Most of that route is on the Sprague River Road, between the little town of Chiloquin and US 140. So the Sprague River Road was what we wanted to try out. Turns out the road was fine, although our GPS (on truck setting) kept beeping warnings of "sharp curve ahead." We followed, briefly, the Williamson River and then the Sprague River. Here are some of the sights we saw:
Along the Sprague River:
|Basalt wall across the road.|
|More basalt. So much of Oregon is volcanic in origin.|
Fly fishing in the Williamson River:
And of course, we needed gas, and found the Kla-Mo-Yah Casino and its Crater Lake Junction Travel Center, the best, the cheapest (and the only) gas station for miles around. The casino is operated by the Klamath, Modoc and Yahooskin (I kid you not) tribes, to very bad reviews on the Internet. But the gas price, needless to say, is the best in the neighborhood.
And that was this day in ... Our Life on Wheels.
