steamboat rock state park.

Steamboat Rock State Park, Washington State. Banks Lake boating. Oh Steamboat, you minx. Why do you have to be just so darn good? This was the year of all years…the lake was high, the mosquitoes few and the smoke from local fires gone. Newbies joined in on the fun. Wake surfing happened. BLs were consumed. SIGH. It was heaven. Our annual trip was shorter than usual, but we eeked out all sorts of fun and made too many memories to count. These sorts of yearly trips have become ingrained in me as of late. What started out as a little camping fun has now become the single most important trip for me. For my soul really. I want like 10 annual trips to look forward to šŸ™‚ Care to join me?


ohanape-gosh yer pretty!

Hiking near Mt. Rainier Shriner Peak -

The mountains have been calling my name lately and decided it was time to pull the trigger and head to the baddest mountain around, Rainier. Many of the campgrounds located down there are first come, first serve which don’t always appeal to this planner gal so when I read that they have a handful that can be reserved, I jumped at the chance.

I’d been to Ohanapecosh Campground back in the day with my Mom and remember it being a pretty special place. We luckily got a site in A loop, which I think is the best one out of the bunch, especially if you could snag a river side one like we did. Nothing beat a cold beer and a dip in the river post hike! (more…)
