Our 2- Year Anniversary

This year we decided to rent a cabin on Mount Hood and are so glad we did. The cabin was perfect in every way. It was secluded, cozy and had a hot tub in the back that overlooked the creek. It was very relaxing and the only downside was that we didn’t stay longer (only two nights).

We also got to take a nice hike to Ramona Falls and the trailhead was only about 15 minutes from our cabin. And on our way out we stopped by Timberline Lodge for lunch. It was the best 2 year anniversary we’ve ever had. Winking smile

Here are some pictures our chicken adventure:
