We are staying in Cove Palisades State Park near Madras, OR. An interesting campground in a canyon on a peninsula surrounded by two rivers: the Deschutes River and the Crooked River.
The road leading into this area is very narrow with loose gravel on steep slopes on both sides. Did I mention the logging trucks? Yea, they were sharing the narrow road along with other boaters and RVs. Did I also mention it was a little scary at times? Then, there's the narrow bridge...Dan had to drive down the middle of it. There was no way we could cross with oncoming traffic. Lucky for us, the driver across the river saw us and waited while we crossed the bridge. She was a sweetie to wait!

Once we were settled, we were quite happy with our new home. This is a popular summer weekend get-away for the locals. The campground went from a ghost town to party central on Friday. It was rather entertaining to watch people quickly setting up their areas. Talk about rushing to relax!
Monday, we will move to LaPine, OR just south of Bend.
Hitch wore himself out running from tree to tree and chasing very brave lizards. He wore me out trying to keep up with him. I'm a little worried that he is re-energizing for his next outdoor visit....I should rename him - Solar Kat.

On The Cutting Board
I finished four 4th of July wall hangings designed by Nancy Halvorsen for my Etsy shop. This is the first time I have set a goal for myself. Not only did I meet my goal, I finished and listed two days ahead of my due date! I'm going to give that goal setting a try again for my next set of Etsy projects.
