Last year we met the spectacularly awesome Brines family at Lakeside, and then Jon and I took the kids for their first fantastic overnight backpacking trip later in the year. Jon recently stopped by to deliver a box of Girl Scout cookies and we chatted about camping again this summer. I finally understand the whole booking window thing, unfortunately not in enough time to really help us this season, so we're going to a place we've never been before. We're still able to visit Lost Lake or Trillium or any of the other outstanding Mt. Hood spots but will get to come back to our quiet, restful camping neighborhood each night. Lost Creek, here we come!
