Last weekend we met our friends from Eugene at Detroit Lake for the final camping trip of the season. Having never camped there before, we were pretty pleased. We had a great location with a view of the lake, nearby bathrooms and a playground. The 90 degree weather was the best we'd had camping all summer, perfect for taking a dip into the lake. No rain fly needed on the tent. We kept it easy and ordered pizza in Detroit for dinner. There was a wicked forest fire mere miles away so a huge helicopter lowered itself ominously and often. Thankfully we were not evacuated. I was hoping for a clear and starry night to enjoy with the girls and we got it! And now, the gear gets stored away for another season. Thanks guys for a great trip!
