Love for Adventure

October 15, 2020

One of my fondest memories is when I went with my wife to…we camped at Trillium Lake. I don’t know if you know where that is or not. It’s near Mt. Hood, Oregon. It’s a beautiful lake with Mt. Hood in the distance and a real neat camping spot and we took our dog, Susie dog with us, which is a Terripoo, white Terripoo. And I had my Coleman camp stove and we cooked eggs in the morning and fried eggs and bacon and all that stuff and toast and had a nice breakfast. We just relaxed the whole day at Trillium Lake, which is a really beautiful spot. If you’ve never gone there, you should just pick up today and pack up and go to Trillium Lake. Well actually, it’s nicer when it’s warm weather.

What I love so much about that place is that it’s beautiful. It’s green trees, beautiful blue lake, Mt. Hood in the distance. It’s just absolutely gorgeous. And it’s a great place to camp, and it’s quiet and everything. You drive in and a lot of people bring their campers and stuff, but there’s a lot of space. And we found a real private space. Really, really nice. As for previous camping and hiking experience, I’ve done that too. But I’m not a great, great experienced camper … but I’ve done it. Back when we camped at Trillium Lake I had my car and I erected the tent. I also made breakfast in the morning.

We went on a lot of trips, but not camping. A few camping trips. But my trip to Trillium Lake was one of my fondest memories because it’s such a nice place. Another thing that took place on that trip was cooking breakfast. And we did some hiking around there. One of my nicest hiking trips was around that mountain. Oh, what’s the name of it? The one where they filmed “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.” In Wyoming, that mountain. Oh, Devil’s Tower, Wyoming. I hiked completely around Devil’s Tower. I’ve done a lot of hiking. I hiked clear around Devil’s Tower. I also climbed the whole Diamond Head Mountain in Hawaii, all the way to the very top of it. I got lost, stuff like that.

I also did a big hike in Coeur D’Alene, Idaho. They have a really neat trail that goes way, way way, way, way up. Beautiful. What I like the most about hiking is just the adventure. And I don’t know if you’ve ever been to Multnomah Falls. That’s a nice hike up to that bridge up there and look at the waterfall and everything. So it’s more about the view and the adventure, the fun of doing it.
