Oak Grove Fork of Clackamas River

The flow of water hidden in the shadows at the bottom of this photo is the Oak Grove Fork of the Clackamas River. The tributary feeds Timothy and Harriet Lakes (how odd that I haven't posted any photos of Harriet Lake! I will have to remember that on a day when I have nothing new to post and get something out of my archives. It's a beautiful spot!)

I was more focused on the sky in this photo though. The sun (which I had not gotten a glimpse of in days, but came out briefly) was just going down behind the tree line.

Clackamas Lake Meadow

This soggy meadow is known as Clackamas Meadow, and is part of the Clackamas Lake Ranger Station Historic District. The small building you can see in shadows of the photo is one of eleven historic buildings in the compound, and is listed as a historic district on the National Register of Historic Places.

Trillium Lake Opening Weekend

As I posted last week, I was anxiously awaiting the opening of my favorite place ever, Trillium Lake. On Thursday I heard that the lake had opened, and on Friday after work drove up to see for myself. It was open! On Saturday my husband, his friend and I went up to fish and take in the first weekend. The fresh cool air was so refreshing. It was snowing when we arrived, but we came prepared, and the weather got better as the day progressed. By the time we left, Mt Hood had peeked out of the clouds long enough for me to get this photo. Here is hoping the remainder of the snow melts enough that the campground opens by the 10th, when we have camping reservations here! (I promise I will lay off the photos of the lake for a few weeks now, since I have posted two in the past week hehe!)

Memorial Day

Taken at Willamette National Cemetary last year. I am going to try to head up there today at some point and visit my husbands grandfather. Take a moment today to remember those who deserve remembering.
