After we left Eagles Nest RV Park, we stayed for two nights at Crater Lake RV Park, where we had workamped during the summer of 2012. It was great to see the owners, Pam and Jim Lee again. A lot has changed since we last saw them. The park looked great due to the hard work of Ron who has pretty much taken over the duties of the day to day operations. Jim had spent several weeks at the VA Hospital in Vancouver and Portland due some medical issues, so Ron had to take over the responsibility of running the park.
Of course I just had to go down to the Rogue River to see where I learned to Fly Fish. The river was rushing due to the snow run off from the winter. I was amazed at how much water was flowing down the river. It’s a beautiful place to just sit and observe nature at it’s best. Here are a couple of pics of the park and the Mighty Rogue River.
We arrived at our final destination, Crane Prairie RV Resort and Park on April 13th to start our summer Workamp job. As I drove Dreamscape around the park to find our parking spot, I was amazed at all of the pine trees that had blown down due to a severe storm they experienced last December. I also noticed the same thing driving around the north side of Crater Lake over to Hwy 97. It must have been a very powerful storm that rolled through.
Here are a couple of pics showing our location and what happened the day after we arrived, that white stuff that we are not that familiar with!
In the bottom photo of Crane Prairie Reservoir, you see 3 distinct mountains. The left one is South Sister, Broken Top and Mt. Bachelor to the right. What a gorgeous scene to wake up to each morning!
We will be getting the park cleaned up and the Lodge stocked with all kinds of goodies from fishing lures to groceries. Plus getting all of the rental boats cleaned up and moored in the lake. The park officially opens on April 22 at 7 am, so we have a lot to do to prepare for that.
Dreamscape ran flawlessly on our trip from Murrieta to Bend, 1,350 + miles total. No other incidents to report except all of the good times we had along the way. Our Bus Nut friends that we were able to spend time with during this trip were very memorable. We are so blessed to be able to call all of them, friends! They made the trip so much more enjoyable.
Almost forgot, while we were in Parker, AZ I was coming out of Walmart and saw some dear Bus Nut friends, Arlette and Bill Klein. We last saw them at Quartzsite in January. Small world for sure!
It’s going to be an unforgettable summer as we Workamp in the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
