Since the one week of over 100 degree temperatures has passed, Happy Camp is back to being a wonderful Summertime place! Guests out at the resort sitting on the expansive green lawn watch the Klamath River flow by. Kids still rush to the creeks in the heat of the day for a cooling SPLASH down! Hikers climb to the top of the Town Trail from Elk Creek Road, and sit and watch over our beautiful little town.
Gardens have begun to yield their harvest. Wilson had tomatoes to spare and EmmaLee shared some zucchini with us. Blackberries will soon be ripe and instead of cherry pie we will enjoy blackberry cobbler (a la mode!)
Summer events will soon be happening all along the Klamath River Communities. First is the Blackberry Festival at the Klamath River Community Hall on August 22nd. Ask at Quigleys for more information on all that is planned!
Seiad Day is next with a parade, booths, and auction on wonderful arts and crafts on Saturday. This should be on August 29th — after school has begun, if we are lucky. The adults enjoy the dinner and dance following the day’s activities.
Finally, as if to top off all the events of the summer with friends and family coming from all corners, the Bigfoot Jamboree will be September 3-4-5th! All the fun from Fridays coronation of the Queen and teen dance to the parade on Sunday takes place at the beautiful River Park beneath huge shade trees! The Parade begins on Davis Road and then proceeds down Highway 95 so everyone (who isn’t in the parade) has a good chance to see all the floats and entries.
What a fun way to culminate happy summer days along the beautiful wild Klamath River!!!
