Mt. Hood


Yesterday around 11:00am I had a crazy idea to drive home during our lunch break, pack up our gear and drive to Mt. Hood after work and go camping! So....we did! I made a list of things we needed...and we went home during lunch and in less than 20 minutes packed up our stuff and somehow we made it happen! Dave's pack had about 70lbs of stuff in and on it and I had about 40lbs on my back. Luckily the hike in to here we set up camp was only about 10 minutes. Once we go to "our spot" we pitched the tent and set right up. It was a beautiful site right along the Salmon River. It was very secluded, surrounded by trees and just feet from the river. The sound of the river was so peaceful, I really loved it!


We roasted dinner and mellows, hung out, took pics... and just had a great time! Today when we woke up we went on a great hike and spent the morning/afternoon enjoying the BEAUTIFUL nature around us! We had an awesome time! This was our first time actually back packing in with all our gear and we really enjoyed it! What a fun weekend! I love the summer here! The weather is incredible! Its been right around 75-80 degrees I have not been hot yet....its perfect! When we become millionaires I will have a summer home here! :) jk (but not really)

Wish we were there. It looks like a tropical forest. Are there many bugs like mosquitoes? Looks like spiders might like to live there and bite me.
