Tuesday August 6, 2019 Grande Ronde River Troy Oregon
Up the river today
I got up leisurely this morning and eventually made it down to Troy to my spot. I hung around there talking to a couple people then did what I’d planned for the day. I drove up the river along this road, headed to the bridge at 7 miles where I used to put in my boat and flout down to Troy most every afternoon and it was much fun.
Seven mile bridge
When I stop I usually walk around any camp spots and found this new hat on the ground near a campfire pit. My size and brand new with the tag. I haven’t had to buy any hats for a long time now as people often loose them on the river.
I’ve launched here too
My plan is to post this blog this evening and then take a drive up to Eden beach for an evening wildlife viewing ride. That means I’ll likely get back about dark if I do it right.
Without doing a shuttle the river isn’t easy to do as it flows pretty fast and it’s not easy to walk up the river when you have to get out for shallow spots. That’s just the way nature is, so you have to flow with it.
So my thoughts are I should get back to the Jarbidge area on the way home. I should wait another day as this hot spell is about to break, but I’m still undecided. I might take off tomorrow or not but I will be heading that way soon.
Nice day on the Grande Ronde River. Now on to town to post this blog and then off for that wildlife ride later.
