Emigrant Springs State Park, Oregon

Jim and Sandy have been enjoying this campground and a day off from traveling. They took a short hike around the perimeter of the state park this morning.

Some history of the area has some interesting facts. This state park is close to the summit of the Blue Mountains and is on the Oregon Trail area. Back in January of 1812, before my time, the Astor Overland Expedition traveled this way making a trail for the Emigrants to use as the Oregon Trail.

I have traveled 1,100 miles as of this stop. Pretty good for this old VW.

Jim is going to make a campfire tonight. Fire wood is $5 for a cart full, about twice as much wood as we are used to for the price.

That is it for today,



  1. That last picture made me laugh! Just how I picture Dad on vacation! We miss you!

  2. Great pictures! Looks like you are having a wonderful, relaxing time!
