Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Nature at its best.

   It was kinda warm..low 60's so Clay & I drove to the mountains today. Checking out yet more future campgrounds & boat launch pads. Found a couple we think may just be fine. One was at Willow Lake.  The lake looked really green.. because there is a species of algae in there blooming right now. Fishing is fine there catch & release, but the water not good for dogs to be swimming in or anyone drinking this time of the year. When the weather warms the "flowering blue algae" will die and then it will be ok to swim  and play in..The campgrounds are very nice & the campsite drinking water is funished by an artesian well.. I was a bit concerned but re assured by the camp host ... but even so   any tent camping is  a few  months away. 
Further up the road is a turn off to get to LostCreek Lake State Park very nice and clean, just North of Butte Falls,  Oregon. (a very quaint  and friendly logging town. ) We stopped for a bite to eat there and the cafe owner was very nice.. Good small town hospitality... of years gone by...We felt as though we stepped back in time....On our way home we got this great view of Mt McLoughlin.  A very Nice day.  both places are less than 90 miles from our home.  I do hope the summer allows us to camp at one of these nice spots.
