|Our little RV and "home" for the weekend!|
Seven miles up a narrow gravel road led us to a tiny tent campground that we were told was rarely used. Sitting inside, seeing the bugs outside swarming the windows of our RV, we understood why this out of the way spot was often vacant. After dinner, we drove to Resurrection Creek Trailhead. I'd read there was free campsites on either side of the trailhead. From May 15 to July 15 the area is open to dredge gold mining, but the rest of the summer the place was pretty much empty.
It was heaven! We hiked, found some geocaches, dropped a line in and attempted to fish, and enjoyed the solitude in this lovely empty boondocking campground.

When my husband decided to take a nap, I knitted river side!
The only "issue" was that, the reason you are not allowed to dredge the river for gold after July 15 is due to the salmon. They begin spawning middle of July through the end of summer. After spawning, they die. There were several dead Chum (humpback) and Red Salmon. Our dog LOVED them! She rolled in several of the dead fish she found, and even brought me a smelly fish head, bless her heart! She got a bath as soon as we got home!
So, we are all caught up, right?
We've been busy, and I've been taking pictures!
I'll be back, I promise!!!
