"The kids absolutely loved it," was the first thing Natalie and Leif reported upon returning the camper van called Grand Ronde. We've gotten pretty used to this statement from parents. One family rented a GoCamp van to celebrate a 5th birthday because their child constantly yelled, "Camper!" every time he saw one on the highway. And our favorite quote of all time remains, "Top bunk. Waaaaay cool," which was uttered by Theo, age 4, just seconds before he fell sound asleep (in the Grand Ronde by chance).
We've known Natalie for years as an amazing yoga teacher, but more recently we are starting to think of her as a #momtog – a mom who happens to be an excellent photographer. Or an excellent photographer who happens to be a mom? Natalie and her sweet family took the Grand Ronde on an adventure to the Deschutes River and returned with these wonderful photos.
For your own family trip, consider taking a drive along the 34-mile (54 km) Lower Deschutes River Back Country Byway where you can stop at Sherars Falls and watch members of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs fish from cliff-side platforms. The Lower Deschutes River offers 16 developed Bureau of Land Management campgrounds along the river so you'll have plenty of options for staying the night.
Given that Leif owns Flying Fish Company, it's no surprise that fishing was on the family agenda. What does your family love to do and how can GoCamp help you make memories?
