Yesterday Mary and I crossed into Oregon and ended up spending the night at her seven acre rental property along Evans Creek, a tributary of the Rogue, River about 13 miles north of the City of Rogue River.
Mary needed to stop here to ensure her renter had cleared the property properly to comply with the new fire codes. As the owner she has to sign a statement that she has complied with the new law.
Along the way yesterday we passed Lake Shasta. In all the years I’ve been transiting through this area, I’ve never seen the lake so full. In recent years, it’s been way down.
Also passed by Mount Shasta. Both Mary and I remarked at never having seen so much snow on the mountain at this time of year. Recently the Seattle PI (a newspaper for whom I Blog) reported that this past April was the coldest on record for Seattle. The whole west coast was very cold and rainy this past winter.
Today we’ll drive about 175 miles to Florence on the Oregon Coast for a four-day stay at Thousand Trails South Jetty RV Resort.
