The Oregon Dunes

WCXC is back, albeit on a very limited basis while I make a living and write a book about spending a few months living on a mile-wide British island. (More on that later.) Still, adventures are being had and it’s time to get some photos up.

A few days ago, Greg, his wife, Abbey, and I, went to the Oregon Dunes in southwestern Oregon. See the photos after the jump. It was nice camping there, if a bit noisy.

This is the Klamath River, which we explored on the way up to Oregon.

We witnessed this massive looking fire raging along the Klamath. Look at how tiny those helicopter water buckets look!

There were more crazy fires on the way home. This was the Lodge Lightning Complex fire along 101 south of Leggett.
