We had planned on camping at Shadow Bay on Waldo Lake, but one step out of the truck led us to believe that someone had called ahead and alerted the mosquitoes to our arrival, "wait until you taste Sara!". So we drove down the road and camped for 2 or 3 nights on the north side of the lake. There were still mosquitoes, but only half as many. We decided that was long enough to be held hostage to the indoors at night and went to look elsewhere. So many campers up there, we had to settle for the big La Pine State CG. Not my favorite. It's like a small town with everyone outside, but we were glad the huge group across the street (and most everyone else) were courteous during the sleeping hours. We went out exploring in the truck during most days. Sara even ventured out on three short trails, which surprised me. I'm sure the trip was good for her, in many ways. I finally made a leap and bought some aluminum liners for our dutch oven. What a gift to the resident dutch oven cleaner! He was skeptical when I talked about them, but no longer. Funny thing is that Jack's Country Store up by Susie's beach house, is where we bought them online.
