Apparently, Keeps Mill was a stop on an alternative route around Mt. Hood on the Oregon trail. If that’s true, how people got wagons here, I do not know. The hillsides rise quite quickly from both sides of the river. The White River flows from the White Glacier on Mt Hood. Keeps Mill is a primitive, secluded campground at the end of Forest Road 2120. The last mile is pretty narrow and down a steep, exposed hillside with a really tight switchback.
No art classes for now. I’m concentrating the teaching part of my brain on my job at Adams State University.
