Traveled a whopping eight miles today. We found a campground with a mixture of deciduous & mixed conifer trees, along with moss, ferns & dense bushes surrounded by dunes. Nice!

A bridge walk-way through the darlingtonia californica bog. Darlingtonia californica, a carnivorous plant, is native to Northern California and Oregon growing in bogs and seeps with cold running water.
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.
Local Flavor – Area Businesses We Enjoyed & Recommend
• Yachats Brewing 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. From the Sutton campground, it's about a thirty-minute drive, which makes it a nice side trip.
A weathered trail maker in town.
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.
