Mirror Lake, with a view of Mt. Hood.  Lovely, yes, and some nice rock ridges to climb and explore.  
However, never, never, never again will I spend a night up here.  Between the boy scouts
screaming across the lake, others getting stuck in the mud, and the myriad of other hikers,
I hated it.  I took my campfire girls up here and discovered that courtesy was a
thing of the past.  Dawn with the deer in the swamp gave me the only enjoyable
moments--no one else was up to ruin it.

Shore Acres -- The waves hit with a boom that vibrates in your bones, and if you
work your way out to the edge of the cliff--not that you should do that, mind you--
it's very slick, very dangerous--you can feel the earth shake with the waves.
No one really knows why the explosive booms occur, but the theory is that
it's because of the shape of the rocks.  The water comes in, traps a pocket of air
under the angled rock shelf, compresses the air, and forces the explosion.

Truck-camping in the Cascades.  Unfortunately, my new dog is at 100 lbs
and doesn't fit in the truck tent like this dog--my old dog (who was supposed to be a small,
nonterritorial--ha!--companion for my previous, 95-lb wolf-dog).  The
new dog is a white German Shepherd who likes to carry logs
around for fun.  (And I bet you think I'm kidding.)

Day-hiking on Elk Mountain, where my father used to hunt.
