Here are a few pics from our two night camping trip over Memorial Day weekend. I will be putting all new trip reports on our website as I have better control over the pic size and quality but will continue to post as much as I can here as well.

We rarely camp over Memorial Day weekend as it draws out the fair weather campers and the highways are a zoo as well as the state parks. But this weekend we decided to head out to dispersed camp at the Hole in the Ground south east of Bend with a coworker and his family. Since Descend on Bend was cancelled this year due to Covid, this would be our chance to visit this stunning area and show our friends what the area had to offer.

What made the weekend even better was our 15 year old twins agreed to come along as they have been cooped up in the house due to school being shut down. We packed up and left around 11:00am on Friday and headed south on I5 to Eugene and then east on highway 58. It rained a bit over the pass but you could see the clear skies that waited for us on the other side of the mountains.

They always enjoy the trip once we get them in the van. We have continued to camp on BLM and National Forest land all year. We almost always camp alone and only stop for gas when needed. Self contained and self isolating. There is no curfew in the forest Smile
