Our spot is not real spacious but we got into it with no problem. It has full hookups and a fire ring that we have used every day.
Yesterday we went for a hike around the small lake near the campground. Beautiful trees, clear water chirping birds. Lake Marie was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930's and has a one mile trail around the lake.
Next, we took a drive up the Umpqua River on Highway 38 to the Dean Creek Viewing Area. Way more than I expected.
Sure enough-- a herd of elk were hanging out and eating a lot of grass.
After a picnic along the river, we went back to Charlestown south past Coos Bay and checked out some of the viewing observation points along the NW Oceanview Drive along the coastal road not far from Agate State Beach. We found one with a lot of seals.
Friends of the Southern Oregon Coastal National Wildlife Rufuges had some scopes set up and a display showing the kinds and type of seals we were looking watching.
At another stop in the area, we saw more seals
Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles! Until next time...
