July 22, 2015---Elks Lodge, Eugene, OR to Seven Feathers Casino, Canyonville, OR.

We left Eugene at 9:15 this morning.  The drive south on I-5 is really pretty...lots and lots of trees, with blue sky as the back drop.  Some of the fields were rather brown, but the ones that were irrigated added color to the landscape.  

We traveled 100 miles from Eugene to Canyonville.  Usually, we would have continued on down the road, but we need to stop in Medford, probably for most of the day.  Ron’s mother has hip replacement surgery tomorrow morning.  We want to check in on her.  Ron and Matthew left Loveland this morning and should get to Medford late tomorrow.  Hopefully we will still be in Medford and can see them before we continue our journey south.

We are parked at Seven Feathers Casino dry camping lot.  There are probably about twenty rigs here.  Today we drove around the entire complex, which consists of a large convention center, the casino, at least two restaurants, and a hotel.  Across the Interstate, is a large Truck Stop, with a restaurant.  A very nice RV park with 190 full hookup places, and an indoor swimming pool.  

Their landscaping is all beautiful.  They have many hanging baskets of flowers as well as borders made of the same variety of flowers.  One of the employees told us they have the flowers year round.  It is an amazing complex.  I don’t know which Indian tribe owns it all, but they didn’t scrimp on the facility.

If I could send pictures, (which I can’t seem to do lately) I would send the picture of the enormous bronze statue at the entrance of the casino.  It is an eagle landing.  The talons and beak are gold...very impressive.
