Whew….we made it back from one of the very best mountain man rendezvous’ we ever went to. It was in a beautiful place with lots of trees and flowers. The weather was awesome, and so were the people. There were 400 camps, which is huge! Pacific primitive rendezvous is the regional 10 day all primitive rendezvous for the pacific northwest, California, Idaho, and even BC, Canada. An all primitive rendezvous means it is strictly for buck skinners only, no tourists or flat landers. Most of the people were new to us, but that was one thing that made it that much more fun. In the 400 camps, there were lots of dogs. Big ones, little ones, and all that we met, nice ones.
We got there early before anything was going on, so that meant hiking! The woods are so beautiful there.
We loved running around and had a great time. Mom took some awesome pictures of flowers, check them out today on Desert Raven Art.
Once everything started, Torrey and I stayed in the trailer when we had to….they were shooting….or we got to go and say hi to everyone. Check out these dogs. Can you see the heart in this dalmation? This nice man had this dalmation, and another dog that he rescued from a puppy mill. That was a sad story, but the dog is doing awesome now.
Here are a couple of dogs that were visiting traders row.
And some horses were there too. They had this great grassy field to hang out in after they got there.
Here are a few pictures of camp. Like I said, it was huge.
At the closing ceremonies it started to rain a little. Dad put me in his capote so I could stay dry.
Then it stopped, and a rainbow came out. What a perfect ending to a perfect time.
We are trying to get back in the swing of blogging and living in the world again. For 10 days we didn’t have phone or internet. Truthfully….mom loved it! Right now we are in Pendleton, Oregon and it’s nice too. Today we will leave here and go to a small town called Joseph. Dad heard somewhere that it was a nice little art community so we are going to visit and see for ourselves. We are loving Oregon, it is so beautiful here. Everywhere we have been has been amazing. So more pictures, of more adventures coming soon.
It’s all about the fun!!
