Summer explorin'!

Big summer greetings!

I've been out and about with my peeps for some summer fun!Can my pals (especially those familiar with Oregon) guess which mountain is hiding?
This is Trillium Lake.
We rolled in late the night before on a recommendation... it was so dark, we couldn't tell where we were! Turned out to be a beautiful lake and campground!

And view of Mt. Hood!

The lake was so tempting!

I had to take a swim after my ball....I mean pals....I mean, some fast feathered swimmers!
Too fast for me! But what a glorious day for swimming.

After a few nights in Oregon, including a night at the camper manufacturer...for a day of lots of little we went in our new rig, headed home to CA. Mount Shasta in the background.

A pit stop overnight at Castle Lake in the Shasta area, and a promissed great hike the next day...Dad led us up a big hill for some fantastic views.

Had to catch my breath looking out at Castle Lake, Mt. Shasta and the surrounding area.

With a really big drop just off this rock had a good grip on me!
Some fun times...and camper dealings...but we survived, and even made it to our next stop for 10 days! Hume Lake in Sequoia National Forest...

Will tell you about it soon 'cause, whew...I'm still pooped from these explorin's!

Have a great weekend my friends.

  2. Oh Sierra Rose what exciting adventures you are on! :D Such gorgeous mountains. We don't have mountains in Florida. A few hills in the North BOL! Thank you for sharing your beautiful vistas :D Oh and paws crossed for no more repairs on the rest of your trip! :)

  3. Wow, Sierra Rose, you sure do get around - another fantastic adventure. That water in the lake looks deep - you must be a very good swimmer. Be sure to stop by our blog when you can to see all the happenings here too.

  15. It looks like a great trip, Rose, nice and cool. Now you are probably chasing balls and feathered friends at lake Hume. I've never been there so I look forward to reading about your adventures.

  16. Looks like a Most Excellent trip! We've been sticking close to home, but Mom's been feeding us lots of turkey hotdogs in an attempt to get us to 'behave' so it's all good! Happy travels!
