Had some time Mon/Tues to get out. Headed to Mazama and found my favorite campsite off Goat creek rd. No one around.
Just installed my arb awning...really appreciated how simple it is to use and how effective it is. Had a bit of rain on Tuesday morning and did not notice due to being under the awning.
I am addicted to using my ZZ manufacturing wood burning stoves...the eagle is no longer made but I find them on Ebay every so often. I have 3 :) Work great and will burn anything on the ground around the campsite. Put out a ton of heat.
Hung out for a few hours in the morning listening to the creek and reading.
Headed out to find a couple gold mines in the area.
Searched for the Molly mine and just found holes. Was just enjoying driving on random roads and the views.
A nice loop with some great views is NF-400 rd that turns into Long creek rd. ( I think) Great views and met some hikers with a very energetic dog. He liked to dig.
Parked at Goat Creek snowmobile park and went for a easy 10 mile mt bike ride. Late lunch at Mazama store and then home.
