Labor Day

On September 1, 2013

Where to go for Labor Day, the glorious three day weekend at the beginning of September? The first thought was kayaking in the San Juan Islands. We didn’t have enough experience or preparation so we decided to backpack in the Olympic Mountains. After my sister couldn’t find a bus ticket to Seattle I decided to pick her up in Portland and go to…. Crater Lake? Sure!

The lake was less impressive than I remembered. 10 year old Mark had some super high expectations. Regardless, the lake is beautiful and jumping off a ledge into the lake was the rush of adrenaline I needed. To round off the trip we grilled on a fire, camped, hung out in Portland, and did what my sister and I do best: drive to nowhere.
