The Elusive Trillium Lake Otters

You will have to excuse my enthusiasm. I am so excited. My favorite place in the world has finally opened up again for the summer. Today I went to check for myself if Trillium Lake, up on the flanks of Mt Hood, was open. And it is!!! There is still a significant amount of snow. The campground is closed. But we walked the trail to where my husband and I were married, and as we navigated the path, we spotted the elusive Trillium Lake otters. They don't show themselves too often, but I was able to get this one slightly blurry photo from a distance. I told my husband about it and he immediately told me we have to go back to go fishing tomorrow. Perhaps I will get more lucky then :)


  1. Great catch!!! I love otters, they are so cute!

  2. How wonderful for you. I've never seen otters outside zoos, and I'd just love to see them.
