We took the short trip to Lincoln City, OR this
weekend for some yurt camping at
Devils Lake. Tent camping in
the spring in Oregon is always a risk (unless you like lying in mud), so
rather than stay home we've started exploring the various state parks that
offer yurts. Hardly roughing
it, but we still cook outside, make s'mores by the campfire, and explore the
waterways in our canoe. I also took some pictures
with my new Nikon Coolpix 2500 digital camera.
Devils Lake was much more interesting than I expected. The fishing was great -
we landed 6 decent size hatchery rainbows (all catch and release with the
exception of one poor guy that didn't survive a hook swallow - we gave him to
our camping neighbors).
