A new part of Oregon

Cedar Creek Fish Hatchery
Hebo, OR

George and I hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day weekend.
We take the time to remember the fallen who died for our country.

We left southern Oregon and drove the 286 miles north to Hebo, OR.
It was an uneventful drive over Grant's Pass on I-5.
Our GPS took us up through Eugene, and then eventually onto route 22.
Cedar Creek fish hatchery is right on route 22, about a mile from 101.

It rained the whole day, but it made for some nice views of the fog on the mountaintops.
We had to unhook and get set up in the rain, but oh well :-)

We will be here at the hatchery for the summer. 
Among our duties will be to maintain the grounds, including cutting the grass,
maintaining the flower beds by our site and the pond.
We will get to greet visitors, answer questions, and let any children feed the mature trout.
There is some minor cleaning of the office and public areas as well.

Our site is right on the hatchery grounds, in between the office and hatchery ponds.

Tomorrow we learn our duties.
Looks like it is going to be an interesting gig!

It's also supposed to get sunny here by the end of the week..
there IS sun in Oregon :-)


  1. Looks like a beautiful site and an interesting place to work. Shouldn't be too hot there and that's what summer wheels are for, to get away from the heat. Looking forward to reading all about it.

  2. Well look at you. All settled in. It was nice visiting with you today and we are looking forward to a day trip over there to meet you in person. We aren't Casino people but if you are, on your day off, there is a very nice Casino, Spirit Mountain Casino,Grande Rhonde, 25 miles from you. We are all looking forward to the nice weather that is coming.

  3. Looks like a great place to hunker down for the summer. Everything looks so green!

  4. What a wonderful place to be for the summer. Sounds like a really great work camping job. Envious! :-) Wish we had thought about doing something like that!

  5. We have friends who worked summers at a fish hatchery for many years. They really liked it, hoping you two will too.

  6. Seems a little fishy to me! I Look forward to reading about your experience there, our son lives in Portland and I am sure we would enjoy the area.

  7. I assume all the fresh fish you can eat? ;c)

  8. Looks like a great gig, will be looking forward to hearing all about it!

  9. Lovely surroundings. Looking forward to hearing about your new gig.

  10. Just going back and reading some blogs I have missed. I'll be following along closely with your summer gig. I always thought if I volunteered somewhere it would be a fish hatchery. We love to visit as they are usually very pretty locations without swarms of people. Enjoy your stay.
