Camping, Goodwin Style

After our stint in Brownsville with the cubscouts, Annie and I headed over to the Cascades to join Stephanie and the Goodwins on their annual week-long campout.

I had never been to the Newberry Caldera, which is south of Bend. The Goodwins were camped at Paulina Lake.

We took a ranger-led tour of an obsidian flow. It is amazing that a technology like flint-napping is still used for specialized surgical blades.

We visited Paulina Falls which marks the edge of the caldera.

Can't have fun without being dirty!

Dave showed Annie how to fish. We could see some 6-inchers near the dock, but they would do more than nibble at the bait.

How fun. Sheryl took us to see that lake one time. It's pretty country. Your blogpost is going to make her homesick.
