    Summer Vacation part two: east via Route 20, through the Okanagon, to a little State Park abutting Lake Bonaparte.

    The region’s principle attraction is hunting — grouse season opened Saturday morning, and Saturday evening we ate grilled grouse breast (surprisingly tasty) courtesy of Greyson Wittstock’s straight shooting: he bagged three birds that morning, one after the other.

    Bonaparte is one of a cluster of lakes set into an arid evergreen forest punctuated by sagebrush and tumbled rock. It smells great there! The heat of the afternoons was deceptive, with the temperatures plunging into the mid thirties overnight — Cathy and my Coleman dome tent was not really up to the challenge, but the cold start to each day didn’t stop us from enjoying the hell out of ourselves!
