8/15/12, Dale, OR - Itís already the middle of August. Where have the days gone? Even though itís midsummer in most places, this morning I could feel a touch of fall in the air. A couple of weeks from now, Iíll be tooling through the high desert of southeast Oregon and wish I had a taste of fall.
Tonight, Iím camped 5 miles south of Dale, OR on US-395 in the middle of a short stretch of National Forest.
Most of the morning, the road followed Camis Creek as it wound itís way through the hills. The first few miles were easy, as there was a three feet wide shoulder, but that soon disappeared.
