Timothy Lake 2014

What was once an annual event fell by the wayside in recent years. But this year, we revived the Timothy Lake camping trip!

Brad and I have been organizing the trip since college, with the last one in 2010. It was so nice to have the gang (at least part of it) together again for some fun times in the great outdoors.
Most of us arrived Thursday, set up camp and started relaxing. Friday, Eryn and I gathered the energy to step away from the campfire and hike from Gone Creek Campground to the dam and back - about 5.5 miles.
Such a beautiful view of Mount Hood:
The campground is now run by PGE, a nice improvement over Thousand Trails. New signs, maps, parking areas. Friendly staff.
 Tim and Laura brought a crawfish trap - a big hit with the kiddos:
Tim invited us to join him on a hike around the lake - 13 miles.
A good time was had by all :)
It was a very nice, relaxing weekend with friends. Can't wait for next year :)
