There is nothing better than taking an adventure to the Oregon’s countryside. On this adventure, we had fun with a visit to Camp 18 Restaurant and the Logging Museum.

Camp 18 Restaurant and Logging Museum is a great place to visit along Highway 26 and Humbug Creek.

We enjoyed a cold drink, along with a delicious meal, and did not pass up dessert. I cheated and took some of my fish in a to-go box home with me, so I had room for the marionberry cobbler.

There are wood carvings of loggers and wild animals all around the grounds for you to find.

After you had a lovely meal, it is time to discover the grounds and gift shop.

Oregon has always relied on the logging industry. From the 1800s to the 1970s, logging was the main staple of Oregon’s economy.  

During the early years, logging equipment used was with horses, mules, many types of hand tools and steam equipment.

As you are exploring the grounds, you will see many types of logging equipment from years gone bye.

It is very relaxing to take a stroll as you explore the equipment and follow the path down to Humbug Creek.

It is a sweet day when you can take your time and embrace your surrounding and discover another place in Oregon.

When you are exploring see if you can find the Monmouth Elephant hiding along the waters edge of Humbug Creek.

Give us a call if you would like to join us for an Oregon adventure.

Our 2015 Oregon Mystery Tour was an enormous success as we discovered more of Oregon. Our mystery tour took us on a journey to the oldest settlement in Oregon… the city of Astoria. It sits at the mouth of the Columbia River and the Pacific Ocean. This beautiful city has gorgeous scenic views of the mountains, ocean and the river. With the opportunity to have many adventures.

This years mystery tour allowed us to visit many of the highlights in this quaint city and some of the surrounding area. We took time to explore but, it was just not enough time to capture all of the sites. It leaves us wanting to go back for a revisit to Astoria.

The Oregon Mystery Tour journey took us to experience good food and drink, fun music, a chance to see museums, a fort and to go below deck on the Coast Guard’s ship, The Columbia. It was a great time had by all.

Well, we know this is a busy time of year for many of us. There are family members coming and going. Yes, you could be that family member who is doing the traveling. Many of us are looking for things to do, places to go and we are looking for things for our family and guests to enjoy.

For those of us who are here in Oregon we have so many options for things to do and places to go.  We are just coming into the ski season. This means many families who will be heading to Mt. Hood for sledding, snowboarding, skiing and yes, those great snowball fights.

Some of us like the ocean in the winter months for storm watching. Checking out the beaches to see what has washed up on shore. There is something about seeing the waves and to watch the whales swim by.

Others of us like more indoor events like concerts, indoor sports, visiting museum and even wine tasting.


This week on Sunday, December 7, 2014 from 1 to 5 pm … We will be at Spirit Mountain Casino for the annual Wine & Spirits Fair (27100 SW Salmon River Hwy). We will be having fun giving away some Oregon wine and historic tours.  This is a fun event and it is free to attend. So, if you are in the area please come and see us.

We are having fun in Oregon!
