Smith Rock SP

Lovin' our time here at Smith Rock...

Taking in the smells and scenes along the roads of Central Oregon from the seat of a motorcycle.

A visit to Painted Hills... not Painted Canyon or Painted Rocks, both to which we've been, but... Painted Hills.

A stop at the Crooked River Canyon. 
 (this is the same river canyon that is out our back door... just several miles down stream.)

A surprise visit to a dear friend from a long time ago...

Cove Palisades SP is just 20 miles from Smith Rock SP, and hosting there is Dave and Heather with Pug, Dizzy.  If you followed our blog when we hosted at Carl Washburne SP last Summer, you may remember Dave and Heather... but you should definitely remember DIZZY!  We doggy-sat Dizzy on several occasions while there.  And I was in need of a DIZZY fix!  So we made an unplanned visit to their site and found them home.  It was great to see them again and Dizzy remembered us!

But we don't have to go anywhere to enjoy each day. 

Back at "home"... we enjoy the wildlife

We watch Rock Climbers from our back yard

We shared in a birthday get-together with our neighbor hosts...
Dale celebrated his 76th birthday last week.

 Our job isnt even that bad...

That's not all... but it must be all for now.  Time for bed!

Take Care all of you!

  7. Looks like a great place to workcamp. We actually have an app in to workcamp in Oregon maybe even during the winter. I know we are crazy. You asked where we are. We are rotating between a couple parks in our home area around Cedar Rapids, IA (East central IA just about 20 mi. north of Iowa City). We are here until early August, son gets married July 28th. Then we are headed to the NW by way of the Badlands, you won't believe this but right in the middle of the Sturgis rally. Didn't plan it that way just didn't check the Sturgis date. We have reservations in Custer SP. We are spending Labor Day week in Spokane WA and then to Bellingham WA where John's brother lives. Looks like you are enjoying the bikes!

  8. Love the Painted Hills pictures! Looks like the perfect motorcycle ride! We will eventually get to Oregon this summer but not sure when.

    Thanks for following our blog! Ride safe!

    Many diseases are caused when our body is not in the correct balance.

    Nowadays, maintaining a balance with our busy lifestyles can be quite challenging. The quality of foods, a variety of diets and supplements can be overwhelming.

    What we need first and foremost is a balanced diet that is more alkaline than acidic. That way our organs will function properly, and our skeletal health will remain strong.

    Nature has provided us with a humble little seed, the quinoa, which is a powerhouse of nutrients. Queens Quinoa- Grain & Flour is the first naturally grown grain that can help us to maintain an excellent health.
