While Jeanette is in California visiting grandson Bobby and family, Buster and I are batch’n it and have taken off in the motorhome for a few days of camping and birding on the coast. What I didn’t take into account was the possibility of closed campgrounds due to government shut-down. This sign on the restroom at Tahkenitch Creek Trailhead says it all---closed! I didn’t actually see the sign until after our hike, and it didn’t come to bear on the situation until I left the trailhead to go to a campground. I was expecting to stay at Lagoon Campground, off of the Siltcoos River, but it and all the other National Forest Campgrounds where closed. I don’t much care for the taste of Tea!
