We have made the most of the ever so brief dry season in the Pacific Northwest and did two extended weekend campouts back to back.
July 4th weekend saw us traveling to the tiny town of Fossil, Oregon for the Wheeler County Bluegrass Festival with about 20 other VW's from the WetWesties. This was the first time I've been to this part of Oregon and the scenery was fascinating. Lots of rolling hills with just a tint of green, canyons, wheat fields and windmill farms.
Oh yeah, the music was great. Besides stuff going on in town all day long, the entire camping area was filled with lots of people doing impromptu jam sessions. The music literally surrounded us. Saturday there was a great car show which had all the guys drooling. And, true to our tradition, there was a great potluck. VW folks sure know how to eat.
Stay tuned for pt. 2 -- Mt. Rainier.
