April showers brings May Travels

After a great visit with Beverly, Gino and Gino’s family it was time to hit the road and continue our trek North. We headed up the 101 and did a quick stop at Stafford using our Passport America to break up the trip. It was a very nice little park. The management team was very friendly. They showed us a 1200 year old tree stump that they hand carved into a little home. It took them 3 years but it was pretty cute.IMG_6060 The next morning we headed to a beautiful RPI park right on the Klamath river.

It gave us a lot of opportunity to see some beautiful walks on some California NW coastline as well as some nice hikes among the Redwoods. IMG_6131IMG_6185When we left there we did a quick stop at the Oregon sea lion caves. We had driven by it so many times we just had to stop. It was well worth the stop. So many sea lions, unfortunately it was such a nice day they were all over the rocks and not inside the cave.

Next stop on the 101 was Bullards State park. We had never been there before but it was a nice surprise. Beautiful park with great paths to the beach.IMG_6362 Our last stop on the coast was Whaler’s Rest Thousand Trails RV resort in Newport. We always love Newport, so many nice places to hike. The weather was great so we did a lot of walking on the coast.

Next we moved inland to Portland. We wanted to stay in our old stomping grounds at Clackamette park but it was closed as they have not been able to get a camp host. We ended up splitting our time at Milo McIver state park and Barton County park. Both were great spots to allow us to catch up with a lot of our friends and family. Ten days went by too fast. I wish we could have spent more time to see everyone, hopefully next time through we can! We needed a place to stay over Memorial day weekend so we went over to Sunriver Thousand trails. The weather was beautiful, we got to do a few cleanup/repair items to our home as well as meet up with some more friends and even get in some fly fishing. That about covers May so in June we will begin our move North to Alaska.
