I’ve lost my zeal for the Oregon Brewers Festival (perhaps next year I’ll take the Thursday off and go right at noon, before the hoards descend).
So this past weekend Heather and I got out of town. We’ve nearly exhausted the close-to-town campgrounds on the Oregon side of the river, so we decided to head north. North and east, to a small campground a few miles off Washington Highway 14 between Stevenson and Bingen called Moss Creek. We didn’t know much about it, as descriptions on the internet are scarce and it’s not mentioned in our one Washington camping book, but they take reservations so that decided us.
Though not the best campground we’ve stayed at, Moss Creek proved convenient to exploring The Gorge, Mount Adams, the Big Lava Bed, and other sights. We experienced fantastic weather for the first time in our half dozen or so camping trips together, and we branched out in our camp cookery: we baked biscuits and rolls on the campfire; and I can now unequivocally state that one thing our previous camping experiences lacked was fresh baked bread!
As usual Heather has blogged our latest adventure, with map (stolen above), photos and a deft sense of humor, at Mile73:
