Doug does not like traveling the main roads and particularly the I5. So we find ways around it. We find ways around the big cities too. We never do Seattle or Portland.
Today we left the casino at Florence, Oregon, made a left at Reedsport and followed Route 38 and then 138 to Sutherlin and the Timberline Escapee park. Pretty route, lots of fall colours.
We hope to visit a few more Escapee parks this winter. This one is gorgeous, all decked our for autumn. We attended their "Friendship Hour" and found the people to be very friendly. Seems like they don't get a lot of Canadians this way. We were like a novelty to them. They asked a lot of questions.

We walked around and took a few pictures of the trees. Wow, eh!
We had been told that there were wild turkey in the park and were witness to this parade of turkey this afternoon. Right behind our rig.
Thanks to our good friend Jeri, we have erased our chalk plans and have decided against traveling to Park Sierra from the north along Route 49. Too treacherous for big rigs. Instead we are going to head to the Escapee park at Pahrump, near Las Vegas with a casino stop in Reno. Perhaps this time we will actually go into Las Vegas and see if we can help them out with their abundance of cash.
