We have found a new half-way spot between here and Tri-Cities to camp. We stayed at Cove Palisades State Park on our way up on Thursday and then back last night. I regret that we had so little time camping.
The park is situated on Lake Billy Chinook, a reservoir at the confluence of the Crooked River and the Deschutes.
Thursday night we spent down at the bottom of the canyon, in the Deschutes campground. It is the end of the season and the campground was nearly empty.
This is the view at sunset behind our campsite.
No cell phone reception. No internet. Lots of quiet and desert air.
We will be back.
