Watery Wednesday: View of the Cougar Reservoir Lagoon

Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy ~ Kathy Matthews

Last weekend, we were not far from Cougar Reservoir, so we drove the ten miles in from the McKenzie Highway to take a look.  This is a beautiful and quiet place to boat and camp.  It never seems to be very busy on the lake.   

To learn more about Cougar Dam, I did a blog post about it's ins and outs, and you can read more about it by "CLICKING HERE".   I love the McKenzie Valley so much that I devoted a whole website to it ... it needs updating, but is still full of info: The McKenzie River Valley of Oregon.

Anyway, we parked at the parking area for Terwilliger Hot Springs and walked down the beautiful trail by the lagoon.  This is what I think of when I think of Oregon:

Beautiful photos, Kathy.
I watched your slide show, too. Nice new trailer, and I love your moon-shots.
If you're ever out in an RV park and you run across a BC couple named Clint and Maria Davies, tell them big sister Kay said hi. They have a truck & 5th wheel with, of course, BC plates.
