A Perfect Day For a Road Trip

Who doesn't love a road trip.  Yesterday was a perfect day for one.  My husband and I don't get many days off together because of our work schedules so when we do, and the weather is beautiful, we head out for the open road.  

We headed up north to one of our favorite scenic routes, first stop, Swift reservoir, a 10 mile long lake at the foot of  Mount St. Helens.  It's a beautiful place to camp as well which we have done many times over the years.

From there we headed further east towards Mt. Adams...

The scenery is so beautiful along the way, streams, waterfalls and mossy forest.

Our furthest destination was another favorite spot... at the foot of Mt. Adams.
It's a beautiful, secluded camp ground with only 6 camp sites.  They're hard to get which we found out on another trip up there. It's a 2 1/2 hour drive from where we live but well worth the trip.

The twin waterfalls that overlook the campground are beautiful and the sound is spectacular.
We stayed for awhile enjoying the view and then headed back towards home.

The whole trip is so scenic and I recommend it to anyone who lives in the Pacific Northwest.

Hope you enjoyed the scenery and thanks for stopping by!
