Saturday's Drive Home from Rainbow/Blue River:

It was gorgeous on Saturday morning as we left the upper McKenzie Valley.  We went to Delta Campground right off the highway as you turn to go into the Cougar Recreation Area.  It is so pretty there.  We have camped there a couple of times in our trailer.  The campground itself is now closed for the winter, but it is a nice drive with lots of pictures to be taken before you get to the gate.

This is an old growth forest that has been left alone for the most part.  I'll get together a post on this campground and put it on my The McKenzie River Valley website soon. http://ogocaj7.blogspot.com/

We stopped and filled up with gas at Harbicks Country,  Store (which offers the last gas for 50 miles) and then headed towards the pass.  We stopped at Olallie Campground, where we had never been before.   We will for sure go back there.  And camp. With the trailer.  It is just plain beautiful there.

These were taken at the upper level campground:

Then we left the McKenzie and started driving towards Sisters.  I took several pictures by holding my camera out the window.  I lucked out; some of them turned out well.  But Cary froze.  Sorry, honey.  I will be posting some more photos and information about this on my Central Oregon website soon.  http://ogocaj25.blogspot.com/

 I think this is Potato Hill.  
There is a snowpark there.

We finally found a good place to stop and take some more pictures at the Mt. Washington Viewpoint.
