I love this part of Oregon, had been dreaming about how to get back to this part of our state since a sorta failed solo rip out that way the year before. I also wanted to introduce my wife to an area she hadn't visited, which is saying something as she's a native Oregonian. So, I hatched a plan with my mother-in-law to watch our two minions that not only gave us a much needed adult break, but also gave me the opportunity to let her experience the grandeur that is the Oregon Outback. Now, my wife isn't new to camping or roughing it in the woods, but she is new to dual-sport riding and camping off the bike. Rather than hit the deep end and go off in the wild for 3 nights of our 4 day getaway, I decided on one night in the wild with a couple nights in rustic accommodations. We'd stage and stay at Summer Lake hot springs, a place I recommend highly. I had no idea what the cabins would be like, but they were perfect for our getaway and afforded us the perfect bookends to a night of camping. I'll dive into all the details in a bit, here are a few nuggets to kick things off.
