Salem Elks Lodge

When we left Prineville, our plan was to stop at one of the campgrounds along SR-22 northwest of Sisters. However, there is apparently a large fire somewhere in the Mount Jefferson Wilderness since we ran into a lot of smoke heading north on SR-22, and many of the roads and campgrounds on the eastern side of the highway were closed. The smoke was so thick that, even with the air conditioner on recirculate, we could smell it, making it hard to breathe.

So we drove on into Salem, and are spending the night at the Elks Lodge. When we pulled in, we saw a New Horizons fifth wheel, and an International medium duty truck that look really familiar. Turns out it belongs to Ron and Anita Wilson, friends we've known for several years, and who we met at one of the New Horizons rallies we used to attend. We had a nice visit with them, and we all went to dinner at Denny's.

Miles driven: 145.2
