Heading into a long weekend!

Does anyone have any fun plans for Memorial Day weekend? I do not. My husband has to work every day except tomorrow, so we will be staying near home. I am probably going to take a drive up the mountain tonight, as I heard a rumor that Trillium Lake has opened earlier than expected! Keeping my fingers crossed.

Hope you all have a safe and happy long weekend. Be sure to take a moment to remember why we have this great life!

I miss Trillium Lake!!!!

This photo was taken this time last year. I am going through some serious withdrawls -- from a place! Trillium Lake is my favorite place ever. When I was a kid my family would play here on sunny summer days. My husband and I got married on its banks. We camp and go on day fishing trips here as much as possible throughout the open season. But from about October until late May or early June, it is only accessible via snowshoe or snowmobile (Next year, I hope to try this). However, as of now, the road to the lake is still closed and we are waiting for the last of the snow to melt away. We have camping reservations for June 10th to celebrate our 2 year wedding anniversary. The website says the campground will open on June 9th. Talk about cutting it close! Keep your fingers crossed for us!!! Trillium Lake, I miss you!
