Lots of Deer

Dave & I did a bit of exploring this morning, unfortunately we didn’t take a camera with us…oops. We went over to the store, it is closed Monday and Tuesday so we went up to the Lodge. Very nice and quite large with a big deck on the lake side. After that it was a relax and read day along with taking a bunch of photos and video of the deer wandering by our campsite. We thought the Chehalis Thousand Trails had a lot of deer, but they seem to be every where here. The squirrels also made an appearance so we caught a few shots of them too. Cheyenne doesn’t seem to care much about the deer, although they seem to care a lot about her! She just wants to watch the squirrels.

We both really enjoy this area. The landscape is more open, a little more desert-like than the evergreen forests of the Oregon coast. Not that we have anything against evergreen forests, but high desert is our favorite. This is more of a cross between the two. One person told us this park was “interesting”, another couple told me it was their favorite park. I guess the old saying, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” is true.
