Finally! Two days in a row with solid sunshine and no rain. And the forecast for Thursday is 82 degrees. I didn’t think I would ever thaw out.
Campers have been pretty scarce these last few weeks at Tollbridge County Park. Rosie has kept busy with site cleanup. I have helped (a little bit) our co-host, Jim Schrankel, with the wood pile. Jim LOVES splitting firewood. He is a man possessed with turning out the perfect piece of wood to put into a fire. I will have to get a picture of him with the wood splitting machine for a future blog. Yesterday our county manager, Cory, cleared a path in the woods so Jim could get to a downed tree. The tree has been down for about 2 years so the wood should be nice and dry. Jim will start getting it out next week.
We took some pictures today on our way into Hood River for shopping. Here is a fresh picture of Mt. Hood:
The pear orchards are blooming:
Here is a picture of a local barn with a special feature. This person has way too much time on their hands:
Other than that, things have been pretty uneventful here. The weather improving should bring in more campers, which will add some excitement to our lives.
