The driest summer in Oregon history means lots of wildfires, making it almost impossible to find a place in the northwest where the skies aren’t thick with smoke.
Last week we headed off to central Oregon as a last hurrah before school started. We reserved a favorite place on Suttle Lake and hoped for the best. Good news was that the campground was empty…bad news was that the caldera was filled with smoke making it almost impossible to see across the lake. Although we didn’t get the typical central Oregon blue skies we did get some spectacular sunsets!
A fun couple of days at the lake but we headed out a day early when we found a spot in Camp Sherman. We decided to extend our camping another three days, smoke or no smoke….
