Thanks to the free WiFi at the Library in Silver Lake, Oregon we are able to provide an update. We are attending a four day Roadtrek gathering near there, organized by Yan Seiner with Roadtrek. Roadtrekers from across the U. S., west coast to New York and New England. Having a great time while connecting with other Roadtrek owners.

Today the group visited Fort Rock. Some of them went on to Fort Rock State Park. Interesting history. Named for the unusual rock formation.

That is our new Roadtrek in the foreground.

Here is an image which I hope gives a better idea of the massive size of Fort Rock. We were about four miles away when we took this.

Also visited was the Museum at Fort Rock, Oregon. Below are several images from there. The museum has moved several historical buildings from the area, including homes, a church and school. They also had a several pieces of old farming machinery

Fort Rock is in the background.

A brief story of the town of Fort Rock.

The next two images show part of Yan’s gathering group learning some of the history of the various buildings.

Blacksmith shop.

An old Mobil Oil gasoline pump and a working windmill which was pumping water.

The St. Rose’s church building.

Artifacts in the Widmer Cabin. Oldest Lake County Cultural sites date back 14,500 years. Below are pestles with grindstones for grinding grain, an arrowhead collection from the area Indians, the Lake County obsidian artifacts were traded as far away as New York.

Below are a miniature horse model with real horse hair and a miniature wagon replica.

We believe everyone had a great day!
