Hello Mt Adams!

Our spacious campsite

After setting up camp, we walk toward the lake and saw an Osprey with fish flying by.
This was a good sign that fishing was going to be great this year!

My wife, Iryn, last year caught her first fish ever here. All the trout she caught were around 12"
This year, she caught a lot more and two were were big at 18 & 20 inches!

Iryn caught a 20" beauty! She was one happy camper!

Next day, Iryn caught a 18 incher!

Me? I had to do all the hard work, like rowing. I enjoyed every minute of it.

Peaceful Fishing!
Hard to find a lake anymore that don't have high power boats zooming around!

Tuesday, We hiked halfway around Council Lake, I do not recommend the south half of lake
as it is dangerous with steep inclines, cliffs with no maintained trail.

This was our big planned hike for this year but it was closed this year due
to damage on one of the creeks bridges halfway up. Council Bluff Trail made up for it!

Only saw one Bald Eagle once this time and he was too far away for a picture.
But the Osprey pair kept up a good show all week and that made up for it.

Friday morning we went fishing one last time before heading home, caught 3 more!
We had some company with an Osprey checking us out and some ducks!

Some pics of Mt Adams seen from Mt St Helens when we went there October 15th.

Now for the sad part, leaving Paradise for home.
Goodbye until next year...

This time we're coming in a bigger trailer and truck! Should be fun!
