We’ve been on the move the last few days. We left LaPine, OR, Wednesday and drove north to Deschutes State Park near where the Deschutes River meets the Columbia in northern Oregon. Really pretty park; we had a camping spot on the shore of the Deschutes River -- the same river we camped near at LaPine State Park. After one night at Deschutes, we again went north to the Yakama Nation RV Park in Toppenish, just east of Yakima, WA, and on the Yakama Indian Reservation. Today we’ll move to Sportsman State Park in Yakima. Later this week we're going to Twin Lakes on the Coleville Indian Reservation in northeastern Washington where Jim’s high school friends Pat and Cindy and Buddy and Nancy have cabins.
|We’d read that there were several major wild fires in Oregon, and saw this smoke plume on our way to northern Oregon's Deschutes State Park. It turned out to be a field fire, however. When we got closer it looked reasonably under control.|
