In The Shadow Of Mt. Hood

Finally got out of the big city! Headed to Mt. Hood National Forest, specifically Trillium Lake/Government Camp. We spent a week boondocking in a dispersed camping area a mile north of Trillium Lake.

This was our first time dry camping in the motorhome for more than one night. It turned out great. The on board water lasted the whole week and power needs were easily met with some generator time. Elliot camped out in a tent which he enjoyed quite a bit – it allowed him to sleep late each morning as teenagers love to do!

From our camp spot, we ventured out on day excursions for hiking, geocaching and photography.
