We headed out of town for the weekend. Our destination was Lake Kachess, but we had no luck finding a campsite. We drove on, braving a long gravel road and a low gas tank. What we found at the end was a dream, Taquala Lake. We found a huge campsite along the lake with views of the nearby mountain peaks. The wild flowers were in bloom. We enjoyed the company of our friends and the kids managed a four mile round trip hike. Most of us could only manage to dip our toes into the icy cold lakes and creeks, but a couple were brave and took a swim. We can't wait for our next camping trip!
