This afternoon I made a visit to Eugene, Oregon's downtown public library which appears to be pretty new, maybe less that ten years old. Wow, what a great building! Bright open spaces, easy access to all levels, and exterior construction that will withstand the decades of neglect often required of public buildings. It's such a pleasant contrast to Seattle's new downtown library that is failing us on so many levels.

Today I hiked a portion of the Rogue River where it courses through a gorge about 15 feet wide and 50 feet deep at the narrowest point. The hike was just upstream from where I was camped on Union Creek and was about a 3 mile hike for the round trip.

Late Tuesday morning, June 22nd, I left Perry and Carol's house in Bend to head south towards Crater Lake where I planned to spend a few days camping and hiking on the Rogue River. I arrived at the Union Creek Campground at about three in the afternoon and set up camp in a site right next to Union Creek about 100 yards upstream from where it empties into the Rogue River.
