And Suddenly It's Summer 2024!

Camped this weekend at Suttle Lake, east of Sisters, Oregon, at about 3500 feet. Rainy much of the day Saturday. Woke up to 34 degrees F both mornings. June in Oregon!! This was our first official trip in the Hawk flatbed (two weekends ago we drove it home from Missouri) and the cold rainy weather allowed us to ascertain two things: the heater works, and the camper doesn't leak in heavy rain. So all good. On Sunday it was 55-ish by afternoon and no rain, perfect for a walk along the Metolius River, one of the most beautiful rivers I know.
Nice that you are enjoying your new camper.Have many more great times.

Drive down the hill and add 15 degrees :(
Sad face indeed, Craig. The afternoon forecaster came on duty yesterday and bumped all the temps (posted above) up 2 degrees. We woke to a low of 70 this morning. Some things are just not right. Where should we go?
 
Climb high, 3pins! You know how to take advantage of the adiabatic temperature change. But up there the trees are more scarce, thus a loss of shade.

We're also getting very warm weather in the Pacific Northwet in the next week.
 
There's always the coastal area. Lots of fog during the early morning late evenings.
Our natural AC is working just fine.
Or I could package some cool air up and send it to you.
Enjoy the nice but warm weather.

We woke to a low this morning of 78 degrees with a predicted high today of 100. The same for tomorrow. This is absolutely obscene.
