Armitage County Park, Oregon - 2021

This was our first campsite in the new trailer. We drove a whomping 9.5 mile from the towing company where our trailer was off-loaded from an 18 wheel flatbed truck. We had a fun evening checking out everything in the trailer.

The following day we took a walk around the campground and the McKenize River before heading back over the Cascades to Bend.

Diana's Backyard of the Day. First of many new adventures with our new travel trailer. We seldom drink whiskey, but... we just had to toast “Bud”, our new Canadian built trailer, with some fine Canadian whiskey. Life is good! Pretty campground. Ferns & moss growing at the base of a large fir tree. Looking downstream of the McKenize River. Same spot, but this time looking upstream. The trail goes under an old highway bridge that now serves as a bike/pedestrian bridge. Same bridge. Note, it was built in 1887.
