We took our last camping trip of the season last weekend and it was fantastic. We drove up into the Cascades about an hour from home to Lava Lake. The weather was fantastic, even if down in the 20's at night. With our trailer we were cozy warm though. We camped on Lava Lake where we had beautiful views of Mt. Bachelor, South Sister and Broken Top. We went for a hike, went mountain biking, played games, made s'mores and relaxed in the sun.
This was our first mountain biking adventure as a family (only Mark had gone before) and it was so much fun! We all just loved it and plan to do it more next summer. In the meantime I hope we'll get in a few rides closer to home before winter sets in. Bend has an abundance of trails, but we have to find out which ones would be good for beginners. The balance and coordination required is so good for Ryan, heck it's good for me too!
I managed to get some knitting done on my Socktoberfest sock and finished it last night.
