Today was a straight (well actually anything but straight) run down OR 22 to Bent. Although nothing like the passes in Montana, OR 22 goes through Santiam Pass at 4817'. I hit light snow just before the pass, and there was 3'-4' feet on the sides of the road. The roads were clear but wet...

I have an appointment to have the tires replaced on the RAV4 tomorrow & am spending two nights at Tumalo State Park, about 5 miles north of the Toyota dealership. Oregon's parks switch from the less expensive "Discovery" mode to "Premier," on May 1st, raising the price for a full service site from $22.00 to $26.00, still a pretty good deal. I'm in site B13, a stone's throw from the solar showers. I wonder if the water stays hot until the morning? I guess I'll find out - I'm a morning shower person and have never been able to adjust to taking one in the evening.
Toyota Bend ( I guess that is a better name than "Bend Toyota") said they would call me after 3:00 to let me know if the tires came in - no phone call. I guess I'll just show up for my appointment.
I grilled for the first time. I made a couple of hamburgers, & fresh green beans but while at the store saw some good looking shish kabobs - I think I'll pick one up for tomorrow. The Coleman combination grill/stove worked well. After dinner I took a walk to the river that runs along side the campground.
