Twin Lakes on Mt. Hood was the destination for this group of five families on their first backpacking trip. We made the easy two mile hike in to Lower Twin Lake and set up camp right next to the Lake. Most of the afternoon was spent exploring and playing. After a filling dinner of spaghetti we made smores and sat around the campfire exchanging stories. The stars were spectacular, and we were able to see their reflections in the perfectly still lake.

In the morning we had pancakes for breakfast and hiked up the hill to Upper Twin Lake. The backpack out to the bus was mostly downhill and went quite quickly. Everyone seemed to have a wonderful time on this memorable weekend.
