I'm Still Here, Or Out There

Most of our favorite backpacking destinations are still unreachable due to snow (okay, they're technically not unreachable, but hiking through snow isn't what we want to do with our summer).  So we've done some car camping on our weekends while we wait for the snow to melt.

Recently, we've become somewhat secretive about the outdoor spots that we continue to love and new-to-us ones that we're still discovering.  Portland feels like it's bursting at the seams with new residents, and the surrounding outdoor destinations that we used to love for their quiet solitude are becoming busier and busier.  So let's say this about the trip seen above from a couple weeks ago: it started out on a beautiful lake (that sadly became mosquito-ridden as the sun set, but we'll be back later in the season, for sure).  It ended the following day on a beautiful stretch of river that couldn't have been a more perfect spot for enjoying a hot summer day.
