Several hours later we arrived at Coldwater Creek Camp. The camp site was beautiful, but very uneven. Try as we might we couldn't level La Dee Dah. There was also a drop off right out the front door. So no awning either. No problem. We're in the shade mostly anyway. Now aren't we easy going!
No worries and those wienies were calling our names.

The lake looked clear and sparkling. The plan was to rent a row boat and try our luck fishing the next day.
That gave me a little time for reading before bedtime. I'm usually a late into bed and early up gal, but that night we turned in early.
The following morning we rented the boat and spent the day fishing. I love my new pole! Did I or hubs catch anything....nada. But we were determined to try again!

The next day we decided to hike around the lake in the morning and have lunch at the lodge located at one end of the lake. It didn't look far. Ha, ha! The trail ended up circling around behind the lodge. So it was a bit further than it appeared. The trail was really lovely. It wound through lava beds and forest with wonderful views of the lake too.
|Yes, that really is the trail people! A bit rough in places. We met some guys on bikes and warned them.|
|That's Clear Lake alright!|
|We crossed several bridges over the McKenzie River.|
|A waterfall too!|
|I was surprised to see so many wildflowers along the trail.|
