Our Sunday Adventure in the Mountains of Oregon, Mt. Hood to be exact
Our First View of Lost Lake
Sunday, a hot day in the valley, my husband, my dog Henry and I decided to drive up in the Mt. Hood National Forest to an area called "Lost Lake". We had a guide book and decided to go with what it said. You know I think the people who wrote the book had no idea of how to calculate the mileage as they were off by about 35 miles. We were going the back way as we had no idea there was another route, a little more direct, but not as interesting.
The road has lots of twists and turns, became very narrow, indeed a one lane, potholed, dirt road climbing higher and higher into the Mt. Hood National Forest. There were times when we wondered if we were on the right road until we came across a dirt bike off road competition and got directions of a sort.
Finally we reached the fork in the road that actually became paved highway and we were not far from our destination.
We thought we would be at a lake that was not crowded and were we ever wrong.
Where did all these people come from?
The way that we had not traveled.
However, what a beautiful lake and a walk that circles the lake. We all loved it, what a day!
