As we start the inevitable and unavoidable process of getting ready to roll, the time to document our time here at Heyburn has arrived. We have had a wonderful time here with great people, wonderful scenery, and best of all family. I will begin with our campsite home for the past two months.
Wow, another site in the woods to die for! The site itself is quite large with a lot of privacy in an area reserved for volunteers. We are surrounded by tall pines,firs, douglas firs, hemlock, tamarac and many other trees. We also have many guests (or maybe we are the guests). So far we have been visited by a wolf, a young cow moose, and a few deer. Unfortunately the camera has not learned to take pictures by itself and I sit or stand just staring but will try to do better so that I have pictures to share.
We saw many of the local inhabitants every day. So many of them in fact that we had to be extra cautious when driving.
I am sure that the thing we will remember most about this park is the ever changing profusion of wildflowers. We saw hundreds of varieties of which many only lasted a week or so while others bloomed the entire time we were here.
Elaine spent 20 hours per week assisting park visitors and collecting park fees.
Gordon occupied himself a similar amount of time fixing tools and making cabinets, shelves, and this bed for one of the rental cottages at the park’s maintenance building.
When we weren’t working or off seeing family there were plenty of things to keep us busy.
Just two more images of this wonderful place.
