Early summer 2020

A few shorter trips

Swimming at Phantom Lake.At the Satsop nuclear power plant (which was never finished). Interesting structures.

Klalock lodge area, on the Olympic Penninsula

The kids competed to stack as many rocks as possible. These rocks were about as good as you could get, for that task.

At the Forks visitor center. Huge heavy-duty picnic tables, made in a prison nearby.Fires at nearby Crescent Lake

Plenty of raspberries in the back yard. These are creeping raspberries, though, which aren't as tasty as regular raspberries.A kayak trip with friends, from Des Moines to Vashon Island.

Backpacking trip with Kelly, Rachel Lake

My homemade backpacking chair. It worked well, and was pretty comfortable.My first solo backpacking trip, to Mirror Lake.

I saw quite a few old blazes on trees. You notice a lot more, when you're not with other peoplePicked huckleberries into a little leaf cup

Poo-poo point with JeanBiking on Soos Creek trail
