Good-Bye Salt Lake; Oregon Here We Come!

On our way to Oregon, we parked at Juniper Reservoir RV Park outside Lakeview, Oregon on June 1st.  The day before yesterday (May 30th) we left Salt Lake City (SLC) and traveled to Winnemucca, Nevada and stayed overnight.

We had a blast in SLC.

The SLC area has changed so much since I lived there in 1975 on a NMSU work-study program with Kennecott Copper Corp. SLC was just a little bit bigger than Albuquerque back then then; but when the 2002 Olympics came to town, SLC took off like a rocket.  Now it’s one big metropolis from Orem to Ogden.

It was great attending Patrick’s wedding…

The Juniper Reservoir Park is situated on a 5,000 acre ranch about 6 miles north of Lakeview. It has a number of pull-thru spaces with nice views of the forest and mountains that surround the campground.

We mostly hung out and walked around. I also washed the front of the RV so it didn’t look so messy. We saw lots of pretty birds–large groups of pelicans–flying in and out of the park and on the water.

As we travel through Oregon, Pam and I can’t stop believing–is this a dream–how lucky we are to wander around like this! We have nothing to do but enjoy the beauty that surrounds us where ever we go. Believe me, life is good!
