cabin on the mountain

January 31, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

With the dogs getting old, Nancy and I have to keep our vacations with them close to home and very comfy for them. So for a week at Christmas and another week for our anniversary in January, we found a rental cabin up on Mount Hood, where we could do short easy walks with the pups, and then when they were ready for a long winter’s nap we could get out for some hiking on the mountain.

Travelling in comfort — fortunately all the gear and supplies can fit in the cartop carrier.

Lots of choices for lounging . . .

. . . but it usually ends up like this eventually :-)

Wood stoves are great for drying out wet hiking boots in the evening.

Crossing a cold mountain stream (the easy way) <— foreshadowing!

A dusting of snow, a hint of coming attractions.

Near the Salmon River, below Huckleberry Mountain, if you must know :-)

Uh-oh! A small river to cross but no bridge.

How convenient! A nice set of Crossing-The-River Sticks! (get it???? :-)
