Heading to La Pine
Drove about 176 miles to my next destination, La Pine State Park. On the way while driving on Hwy 31 This was my view. It was really spectacular. Of course as you get farther north in Oregon everything looks spectacular. I love the mountains.
Nice State Parks
The Oregon State Parks are very scenic and are immaculate. The only downfall is that the two I have stayed at (Goose Lake and La Pine) only have 20 amp electric hookups. La Pine is very large and has 3 different loops where you can camp. I choose the North Loop. I had to go around it twice and tried several campsites before I was able to get one that was fairly level. Fortunately there weren’t many campers there so there were a lot of sites available.
My beautiful campsite
It was a beautiful park and lots of trees everywhere. This is a pic of my site.
Hiking along the Deschutes River
On my 2nd day here I went for a hike. It took me down to the Deschutes River. I hiked for about 1 1/2 miles all along the river and saw lots of beautiful scenery.
If you click on this next pic and then click again you will see the moss growing on the tree branches.
This would definitely be a great place to spend more time as there is a lot to see. But I am on my way to my camp host job and committed myself to be there on the 14th. But the next time I am in this area I hope to see more of it.
