Our 2014 trip to Oregon, we’ve now done it for three summers running, was a big one. Gone nearly two full months, we left in the Jeep and returned with the Jeep and an R-pod trailer. There were many highlights from our two months away, these are just some of them. Adventures listed, of course,Continue reading “A Trip to Oregon… and Back Again”
We’ve had a bit of a disappearing act. I was going along nicely, posting something every day as we travelled across the country and them BAM! no posts. Don’t you hate it when someone uses punctuation in the middle of a sentence. Anyway…. We arrived in Oregon a few days ago, picked up our newContinue reading “Off the Grid and Back Again”
Looking Up, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Taken at the Riverside Campground in the Metolius River area near Camp Sherman, Oregon with the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT.
Pups, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The pups love camping. Weston is on his lead here, but he got to be off of it. They both did. They were worn out by the time we got home. Two hikes in one day just about did the little souls in. They made it though, and actually wantedContinue reading “Pups”
The Four of Us, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Here we all are. Sandy, Vicki, Karen (via the glasses), and me. You can’t see us very well really, but you can. Sandy would be the one hamming it up. You can barely make us all out, except Karen of course, who’s glasses and head came outContinue reading “The Four of Us”
Dinner, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. No need to elaborate on this much. So tasty. Nothing like eating food cooked over a fire.
Potato Oven, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Mostly we ate at Vicki and Sandy’s cabin. Sort of cheesy as camping goes, but easy. One night, however, we decided we needed to cook at our campsite. The menu… baked potatoes, in the fire, steak cooked on the fire, and corn on the cob, also cooked on theContinue reading “Potato Oven”
Ponderosa, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. It’s amazing in the Camp Sherman area of the Metolius. I love it there. My family went there nearly every year for awhile when I was young. I learned to fly fish on this river and loved every moment we spent there. Being there as an adult brings back allContinue reading “Ponderosa”
Riverside Site, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. I’ve been remiss. No blogging out of me for quite some time. I could go on and on with excuses, but I won’t. I will just dive right back in and do a monster blog summing up the last couple of weeks in our lives. We went camping atContinue reading “Riverside Site”
Hunting Chipmunks, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The mighty chipmunk hunters in action. Sticking their heads in the very hole those pesky chipmunks were sticking their heads out of a second ago.
It’s Here Somewhere… I Know It!, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Weston loves to chase chipmunks when we go camping. He always corners them under someone’s car. It’s cute. His tale, all curled forward like that, and him down on his front paws is called play stance. He was in it a lot at Davis.
Hanging Around, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Taken with the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT.
Wow. Busy. That’s all I can say. We just got back from camping at Davis Lake with family. We were there four days. A good time was had by all, including the pups. On Saturday, before we left for the camp ground, we attended the wedding of one of my closest friends. I acted asContinue reading “So Much To Tell”

Camp Food, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. In honor of our upcoming camping trip to Davis Lake I thought I’d post one I took while camping at Davis Lake in 2007. Taken with the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT.
Our View, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We had such a great time camping with the HSWH. We loved hanging out, spending time, and getting to know Don’s kids and their families better. They’re such great people and we’re thankful they invited us along and let us in on the annual camping trip. Thanks so muchContinue reading “Time Away”
Chai, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Karen made chai, of course, and used this HUGE cup that Kev brought along. This thing was big, and Karen was one happy girl.
Biscuits and Gravy, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Camping with Mom and Don is amazing. Someone says, oh, I’d like biscuits and gravy and whallah… biscuits and gravy. Not to mention the sausage, bacon, and good camp coffee that went with it.
Morning, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Sunday, the last day, I woke up earlier than I had been and was able to catch the sunrise and the mist out over the lake. It was quiet, and absolutely stunning.
Sunset at Davis Lake, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Our last evening brought us a fantastic dinner of ribs cooked over a fire, cowboy beans heated up on the camp stove, and a beautiful sunset.
Kevin and Karen, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Later on Saturday Karen and Kevin took the kayak back down the river to the lake to explore and paddle around a bit. I think Kev liked it.
Perched, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. I took some random shots while we were at Davis Lake. This is one of them. I loved how this log was just sort of perched there, bleached out by the sun.
Mom and Me, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. On Saturday Mom and I took the kayak for a spin. We went out toward the main body of the lake, then turned around and headed up stream with the intent of taking the kayak back to the camp site. We almost made it, but couldn’t quite getContinue reading “Mom and Me”
Orange Fire, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Friday had us hiking around enjoying some of the beautiful wild flowers, trees, and scenery in the area.
