Breakfast this morning: Sandwich with Chanterelles foraged on our walk yesterday sautéed in butter with avocado and the last of the arugula from our home garden. A meandering bridge through the Darlingtonia California bog, located on the other side of Hwy 101. Darlingtonia californica, a carnivorous plant, is native to Northern California and Oregon growing in bogs and seeps with cold running water. Matsutake mushrooms found near the campground. On our hike, we found a few choice matsutake mushrooms. This evening we sliced them up and grilled them on our Weber Little Smokey along with a couple of burgers. Yum! It’s now campfire time.

Yachats, OR

The Yachats area is one of our favorite spots on the Oregon coast. Whenever we in the vicinity, we make a point on visiting. It's about a thirty-minute drive from the Sutton campground, which makes it a nice side trip.

selfie at yachats brewing We hooked up with a couple of RV friends at Yachats Brewing — they’re camping up the coast from us & the brewery was the logical halfway point. We first met them in the fall of 2013 at Klipchuck Campground just east of North Cascade NP.
