A couple weekends ago all four of us were getting a little stir crazy. It's not really the weather that's been getting in the way of our exploring. It's more that we've been pretty busy with work and life in general. Oh and acting like adults sometimes means we need to stay home on the weekends and take care of adult things. I know, it's ridiculous.
We eventually found an empty campground (Elk Creek I think?). Looked like it would be so fun in the summer! We hiked through and found a trailhead at the backend of the campground that was just what the doctor ordered. The four of us puttered along for about 2.5 miles before turning. Let's just say the doggies left way less crazy pants than they arrived. Mission accomplished.
We settled on finding somewhere to hike for a bit and headed up into the Tillamook forest on the way to the coast.
