Lacamas Park is so under-appreciated---it's like a mini Forest Park....but BETTER!!

Keep your eyes peeled on Ed's trail for this inscribed stone. it's located right on the trail, but it's still easy to miss.

Silver Star is stunning on a clear day!!

The road is now closed over to "Chain of Lakes", making this lake much more private and serene than ever before. Nice!!

See entry 58 for info on Goose Lake's hidden lava handprints and footprints. It's a fabulous tale, with a link to an OPB segment about the prints.

Campfires and nighttime skinny-dipping are deep lake done right!!

Deep Lake may be Indian Heaven's most scenic lake because it is a hanging lake as opposed to the usual basin lakes.

Nice waterfall on the better Bird Creek meadows hiking loop.

Late July/early August is the time for wildflowers on the Mt Hood hiking loops. Entry 84 has the details about which loop to do and when.
