Take several heavily forested and very green mountain ranges, separate them with wild, foaming rivers, lace trails throughout. Add the sounds of wind in the trees, the roar of foaming waterfalls, the peeps, cheeps, and screeches of birds. It adds up to summer vacation.
I know, I know - we live as though we are on vacation all the time, but summer in the mountains takes me right back to summer camping vacations with my family when I was a kid - and it is a special, very relaxed feeling. Lucky is the child who has parents and grandparents who introduce them to the great experience of camping. (Thanks, Mommy and Daddy!)
We’ve been in Grants Pass three days, and we have hiked on each of them. I’ve got pictures to share. Double-click on any photo to enlarge it, then use the "back" button to return to the blog:
Tomorrow is Memorial Day, and we plan to stay close to home, taking a walk in a city park near our RV Park. Odel plans to cook a slab of ribs in our little solar oven; I’ll make “sides”. Have a good holiday, everyone – and travel safely if you are on the road.
