As we made our decision to begin trekking east today we set our sights on Grants Pass, Oregon in the southwestern part of the state for an overnight. We arrived at Schroeder County Park mid afternoon, chose the nicely hedged and shaded Site 23, and self registered. Remembering a story our friend Gary told about visiting Grants Pass on a business trip and taking a little time off for a photo shoot, we went in search of some photo ops. We headed out Rogue River Road and ended up at John F Fleming Memorial Park next to the Rogue River Bridge where Davis “Coyote” Evans and son established a ferry in 1851 and where we took some photos and found two geocaches this evening as well. Although we have no idea where Gary went for his photo shoot, we appreciate his inspiring us to embarking on a little outing today!
