Chiloquin, OR, May 22, 2018

We started today on our trip to the Escape Customer Appreciation Rally in Osooyos, BC, just "down the street" from the Escape Trailer factory in Chilliwack, BC.  Every year about this time, they host a rally for Escape trailer owners.  We thought we should go to one, so we are on our way.  Today, we traveled 384 miles to Chiloquin, OR, and are staying overnight in Waterwheel RV Park.  It is a delightful place on the banks of the Williamston River.  Our neighbor told us there is good fly fishing here.  We are enjoying the peace and quiet after a long day of driving.  Tomorrow, we are off to

Olympic National Park, West side

After spending a few days at the north side of the park, we moved around to camp at Kalaloch campground, a really nice campground on the bluff above the Pacific Ocean near the southwest corner of the park.  We didn't know what to expect as it was a national park campground, which are always nice, but we had been camping in parks with hookups.

Lewis and Clark NHS

In July, we took a trip to the Washington Olympic Peninsula.  At the start of the trip, we went to Astoria, OR, and stayed at Fort Stevens State Park.  We recommend all Oregon state parks as we have yet to be disappointed by them.  They have all been great.

We visited Lewis and Clark National Historic Site, where the Lewis and Clark expedition stayed for the winter on their trip to explore the Louisiana Purchase.  We learned a lot about Lewis and Clark and their journey.  If you like historical places, you will like this park.

Pinnacles National Park

From Morro Bay, we went to Fruitdale, and stayed at a KOA which positioned us to go easily to Monterey, Pinnacles, and home.  The KOA was like a lot of RV Parks, mostly pads for trailers with little greenery or separation from your neighbors.  This park was almost all paved with what seemed like a lot of permanent or at least long term campers.  It seems that there are more and more long term campers in RV Parks.

Morro Bay

After being in Pismo Beach, which was rather disappointing, we went to Morro Bay and had a great time there.  This first photo is Morro Rock, 578 feet high, from the top of Black Hill, 661 feet high.  We all know that Morro Rock is at the mouth of the Morro Bay harbor and is one big rock sticking out of the water at the shoreline.  It is actually one of a set of volcanic peaks that remain after erosion has done its thing in this area.
