Sunday Drive

We decided it was such a nice day to go for a drive. Since food appears to be such an important part of our lives we had to include food into the drive. We had been told that a cafe in Union Creek had pie that was really good. This is on Hwy 62 on the way to Crater Lake. So off we ventured towards Union Creek in search of Beckies Restaurant. Union Creek is about 60 miles from Gold Hill. The drive is designated as a Scenic Drive and it is a very scenic drive. We found Beckies Cafe with no problem (couldn't miss it). Had a Hamburger that was very good then I had a piece of Peanut Butter pie and Vicki Indulged in a slice of Cherry pie. The pie was all that the reputation said it was. Stuffed to the gills we headed back towards home.

There are lots of state parks in the area so we stopped at a viewpoint of the upper Rogue River, an area called Natural Bridge.

This was a very interesting area of the river. If in the area it is well worth the short walk to see the river vanish then reappear a short distance downriver.

Since it was getting late we pointed the truck in the direction of Gold Hill and returned home. It was a great day to get out and take a break from the trailer and life in the campground.

Until next time God Bless.
