trillium lake

Here are the last (but certainly not the least) of our photos from early June. After we'd visited Timberline, we drove 10 minutes east down US-26 and ended up at Trillium Lake. It's a state park that we'd heard has perfect views of Mt. Hood - and we weren't disappointed! We had a delicious picnic in the woods, did a 2-mile hike around the lake, and couldn't get over the huge mountain in front of us. We saw bald eagles and river otters and huge Doug firs all around. And were less than an hour and a half from our apartment!
