Pics of my Summer Home

I am still having problems with the new Photos application on my MAC so I decided to revert to the old IPhotos application. I couldn’t get the new Photos to upload the pics from my camera. Thankfully the old IPhotos has no problem.

Following are some pics of my campsite here at Lake Harriet. The first couple pics shows my view of the Oak Grove Fork of the Clacamas River. I love my backyard.

My chair where I sit every afternoon with Chica is on the right of this next pic. Not too shabby!

I have moved my rig further into the sun from this pic. My panels weren’t getting enough sun to keep the batteries charged.

This is the day use area with the lake in the background. The lake is much larger then it appears in this pic.

Chica is having a ball in the grass with the river running by.

This is Chica’s favorite spot for catching the afternoon sun.

Here is the narrow road that leads to our campground.

Lots of Fish

I am sure getting a lot of fish dinners. One camper gave me this beautiful Rainbow Trout, which I cooked up real nice. It was delicious. Another camper brought me dinner two different times and they were fried trout. Really good!

Timothy Lake

I drive up to Timothy Lake every Wednesday to take a nice long hot shower. They also have washers and dryers that I can use free. I also can use their Internet to check on email. This is the lodge and the duplex at Timothy Lake that the PGE employees can rent for a modest fee.

View of Mt Hood

After finishing up with business at Timothy Lake I took a ride across the dam and part way around the lake. From the Hoodview Day Use area there is a great view of Mt Hood. If you look close you can see a family of ducks enjoying the lake.

Found the Pacific Crest Trail

I kept going further and found the Pacific Crest Trail that stretches for 2,650 miles from Mexico to Canada.

Then I crossed back over the dam and got this pic of the lake on one side and the river far down on the other side.

I hope this shows you a bit of what it looks like in my beautiful summer home. I will try to post more often now that I have the pics figured out.

  1. Looking forward to our visit to Lake Harriet in a few weeks! Let us know if you need any supplies that we can bring along!

    • I just got your reservation. Can’t think of anything off hand. Once you are ready to leave Timothy Lake I can meet you and show you the way to Lake Harriet. It is not clearly marked coming from Timothy Lake.

  2. Absolutely gorgeous. Our girls can’t quite figure out how come it’s just too hot to lay on our rocks like they do in the winter. Chica looks so cute. Just don’t lose her in that grass – she’s so tiny.

  3. Hi,
    I was wondering if you could share a little about what your typical day is like. I’m interested in workcamping once I retire and hit the road, so I’m curious about the types and amount of work involved. Also, are you being paid and is a free campsite part of the deal?

    Sorry if I missed a past post you may have made on this already.
    Thanks,
    Jim
