Umpqua Riverfront RV Park
Our time here is almost over and then we'll be moving on to the coast. We got a call from Curt and Glenda that they can meet us for a day before they move north. We're always glad to get some Curt and Glenda time in when we can especially since we had to cancel our week or two time together while we had some unexpected repairs done. Curt suggested meeting at the Mt. Pisgah Arboretum for some hiking.
On the way we enjoyed the views as usual.
It was pretty hot and a little muggy but we enjoyed the shady trails around the park.
We took a short drive to the Hop Valley Brewing Company for some lunch. It was a nice day.
On one of the last days we took a day trip to visit some waterfalls with Steve and Diane. There is the North Umpqua Trail that follows the North Umpqua River for 79 miles. The parts of it we could see followed the river closely and took you past many waterfalls and small lakes. What a great trail to hike.

North Umpqua River. Very cold and much clearer than the part of the Umpqua that we are on.
Still some Dogwoods blooming here.
Human Waste? Uh, yuck. I won't be going in!
Many of the pools hang over the edge of the hillside above the river.
Some of these springs can reach up to 108 degrees so beware.
Steve decided to check and see how hot 108 feels like ;-)
One last time on the Umpqua River before we leave.
My brother, Steve, and Red out on the water.
Nice one Red!
Nice one Steve!
It's been a great couple of weeks fishing with family and friends. Looking forward to some time on the coast and some good seafood!
