Olallie Lake

On August 26th, we set out for the Olallie Lake scenic area for our first camping trip of the year.  Olallie Lake is set in a beautiful picturesque scene with Mt. Jefferson looming over.  The lake is at about 5000 feet of elevation, and is one of over 50 lakes in theMt. Jefferson Looms over Olallie Lake scenic area.  It's located about midway between Detroit and Madras, Oregon on the Western boundary of the Warm Springs Indian Reservation.  The 17-mile long gravel road is horrible, and nearly beat our Honda car to death.  It was well worth it, however.  We camped at Lower Lake campground, after our reservation at Olallie Meadows was given away by the staff, at which the trailhead for the Lower Lake Trail lies.  We hiked past Lower Lake, which was filled with fish, and on to Fish Lake.  The Pacific Crest trail is nearby, along with trails to Olallie Butte and many other lakes.  Ken and Jeanette brought their RV and their kids, and Pat, her kids, Salima and us roughed it in tents.   Jeannie and Brian were going to be there too, but couldn't find our new campsite!  We missed you guys!  We took rowboats out on Olallie Lake for some fishing, which was fun, but when the wind picked up, Jeanette and the kids couldn't row their boat back to shore and were stuck on the lake for five hours!  Below are some photographs we took on our trip.

We've included photographs from our trip in our Olallie Lake Slide Show!  To view the slide show, click on the link below!
