Yesterday I drove the motorhome 20 miles from Wimer to Gold Hill, Oregon.

Along the way, I stopped in Rogue River.

 

 

Today’s subject…

 

Rogue River was originally named Tailholt.

The Tailholt Legend…

In the early days, gold seekers forded the Rogue River, often swimming across by holding onto the tail of their horse.

Woodville: In 1872, John Woods built the first framed house in the area. It served as a stage stop, post office and rooming house. Soon there emerged a thriving community commonly called “Woodville”.

Rogue River: It wasn’t until 1912 that the community was incorporated as a city and officially named Rogue River.

 

 

Here are some of the photos that I took yesterday in between raindrops…

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!
