We met our friends from Tacoma halfway at a campground off of Hwy 12. This time we had a reservation which was helpful! Analise was almost one year old.
We enjoyed a walk along the river.
We drove to Windy Ridge on the East side of Mt. St. Helens.
We took a hike up to a viewpoint. It was a beautiful day.
We enjoyed a few wildflowers along the way.
The lake was so big and clear.
The clouds and sky were lovely.
The trees were ripped off of these hills by the eruption and went into the lake below.
The treeless meadow areas left room for wildflowers.
The log jam was quite impressive up close.
Analise had rocks to play with.
The Anderson boys enjoyed some cold water between their toes.
We were careful to leave no trace as we enjoyed the water.
It was so much fun to see a new side of Mt. Hood!
