I thought I'd start this blog entry with some excuses.....or explanations at the very worst! Please excuse any spelling or grammatical errors in these blogs, as I write after a long day on the road, a few bourbons & a feed and man fingers with a small keyboard! I will be referring to temperatures & distances in Fahrenheit and Miles, so if you wish to convert, use Mr Google, he is your friend! Also, please don't forget to click on the images for a larger view. On my last entry, I mentioned that we were heading off to dinner at the Branding Iron Restaurant, well let me say, what a great dining experience. Excellent service by our server, George, who gave us the low down on their specials and all the good stuff. Clam Chowder to ... read more

After being rained out a couple of days and enduring marginal weather a couple of others, Wednesday, October 22, 2014 was a beautiful day to be out and about whether driving to a new location, taking a scenic drive or exploring an outdoors attraction such as a waterfall or a covered bridge. My regular followers know that Wednesday is my relocation day, and this Wednesday was no exception although this Wednesday found me stepping outside the box. Since my next destination, Klamath Falls OR, is only about 140 miles and 3-1/2 hours from Bend OR and since I had been assured by the folks at the Bend Visitor Center that there was adequate room for parking my rig with the Pilgrim in tow, I did have one stop planned for the trip south. That stop, High ... read more

Klamath Falls was on our itinerary for the bird watching at all the various marshes and wildlife refuges. We are staying at the Runny Y Ranch. We got into town in good time, checked out the visitor center to get oriented and maps. Then headed to Lower Klamath & Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuges in northern CA. Spotted a Spotted Owl fledgling sitting on a houses yard as we approached Lower Klamath NWR. They had a nice information center and a hike around a small pond...lots of birds. Then we took an auto-tour around Tule Lake. If this is what they have off-season, can only imagine during the spring/fall migration season. This should definitely be on your radar if interested in bird watching. Adjacent to Tule Lake is Lava Beds National Mo... read more

After a long month of school Eric and I decided to take a break by going into the sky lakes basin wilderness for three days. Not really knowing much about it we left with our trusty GPS and enough food for three days. Our hike in was relatively easy. It was about five miles until we reached the first lake. We found our campsite pretty quickly, but decided to put down our packs and hike around for awhile just in case we found another one. We hiked for about half a mile until we found the next lake. After searching we decided to go back to the first site we saw. We quickly put up the tent then headed to the lake for a swim. We were the only humans for miles so we decided the ... read more

After a great stay at the Moore Hotel, Seattle we got the free bus (all the buses in the downtown area are free!) to the station for the Coast Starlight train to Klamath Falls – a 12 hour journey (handy hint on the Amtrak trains you have to give your ticket to the conductor at the station who gives you a boarding card – you can’t get on without it). The first 4 hours to Portland are through some stunning scenery (sit on the right hand side for the best views), they had a couple of park rangers on who were explaining what you were seeing and telling funny stories which was really interesting. A lot of the towns are named after the native American indian tribes who lived there originally. The blue rivers (Pugot sound) ... read more

August 14-15: Rocky Point, on the western edge of Klamath Lake. This place is so peaceful, so calm, such a balm to the eyes. The colors are so---I couldn't think of the right words. “Like a Bonnie Griffith painting”, said Phil. Yes. Thank you sooooo much, Cathy, for telling me about this place, I'm sure I would never have happened upon it. Canoeing is one of my most favorite activities...And we saw many birds close up, including pelicans, various ducks, grebes, red-winged blackbirds, a great blue heron, a bald eagle, and many more we couldn't name. Also lots of fish beneath the water.... read more
