Sunday ride to Ada

Marilyn at Ada Park on the cove where Mike and Monica used to live on Siltcoos Lake. They spent many happy hours canoeing there.
                                                      My favorite stretch of the ride.
                                                             Marilyn was loving it.

Metolius River Camping

We took the first camping trip of the year to the Metolius River in central Oregon.

It is warm and dry over there. 

There are miles of hiking trails in the Ponderosa Pine forest.

                  Water was really gushing and wildflowers were at their peak. Birding was outstanding!
