Default New Year Traditions - First Backpack trip of the year.

We always try to get out for our first backpack trip of the year when the weather allows. This year we snowshoed to Trillium Lake in Oregon on Jan 4th. It was cloudy but pretty much dry for our trip.
The lights in the background are from the Timberline ski resort. If you want to rent a cabin in the area for the weekend, it runs about $650 (US), but it is free to camp in a nice warm tent. It is not too bad at all out if you have the right equipment and dress in layers for the weather.

I have been to Trillium Lake several times but I was not aware that Timberline Lodge was visible from there. I have a panorama (stitched) taken from the dam and looking toward Mt. Hood but I don't recall seeing the lodge. I think I'll take another look.
