What a difference driving across two mountain ranges can make! We drove 3 1/2 hours from the cold rainy coast and found the warm sunshine at Mount Hood National Forest.
Ada got to swim....not really sure what Zach is doing in this picture:
Hiked up to a fire tower where we found this cool rock to pose on:
And visited the beautiful Camas Meadow where we watched dragonflies and flower sniffed: The beautiful Camas flower in bloom:
Ada got to eat dirty snow off Mount Hood. Yum. And show off her new owl backpack at the campground:
On the drive home we stopped by the Bonneville Power Dam and saw where our energy is produced:
And Multnomah Falls. The second largest waterfall in the country: Unfortunately, our short trip came to an end and we are now back in the land of cold and rain. But I'm already scheming our next get away to visit the sunshine!
