Big Foot Country

Yesterday we took the 96 North for 3 hours of windy roads to Happy Camp, CA. The town is about halfway to Ashland, OR (our destination for the week) and I couldn’t resist stopping in a place called Happy Camp. We had no idea that it was also Bigfoot Country.


Curtis didn’t pick up on any signs of Sasquatch, and went for a rare dip in the river.


We stayed the night at the Curly Jack Campground in the Klamath National Forest. The campground just opened for the season the night before so it was completely empty.


Normally the campground is $15 a night, but there wasn’t anyone around, and the iron ranger wasn’t particularly secure. So I filled out the envelope and wrote a check, but kept it in the trailer in case someone came around. We’re still here for another hour or so, but it looks like we got a free night!

Dinner Last Night:
Dinner last night was an off the charts Vegan Richa test recipe that I can’t share. I will share one we had last week but didn’t include in the blog because I didn’t think a recipe would make sense at the bottom of our property listing.

General Tso’s Tofu. I’m not a big tofu fan, but this is done right. It’s thin and crispy and delicious. I was a little concerned about the amount of sugar, but decided to trust the author since I’ve had good luck with her recipes before. Recipe recommended!

    Ha! Never knew that place existed. Welcome to (almost) Oregon. It’s getting real nice here.

      It started raining the second we crossed the border! Typical PNW!
