We are here at Seven Feathers RV Park and Casino Resort, owned by the Umpqua Indians. It’s quite lovely, with paved streets, nice landscaping, plus an indoor pool with hot tub.

Today we planned to visit Redwood National Park, but now with the government shutdown, that’s not going to happen. Lindsay has already written to Lindsey and Trey, but hasn’t heard back from them yet!

We took advantage of a “sun break” this morning and drove to the Winchester Fish Ladder on the North Umpqua River. Windows allow visitors to see salmon swimming upstream. The station uses video cameras to record numbers and species passing through the structure. The salmon that we saw were about two feet long!

We will leave tomorrow for Red Bluff, CA hoping to find some more sun and also to visit Lassen Volcano National Park (maybe!?). Just as I wrote that bit about sun, the sun came out here. Maybe that big front is on its way out for good.

It's like we are taking the trip with you. Sorry that squabble in Congress is putting a problem in your visits to National Parks. Larson is an interesting and often overlooked park, to bad you won't be able to visit. All is well here in SC, the weather is great and we are enjoying OLLI. See you when you return. Keep up the info flow. Tom and Sandy
