First Camping/Kayaking Trip of 2010

Another furlough day has come and gone.  We got two nice days and boy did we take advantage of them!  We ended up going to River Bend County Park just above Sweet Home with some friends of ours.  Turned out to be a wonderful park (although we never did make it down to the river).  We got a RV site so I could plug in the electric blanket.  Worked out quite well since it was freezing (literally) Friday night.  Friday and Saturday were spent kayaking at Foster Lake.  

I've always thought Foster Lake wouldn't be good for kayaking because of the jet skis and motorboats.  If you stay on the east side though there are some nice arms that appear to be pretty quiet...could be because it's March but I'd be willing to do it again later in the year. Other than a bit of rain on Saturday night, it was a very pleasant trip.  Off to dry the tent out...or lets get real... Andrew is off to dry the tent out!

That looks so nice and peaceful and your pup is too cute!

I think Sweet Home is an area I should probably check out one of these days!

If you live in Oregon definitely! There are great hiking places around there too.
