Sister's Creekside Park Campground
The town of Sister's sits at just over 3000 ft elevation with a growing population of 2000. Hiking, biking and horse back riding are very popular here. Today we'll be doing none of that though.
It's just a few days before 4th of July and the entire town is decorated Red, White and Blue.
This is a popular tourist stop also so there are many shops to venture through.
I think Sister's gets the award for most and prettiest flowers. It's also a very RV friendly town. It may be small, but there is ample parking all around. If you simply drive around the backside of some of the businesses there are RV parking areas all around.
This town reminds me of Placerville. Ya know, people casually walking or riding their horses through town.
Have you seen a 5th wheel towing set-up like this before?
We stopped in at Cascade Street Distillery for some sampling. I went on Groupon and got a great deal for the 4 of us! 55% Off!
Tomorrow we'll get up early for a drive on the McKenzie Santiam Pass Scenic Byway Loop.
The views from up here go on forever. There is a plaque inside explaining the area.
There are different sized windows around the structure showing you the different mountains.
Each one shows you one peak and tells you the name of it. Really cool.
Up on the roof is a bronze plaque pointing out the direction of all the peaks as well.
It's hard to tell in the photo above, but the depression is the lava gutter.
The black lava, bright blue sky and the green of the trees really popped.
Taking a short break. My brother Steve, and sister-in-law, Diane.
There were lots of "ghost" trees too. Their bleached bodies again making a start contrast of color.
View back towards the observatory from the trail.
The peaks of the Three Sisters. They are nicknamed Faith (North); Hope (Middle); and Charity (South).
It was a nice trail and pretty shady most of the way. Just a little humid.
How pretty is this? Oregon has some of the prettiest waterfalls!
Some ducking and climbing involved. Gotta be careful on these roots too.
It was a long day. Time for some wings, burgers and beer tasting at Three Creeks Brewery.
Steve and Diane will leave us tomorrow and head towards the Columbia River and the Washington Coast before joining back up with us and more friends in Hoodsport, WA in August.
See ya guys later. It's been a fun 2 months!!
