Well, you know I like to quilt and you know I've attempted to grow a garden. My other hobby is enjoying the outdoors. I love to hike, camp, fish, play in the fire, cook outdoors and just breathe the fresh air.
After seeing Anne's trip to Crater Lake my son and I took a day trip last Wednesday. The Lake was awesome and it was good to spend some time with my son before he goes back to school.
Crater Lake is the deepest freshwater lake in the U.S. and the 7th deepest in the world. The water stays a balmy 38 degrees year round. Yes, it is as blue as the photo looks.
We were on our way back up a grueling hike. This is the only safe way to get to the water. 1.1 miles down and 1.1 steep miles back up! I've been a slacker lately as far as exercise and I could sure tell!
Also a few weeks ago we planned a quick camping trip to Mt Hood. We generally get away at least once a month, but because one of our employees retired, and we haven't rehired, we (I use that word loosely) both have been putting in more hours then usual.
We just got back this afternoon. It was good to get away from the phones, computer, weeds and dust bunnies! And look at this view of Mount Hood! The fishing could have been better, but no complaints.
More old quilts tomorrow!!
