Skyline Rd

oakgroveriverWe went for a drive yesterday, out Hwy. 26 past Mt. Hood, turning off onto Skyline Road. It was a beautiful day up in the mountains, warm, but much cooler than in town. Lots of flowers blooming, like lupines, daisies, and lilies. Sadly, no pics of the flowers, although I really wish I’d gotten a shot of the mountain lilies. They were stunning.

We drove past the Clackamas Lake Ranger Cabin, and I stopped to snap a pick of the Clackamas River.

Further on, we made our way down towards Olallie Lake. Lots of cutting has taken place by the roads, as crews attempt to clear out dead trees that pose a falling hazard. While the end result will be great, it looks dreadful right now, lots and lots of cut trees down.

There were a ridiculous amount of mosquitos down by the lake itself – big ones! Also, so many trees burned at Peninsula Campground and have now been removed. The peninsula looks so bare now, very sad.

Overall, a lovely day for a drive. DH and I did lots of discussion about our future plans. Hmmmm, New Zealand?
