Done for the day we headed on to Oakridge, Oregon for the night and a stay again at a Best Western.

 

Gas today was down to $2.959,

 

Dinner tonight was a very small little local café named Manning’s.  It probably only seats about twenty and 18 were there when we went in.  A couple who were sitting at a larger table asked us to join them.  It turned out nearly everyone in the place were locals, including this elderly couple.  We talked about the great waterfalls we had seen and he told us of more.  They had lived in Oakridge for 59 years and he had logged the area most of those.  Being a hunter and fisherman, he knew every turn and every tree and creek for miles.  Fun to sit and chat with.  The food was super great too. 

 

Waterfalls so far = 10, bridges = 2, tunnels = 2 

 

And I don't usually take shots that are designed to draw "Cheap ahhhhs", but the baskets of flowers hanging near the front of the motel just required a few shots.

Oh, don't kid yourself, Roger! You most certainly do take shots that are designed for cheap "ahhs!" LOL
