A night in Umpqua National Forest on the way to Crater Lake! Father and Son Motorcycle Tour 2013!

Stumbling across the BMW MOA Rally in Salem was a real treat, but it was time for us to get moving again!

We headed south on the Pacific Highway I-5, through Eugene and exited at Cottage Grove, riding east towards Dorena Lake where I’d heard there was a very nice campground.

Unfortunately it was full, but we still had some light left so continued on until we entered the Umpqua National Forest where there were many primitive campsites to choose from.

Found a great spot next to a beautiful clear running stream just as the sun was going down. We’d had a late lunch / early dinner in Cottage Grove so I only cooked up a light meal for dinner, then we hit the sack, read a few pages and called it a night!

Next morning my little guy wanted to see if there were any fish biting-

Didn’t catch anything but he had fun all the same

Gorgeous spot!

We enjoyed a bit of a lazy morning as it wasn’t very far from here to Crater Lake National Park. Time to load up the Land Yacht!

A quick pic before we hit the road!
