Oregon must have the slowest speeds in the continental U.S. We went through several constructions zones where we were required to slow down to 65 or get double fines. Athena was lucky to get the motor home to 65 most of the time.
Rifle Gap Park seems pretty, we are way up in the hills. Athena had to show her expert driving skills getting up to the camp ground, they had a paving machine paving half of what should be a one way road, and we had to drive on the cliff side with no guard rails. A nice construction guy guided us past the paving machine, I am not sure a credit card would fit between us and the machine. We took out a cone or two, but Athena did not feel a thing. We are just glad to be off the road and in our site, the construction crew is glad of that as well.
