After getting a good 10 hours of sleep, we felt human again. Since it snowed yesterday and there was a chance of rain up at Crater Lake we did the museum thing today. First on the list was Favell Museum. We looked it up on the internet and got there when it said they opened at 10:00. Turns out they didn’t open until 11:00. As luck would have it there was a trail right by the museum, so we took a walk and killed some time. It wasn’t that great of a trail….no good views of anything. The one thing we managed to get a picture of was this fella as he was fishing.
After the walk we went through the Favell Museum. It is a western/Indian artifact museum. They have the largest arrowhead collection. I have no pictures because they don’t allow anyone to take them. Next, we drove to Klamath Fort. The fort is no longer there but they have a nice little museum there. The significance of this fort is Captain Jack along with 3 others of the Modoc tribe were hung and buried there.
After lunch we decided a nice hike was in order so we set about trying to find a good place. We we unsuccessful. We tried, honestly…..but a lot of the trails are in the upper elevations and are still closed due to snow. We were afraid we would high center the car and we had no cell phone service….bad combination.
We did walk around our resort though. We got in about 2 miles, so we didn’t do too bad. This is a picture of chipmunks/ground squirrel…not exactly sure what it is. They burrow in the ground and bark like prairie dogs, but they are definitely not those. They are cute, whatever species they happen to be.
So now we are chilling with local beverages. Glen got Widmer Brothers Brewing Drop Top Amber Ale….tastes just like beer (guess that is a good thing). I got a bottle of Passive Agressive 2009 Tempranillo made in the Rogue Valley. The name of the wine made us chuckle and it is mighty tasty! We tried to get a picture of the bottle but the lighting was bad no matter where we tried so I just picked the best one of me.
