One of my favorite places in the Oregon Cascades may be lost due to the fires. I know, lost homes and displaced people take precedence, but I can’t help feeling a deep sadness over the loss of the Olallie Lakes area in the Mt Hood National Forest.

There was this cute old style forest service resort there that was built in 1932 and served as a stopping place for those stalwart folks hiking the Pacific Crest Trail. The resort, along with the old growth forests and the creatures who dwelt there will be truly missed…

I wanted to share this photo from last summers backpacking and camping trip at Olalie. My dad liked it enough to have it framed and it was on his dining room wall until he passed away this January.
