Untraditional Christmas

Friday, we drove up to Timberline to ski/snowboard.  Andrew went along, but stayed in the lodge with our gear.  It was a fairly cold and sometimes low visibility day.


With all three of our adult children home, the only time we could backpack together was Christmas Eve into Christmas Day, so we did.  Trillium Lake was our destination with each of us carrying firewood on our packs.  While the guys put up the tents, Sarah and I dug out the fire pit ~~ a pretty daunting idea given the amount of snow it was covered under.  We also dug an area to sit around the pit.


Here is a daytime view.


There is a nice pavilion near the lake so it’s the perfect destination if it’s snowing.


On the way out, we ran into a friend from our Portland Modern Quilt Guild and her hubby.  At Sew Days, we often chat about backpacking.
