La Verna County Park, Fairfield, Oregon – 20th July

It doesn’t always pay to take the scenic route. We found this to our cost as we headed for the Oregon coast on Monday. According to the map the road had several recreation areas (parks) en route.  Our plan was to choose one of these for the night.  However, it turned out that the whole forest area was a recreational area, and for 35 miles of narrow, winding roads we met three vehicles. No houses, no campsites. When, eventually we found a campground it was a nice location beside a river but that other occupants looked like they lived there a long time, had lots of dogs and babies running around in nothing but disposable nappies.  They looked at us like we were “real strange”. 

No photos – we weren’t sure if the natives would take the camera.
