A Quiet Weekend

I spent the weekend at the aptly named Hideaway Lake in the wilds of Clackamas County where a few days without phones, computers, electricity or even running water cleared all the normal jabber-jabber out of my head.

It's coming back now, after a day of work and talk and traffic and news, but in the interim, here are a few thousand words' worth of my weekend vacation:

We camped near Hideaway Lake and walked a mile to Shellrock Lake. I'm not sure which one is in this photograph.

I thought this was an Indian pipe, but now I'm not sure.

Scientific name: sparky little yellow flower.

In the distance, the valley of the Oak Grove Fork of the Clackamas River.
Bears love huckleberries.
At the end of a long day, there's nothing like relaxing by the fire with the manual to your new camera.
