2012 Summer Vacation

2012-07-09_14-01-16_HDRAh summer, time to pack the kids up and hit the open road. Our trip included Cub Day Camp, a rock garden, camping, lava caves, crater lake, and much more. Read on for a full account…

IMG_3496Whew! What a week! After doing a thorough brain-dump of the festivities, I ended up with SEVEN blog posts! Rather than bug every one with sharing each one individually, I decided to make a ‘master blog post’ to re-cap the journey, and link to the individual parts.

IMG_3684In a nutshell, my brother traveled from Texas, and I from Oregon to camp together on a new piece of property we acquired from our Grandmother. We had planned the date 6 months or so in advance, to be sure we both got the time approved from work. As it turned out this year, I had to postpone my journey to California to meet my brother, as Cub Camp was scheduled that first weekend.

Cub Camp Part 2 (Conclusion)

We left camp early to split for John Day to stay for the night. Part 1 covers our semi-eventful journey to the Bend area. Once there we explored the Petersen Rock Gardens in Part 2 and head for Klamath Falls.IMG_3798

Part 3 entails moving and improving our new camp, and general camping goodness. Falling trees, building, shooting, and some gourmet camp cookin’.

The trip home is detailed in Part 5, where we visit Crater Lake, the John Day Fossil Beds, and Painted Hills.
