Here’s what I remember about my sister’s Fourth of July visit, almost four months later. Dan was supposed to come out, too, but he got terribly sick! When Katie got in, we went with all the neighbors to the Taphouse and Tigardville Station. On the Fourth, Katie and Nat and I drove out to William M. Tugman State Park, in Lakeside / near Eel Lake / about ten miles south of Reedsport, OR. We walked around our campground and the lake, set up the hammock and relaxed, made hot dogs and grilled corn for dinner, and went to sleep in the tent. It was a glorious day. The next day was for the dunes! We drove down the road to the John Dellenbeck Dunes trailhead and saw the dunes after about half a mile. It’s an absolutely breathtaking sight. We spent two or three hours just walking around, kind of on the trail / making our way toward the ocean? It’s two miles of dunes hiking, which is tiring. We got to a point where we wanted to lie down and rest, and then headed back. We walked 7.2 miles that day, 16,354 steps, climbed 9 floors. I don’t think anyone enjoyed it more than Cody!
