Oregon Trip

June 27th, 2011

Here are a few photos of my trip checking out the Chetco in Brookings, Or. and the Noyo in Ca.

The Noyo was a surprise. To not have to pay launch fees, I went in the evening as a gardener told me the pay collectors go home at four thirty. I try not to pay, mostly because of old time principle. Anyway, the important thing

was I went from five thirty to around eight thirty. no one else on the water and real nice calm water, almost like a lake. Quite a few big birds were in the trees, getting ready to roast for the night.

The Chetco had a lot of gravel bars that were fun to go down, but had to do a lot of walking on the way back. My legs are still hurting from that, walking over all the round rocks, under water, have to look at it as a lot of good exercise, owee though, I don’t remember things hurting like this, not too long ago. :O)

The Noyo pics start with the gull pic. The bridge is one of the Skunk train crossings.

Had a good trip.
