Leaving Oregon, Casino Camping and Heading to the Sand Dunes

In today’s video, we leave the Columbia River Gorge and head into East Oregon before making it to Idaho. Our last stop in Oregon is a one night stay at the Wildhorse Resort and Casino in Pendleton. We didn’t want to boondock because the temperatures were in the high 90s so a full hook-up site was appreciated. We leave Oregon for this trip and head to Bruneau Dunes State Park in Idaho where it is hot hot hot! Luckily we still have electric! We’re looking forward to climbing those dunes.

Finally, Steve gives a quick how-to of how he sets up at a new campsite before we go for a quick hike to Elowah Falls (our first fall of many to come!).

So Many Waterfalls & Last Night in Bend

In today’s video, we take McKenzie Pass Highway through a bunch of lava rock to go and see some waterfall not far from the Sisters. The first waterfall hike was Proxy Falls, which is our absolute favorite falls hike we’ve ever seen. The Lower Falls was AMAZING! We highly recommend it! We then stop and see Sahalie Falls which was roaring and took the quick walk down to Koosah Falls as well. We love waterfalls! Lastly, we share our last night in Bend before we head West towards the Coast.

Steve made some great waterfall photography and shares some tips on how to photograph waterfalls. The next stop is Smith Rock State Park where we hike Misery Ridge and walk along the River Trail. The rock formations were awesome!
