Catherine Creek Oregon State Park Union, Oregon
We left Wallowa on Friday, traveling to LaGrande. We left the RV at Curt's RV for repairs. We ran errands then met Heather and Joshua for lunch. We had Chinese at Josh's request. Our RV was ready by 2 pm and Dwain picked it up while I shopped at Walmart.
We spent the night at Catherine Creek State Park, seven miles out of Union, Oregon. We Park Hosted at Catherine Creek about five years ago. We enjoyed being back. Large pines are throughout the campground. If you are interested in making pine needle baskets, there is a large supply of needles. Catherine Creek SP has about 20 sites. It is a dry campground. However, it does have water faucets in the camp. It has restrooms, but no showers. There is a day use area about a quarter mile up the road. Hiking trails are across the creek.
Saturday morning we traveled to Cove, Oregon, a short distance away. We watched a junior high football game in the rain. Unfortunately our Wallowa team lost, but they played hard. Once the game was over, we were off to the local burger joint and enjoyed a good lunch, saying goodbye to Patrick, Joshua and their parents for a couple of months.
We drove as far as Rufus, Oregon and pulled in beside the Columbia River for the night. Took some beautiful sunsets photos while in the Columbia River Gorge. The wind came up during the night and kept us awake. Dwain measured the mph in the morning at 40. It blew stronger during the night, but he didn't get up to measure it. I wonder why...
On to Adam, Carrie and Lyla's!
