Elk Lake vacation

From my bed I watch
mist ducks sunrise on Elk Lake
blue flame heats the tea

Six days in the Central Oregon cascades with my family and our friends from across the street. Good to get out of the routine, get on/in the water, and sleep outside. A couple cool wet days (the soaking pool at McMennamins' St. Francis school was a godsend), but mostly beautiful.

Cascade lakes highway
there is only up or down
guess which one hurts more
