up staying an additional day in Seal Beach before overnighting in Patterson (claim to fame: a humongous trash burning facility so spooky looking that the internet claims it's a holding place for zombies). Next stop Red Bluff, like Patterson, always an overnight spot - never a destination. Here in Shady Cove, Oregon we are in our third day at an RV park alongside the Rouge River. It's a beautiful green area, so unlike Southern California, lots of rain fed trees, shrubs and rushing rivers. What...

May 1, 2014 - May Day

Is it really May already? Where the heck did April go, or for that matter, March?? We can't believe that it has been two months since we left Texas. Time is a strange commodity at this age. It comes and goes without seeming to be attached to reality. With our lifestyle, it is hard to keep track of what the date is, or for that matter, what day of the week it is. If we didn't read the paper or watch the news on tv, we might never know what date it was. We are constantly looking at the calendar trying to figure out what day it is. Yep, the...

May 1, 2013 - Happy Camping!

We left Redding this morning where the weather guessers are predicting temps up into the 90's for the rest of the week, and headed north into Oregon. We traveled Highway 5 for the first time. John has never been in this part of California before. -- Mt. Shasta got closer and closer and more magnificent as the miles passed. After about an hour of driving, we were right next to her. At over 14,000 ft., there is still a lot of snow up there. In the distance, we could see other snow capped mountains which, according to the maps, are in the...

Aug 22, 2012 - Following the Rogue River

After we left Crater Lake National Park, we opted to drive home via Highway 62, also known as the Crater Lake Highway (see map from previous post) back to Grants Pass. We were totally unprepared for the absolutely stunning terrain as well as learn more about the Rogue River we were traveling beside the entire route. The Rogue River begins its 215 mile journey right near Crater Lake National Park and empties in the Pacific Ocean at Gold Beach. We took pics of the river with rafters in it when we took the Bear Camp Road return after the...

Jun 28, 2012 - Day Trip: Shady Cove, OR

John is awake before the alarm goes off. He is going fishing! We leave the campground. We turn left. We go over the bridge into Gold Hill. We turn onto Route 234. “John, this is the Umpqua Rogue Scenic Byway.” Of course, it is 3:30 in the morning and DARK! We have no trouble finding Shady Cove and the fish hatchery. We miss one turn but it is an easy turnaround. Not bad for us. We do not normally drive in the dark. Anglers are crazy. You are not allowed to fish until one hour before sunup. Wading anglers are lined up in the water fishing....

Jun 13, 2012 - Crater Lake

Yesterday, we were up and on the road just a little after 6:00 am. It started out being pretty foggy on the coast, but as we headed inland, there was blue skies and sunshine mixed with white puffy clouds. We climbed up and over the Coast Range once again, following the Swift River mostly through the canyon. It was a gorgeous drive with just one area a bit hairy: extremely narrow and windy. John was happy he didn't meet a logging truck in that area. -- We passed into Oregon and John began watching for gasoline prices that were lower than...

Sep 5, 2010 - Crater Lake, OR

September 5, Day 3 Rogue River RV Park Shady Cove, Oregon We visited Crater Lake and brrr was it cold (42 degrees!!) We walked along the rim trail keeping a tight grip on Little Bear’s leash as she liked to jump the low stone wall along the rim. We held her up so she could see the vivid blue lake 1,000 feet below (the lake is 1900 feet deep at its deepest point). We drove back on the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway through Fort Klamath (only a few buildings) though the greenest cow pastures I’ve ever seen and along Upper Klamath Lake before...

Sep 4, 2010 - Ashland, OR

September 4 Day 2 Rogue River RV Park Shady Cove, Oregon Ashland is a very charming town! We walked along Main Street and shopped at a side street of street vendors. Scott took Little Bear to a park across the street where they saw a deer and her faun cross the street. Later Little Bear had a great time romping in Ashland’s extraordinarily large dog park. She ran on the cool grass, rested under the shade of mature trees but declined to splash in the doggie pools! From Ashland we drove north through Talent and Phoenix to Jacksonville -...

September 3 Rogue River RV Park Shady Cove, Oregon We expect to log 5,000 miles and spend fifteen days in transit (driving 4 to 7 hours a day) this trip. Diversions are welcome on long hauls and Scott noticed a trail of tomatoes on the right shoulder of freeways 505 and 5 this morning. Mostly single intact specimens every few hundred feet interspersed with the occasional 20-30 tomato dump. We had a good time tomato spotting for 100 miles! I had fun taking photos through the windshield and passenger window today. I captured a barn on the...

Jul 14, 2009 - Day 34 - Eureka to Shady Cove, OR

Today: 210 miles Total: 6745 miles Dee: (We got back late last night and I was too tired to write at 11:00, but I wanted to put down some thoughts about our anniversary day) As you all know…Dale is the romantic of us…TMI It’s a beautiful morning and so many emotions are hitting me today. First is…of course, our 25th anniversary and it seems like it just crept up on us before we knew it. Honestly, I can remember our wedding day like it was yesterday. It was Friday July 13th and on top of that it was the last full moon of the month. Dale and...
