Queue Memorial Day weekend. Places are opening back up, people are out in full force. We had arranged to stay for five weeks at our current location – a scenic RV park by the river in a little Swiss-style village near Wallowa Lake. With one exception – Memorial Day weekend was booked so we needed to clear out for those three days.
The madness began on Friday as RVs started pulling in. Every spot was full. People were everywhere. Kids on bikes, dogs barking, parties, and barbeques in full swing… We couldn’t get out of there fast enough!
With all of our things packed for a backpacking trip, we hit the road with a trailhead as our destination. But I don’t think either of us was really motivated for backpacking this weekend. I’ve been feeling under the weather and just wanted some quiet and space to relax. So we drove past the road to the trailhead and onward to a campground further into the mountains to check that out as an option for a lazy weekend.
