Earlier this month, we kicked off Summer with a family camping trip to Paulina Lake in Central Oregon. Lured by tales of a dig-your-own hot-spring, we spent two days hiking, relaxing, and soaking up the sun. We were successful in finding the hot-spring–an underground spring that bubbles up through the gravels at the shore of the lake–and, lucky for us, found the hard work of digging it out already done! We still had our work cut out for us in keeping it bearable by tempering the heat with buckets of cold lake water. By the end of the trip, Leland became a marshmallow-roasting pro, and was surprisingly gifted at lounging in the hammock. It must be hereditary . . .
