Our first rally with our new WBCCI group was held at the Silver Spur RV Park in Silverton, OR a few weeks ago and it was so much fun! (I’m really behind on posts!!)

A lot of silver.

And some blue.

First, you might be wondering why we joined the Oregon WBCCI group and not the Washington group (or maybe you’re not really wondering that at all…). We know a few people in the Oregon group who we really like (Rhonda, and Laura and Kevin) and their rallies seemed to be in some interesting parks and not too far from Seattle, so it was a-go!

Silverton is 229 miles from where we’re parked in Fall City, WA, just on the southeast side of Portland. It has a nice downtown area, the Oregon Garden complete with the only Frank Lloyd Wright house open to the public in the Pacific Northwest,

It’s like being back in Oak Park!

 

and a brewery called 7 Brides.

Everyone planned to be outside, but we’re glad the lodge was there.

The Silver Spur park is nice — but as you can see in the photos, don’t go expecting privacy. It seems to be well maintained and they have a really nice lodge that we used for all the dinners.

The biggest fall.

Seventeen miles southeast of Silverton is Silver Falls State Park. The park has 10 waterfalls ranging in height from 27 ft to 177 ft with trails of different distances and difficulty.

Lots of moss.

The South Fall (above and below) trail actually goes behind the fall, so be prepared to get soaked!
