|View of the Columbia from Vista House|
After a wonderful day in the Columbia River Gorge, we turned south and headed into the Hood River Valley. We camped at a National Forest Campground - Trillium Lake. We love staying at National Forest Campgrounds, and this one proved to have all of the things we like. Simple camping (so usually very cheap fees), quiet spaces, and beautiful views. The kids enjoyed swimming in the lake and I enjoyed the leisure of having plenty of time to cook supper. I even had decent cell phone reception so I called my sister so she would know we were still alive (she worries about these things).
