Visiting PGE’s Trout Creek Rec. Area

Judy and I are still the only “host couple” at the park but we have been informed that permanent help is on the way.  Our boss, John, said he has hired a couple but it will be a couple of weeks before they complete the hiring process and get here from Utah. Our fill-in help has been great but I am sure they will be glad to get back to their normal schedule at their parks. 

Larry, a PGE temp like us is the care taker at PGE’s Trout Creek rec area who has been helping us out. He and his wife Marge, invited us out to the property for dinner a couple of days ago. The area is very remote, located approx ten miles at the floor of a volcanic rock canyon. The total area that PGE owns there is over 3000 acres. It is “a little rough” getting to it but the rugged beauty makes it worth the trip. To get there the road goes from a state HWY to a county rd to a  gravel road and ends with a three mile logging road (that is the way we would describe it in GA.) to Larry and Marge’s base.  The steep canyon walls are 300 to 400 feet in height.

Judy and I had a great time socializing with Larry and Marge. Marge served up delicious servings of Black Bean Soup and corn bread. The honey for the corn bread was quite a treat.  We got there a little too late to take an ATV tour of the property but look forward to that on our next visit.  THANKS a lot Larry and Marge for a wonderful evening.

Here are a few pics. ( the pics do not come close to conveying the vastness of the canyon walls and rugged beauty)

  1. Wow, that really is remote! Bet it's really peaceful and quiet.

    1. Mike, it is so remote that the only thing one sees or hears is the sight and sounds of nature.
