Road trip, 5th of July....

Sunday Hubby and I took a road trip. Down to see my cousins camping park where they lease a spot in a private park. Taylor park. It is down in north central Oregon, we were about 100 miles from Bend Or.

It is on the North Fork of the Santiam River. Here is Hubby and DeeAnn and Liz beside the river.

Stella (the dog) and another cousin Steve in the water and his cousin Kyle.

Pete had fun, he is a water dog!

Pretty stretch of river.

There were these cool old power line poles, made out of all wood! You dont see that much anymore.

One of the cabins in the campground. This is how most of the area is, deep woods and they carve their own little camp space out of the lot they lease.
We had a nice visit and got to see the camp ground and there were a lot of people camping!

We took a rural route home as opposed to taking the Highway home. This is a cool old house we drove by.

And this one, neat old architecture.

and coming across the I-205 Bridge, view of Mt Hood and all the people playing on the Columbia river.

The Mt was a little hazy in the distance, it wasnt real clear out, probably because of the hot weather we had over the 4th, it was 90 degrees for 3 days in a row!

Hwy 14, Mt Hood always greets us when we head home, even though we are on the north side of the river.

More people playing on the river, it was a good weekend for it! It was about an hour and a half drive down to Taylor park, and a nice drive home.


  1. Gorgeous pictures! Looks like you had a great time!

  2. Likes like A great trip. Nice photos as well

  3. Hey we are practically neighbors!! I recognized most of those pictures and felt right at home. Boy howdy - it sure was hot huh? We had temps in the upper 90's and 99 on Saturday July 4th!! Hot dog!! I guess summer really is here after all. Looks like you had a great day trip and those river shots are beautiful. Someday, I would love to move into that area of Central Oregon - not Bend, it's gotten to big cityish for my tastes, but somewhere south of there would be great. Horseback riding even in the winter would be nice...I'd have to get used to having snow more often though. Great pictures!!
    Thanks for your comment on my blog - I appreciated the nice words. Family issues are never easy, are they? Oh well...time heals everything right? Take care!!


Thanks for visiting my bubblebath of life! Come back soon!
