Oregon's Avenue of the Boulders
Well, we've been talking about all the cool southern Oregon side trips one can do when you are finished rafting the Rogue River with Whitewater Warehouse. One event located near Prospect, Oregon (Prospect is located on Oregon Hwy 62--on your way to Crater Lake) is the Jamboree & Timber Carnival, one of Oregon's last three timber carnivals. We were a week late in posting the Carnival (this year the Carnival was held on August 16th) but mark your calendars for the third week of August 2009--August 15, 2009--for next year's event.
While you are checking out the Jamboree, don't forget to discover other cool Prospect sites. Pearsony, Mill Creek, and Barr Creek falls are located near Prospect. As is the "Avenue of the Boulders" where boulders the size of houses threaten to upstage these beautiful waterfalls.
You can stay at the Prospect Hotel and even eat dinner there! Another local Cafe is the Prospect Cafe--where you can meet the locals and kibitz about the area's beauty and history.
