We began July with our annual camping trip into the Wenatchee National Forest. One of the best parts of this trip is the drive there. This is such a lovely part of the world and when the weather cooperates, some spectacular views. There was even some snow left.
to a really lovely campground, Maryhill State Park, right on the Washington banks of the Columbia river. Peaceful and thanks to irrigation, very green.
After a couple of nights, we continued south to Sisters, Oregon, our intended destination. The triangle of cities formed by Redmond, Sisters and Bend are beautifully located on the eastern side of the spine of the Cascade Mountain range. From Mt. Hood south there is peak after peak to be seen. An excellent RV Park, located just 3 miles from Sisters.
One full day we spent at the High Desert Museum, outside of Bend. Well worth a trip
Another full day was spent at the Lava Fields, including a drive up the lava cone.
The famous Sister's Quilt Show is in the next blog update.
