In and Around Klamath Falls

Wood River Wetlands Trail

We spent five days and nights living in Klamath Falls after our disastrous deer strike on Thursday July 28th.  We spent our nights in our motor home where it was towed, Excel Auto Body, and our days visiting local parks and birding.   

After picking up our rental car on Friday we went birding at two local e-Bird Hot Spots, Lake Ewauna Nature Trail and Moore Park. You can see the lists and photos by clicking on the high-lighted words.

Saturday we drove out to Agency Lake and spent some time birding the Wood River Wetlands, visiting and checking out Train Mountain, and cooling off on the banks of Spring Creek at Collier Memorial State Park.

Sunday we made a return trip to Collier Memorial State Park and hiked the River Loop Trail in the morning and again spent the afternoon on the banks of Spring Creek. Our plan each day was to spend as much time as possible away from the motor home which got very warm in the parking lot on the exposed south side of the body shop.

Monday we made a trip to Dunsmuir, California and to the Railroad Park Resort to deliver cake and gifts to grandson Bobby for his birthday. We had a nice brunch there and a good hike at the near by Hedge Creek Falls Trail.  Then we returned to Klamath Falls for the night.

Tuesday we packed up our rental car, a Kia Soul, said a sad good-by to Serenity our motor-home, and drove home to Salem where we will wait out the time it takes for repairs to be complete.
