Leaving Santa Cruz, we trek northward, spending a night in Klamath Falls, Oregon and another in Redmond, Oregon, before landing once again in Coeur d ‘Alene, Idaho.
It’s all business this time, as the tenets who had been renting our house for the past umpteen years, decided to quit paying rent, and generally trash the house before skipping off.
Soooo, here we are. Many truckloads of garbage hauled off, lots of cleaning, scrubbing, and raking finds us now actually camping in a real house!
Amazing where life takes us.
I’ve temporarily traded in my camera for a paintbrush, and instead of hiking along beautiful rivers and canyons, we now are getting in our steps pounding the concrete inside of huge big box home improvement stores wandering the miles of aisles in air conditioned comfort.
A real change of scenery for sure.
I’m not planning on documenting this transitional part of our journey, I’m way too busy, and honestly don’t find it that interesting to share with those outside of our immediate family. But that being said, hopefully soon, we will have some opportunities to explore some awesomely beautiful country around these parts, and then I’ll be slinging the camera again and sharing the wonders of nature and rugged splendor.
We really are still alive and kicking…just kicking up different sorts of dust for awhile.
I’ll try to pop in here every once in awhile, hopefully with some birds, or bears, or bees, or some critters or natural wonders to share, but it probably won’t be real frequent.
And for fun, here’s where we were last year at this time. Crater Lake…ah…the memories! The people we met there, the blue lake, and lovely campsite we had.
Hoping everyone is enjoying their own journeys this summer!
And a few links to some past “bear posts” just because someone was asking to see Bears. 🙂

What creeps to treat your property like that. Good luck fixing up the place. And I’d LOVE to see some bear pictures if you do post them sometime.
Thanks SusanElizabeth. Until we meet up with some new bears, I’ve included a few links at the bottom of my recent post that contain Bear pictures from last summer. Check them out!
Thank you!! I love them. There’s a thriving black bear population nearby and we’re just starting to get some bears moving into this area because of it but I’ve yet to come across one. I love the fox photos you have on there too. That’s another favorite animal of mine. Beautiful captures!
I’m so glad you enjoy the animals. I really tried to educate myself about the Grizzlies and the whole Grizzly situation last summer! They are amazingly huge, powerful and awesome majestic animals.
I’ve only seen Grizzlies at the zoo and that’s not how I want to ever see them–your photos are a wonderful. There’s an awesome bear cam here http://explore.org/live-cams/player/brown-bear-salmon-cam-brooks-falls but since you’ve seen many in person in the wild it might not be as amazing for you!
I’m glad to hear from you and think about the work you and Fred are doing.
Hi Catherine, Fred and I are actually having a lot of fun fixing the place up and are settled in for the summer.
