We spent last weekend with the Oregon Coots at Paulina Lake, Oregon. Nestled in the Deschutes National Forest at 6000 feet, Paulina is a high desert gem and a great place to sail.
Paulina Lake is about 45 miles south of Bend, Oregon and is situated in the Newberry Caldera National Monument.
It's nearing the end of the season and a lot of folks showed up to get in one last camping trip.
The food was excellent, culminating in a pizza feast on Saturday night in Jetman Dan's homemade portable pizza oven (650 pounds of brick and steel!).
He baked a dozen pizzas to feed about thirty people. Bob Wessel made his German chocolate Dutch-oven dump-cake. Jim Reim brought his world famous cheesecake.
The clouds rolled in and Sunday morning dawned cool and wet.
Time to pack it in and head for home.
A photo slideshow for those of you who couldn't make it - See you next year?
And the video:
