Snug As Bears


We were as snug as two bears in a nest under the down comforter this morning despite the cold temperature. But William got up to start the coffee. Darn. The bag of coffee was a bag of whole beans. We rushed around and pulled out of Collier State Park in 45 minutes, looking for coffee.

We stopped at Diamond Lake Junction Cafe. We were the only ones there. The waitress also did the cooking. The food was very good but not very weight watchery. We both ate just half and took the other half in to go boxes. The waitress/cook was not good at addition however and William had to correct her addition on our bill.

After we found an Albertsons in Bend to buy ground coffee (we also ground the bag we had). We went on to Smith Rock State Park outside of Terrebonne. It was really crowded, mostly with rock climbers. Thankfully there was a spot left in the RV parking. We walked from one end of the upper area to the other and all along the Rim trail, stopping to look at the tiny climbers inching their way up the huge rock formations.

After lunch we drove on and stopped at the Peter Skene Ogden State Scenic Viewpoint. Three hundred feet straight down the cliff face. “Watch your dogs. Many dogs have died here.”

It was getting time to stop for the night so we headed to Kah-Nee-Ta in the Warm Springs Indian Reservation. We will soak in the hot springs pool in the morning.
