This is What it Looks Like When You Go Camping on the Third Week of July in Oregon
We finally got the tent mostly drip proof with a combination of ingenuity and resourcefulness, mostly on the part of the Farmboy. Then followed 24 hours of being partly damp, mostly cold, and definitely tired, but somehow enjoying each other and the experience as much as humanly possible.
The mountain you see is Mount Hood, the Location is Lost Lake. We haven't been up there for nearly 10 years, and although still remarkably beautiful and well maintained, it appears the masses have found our favorite spot. Despite the weather, the campground was full by Thursday morning, and there was no parking available even in the day use area. That's a few too many people for our taste. So although it was sad to leave on such a lovely day, we knew we were making a good choice by leaving on a Friday afternoon ahead of the weekend influx of bodies.
