It doesn’t seem possible that I have been here at Ochoco Divide NFS campground for almost 4 1/2 months. I am scheduled to close up the park at the end of the month. I still keep getting a steady flow of campers although not as many. I think it is due to the fact that this area has not gotten any rain yet, however it is getting colder at night. Day time temps are still in the 80’s and Thursday it is supposed to go up to 90, but the night temperatures have gone done to the 40’s and even the 30’s. There is still much to do here as I have bathroom floors and picnic tables to paint on top of the regular routine.
Not too many cyclists left
I am still getting a few cyclists coming through the campground usually looking to just take a break after climbing a long hill from Mitchell, OR and also needing water. Dan and Isabella are from Sisters, OR and they came through here headed east about a week ago. I gave them some water then and they headed on their way. This past week they came through on their return trip and also stopped for a rest and some fresh water. They had cycled to Joseph, a little town next to Hell’s Canyon and east of the Wallowa mountain range. That must have been some beautiful scenery.
Almost to the East Coast
A few days ago I sent my friend Jack an text message asking him how he was doing and where he was. Jack started out his cycling adventure in Florence, OR and his goal was the Atlantic Ocean. He called me and said he was in Kentucky and only had about 450 miles to go to finish. What an accomplishment!
Not really too much else to report but I am looking forward to hitting the road soon.
