Entrance Timberline Lodge
Went to Government Camp to visit Mt. Hood Visitor Center to collect brochures and tour museum. Had some time before going to the airport to pick up Marcus and Faith so we drove up to Timberline Lodge, known as the people's lodge.

All of the wood was hand hewn by public workers into a monumental masterpiece and dedicated by FDR in 1937. Went to find Trillium Lake but was no parking available. It was Saturday and very crowded.

Marcus and Faiths flight was delayled and will not be arriving until tomorrow afternoon.

Day 38 Found the deal of the trip.....breakfast for $4.00. I mean eggs, pancakes, homefries, and choice of bacon or ham. This was at Zigzag Mountain Cafe, you guessed it, in Zigzag, Or. Faith and Marcus finally made it after lunch. After dropping their bags at the RV we headed for Little Zigzag Falls, hiked part of Hidden Lake Trail but was to far to finish before dark.

I scoped out a BBQ restaurant yesterday that I wanted to try, so we went to Skyway Bar & Grill for NW BBQ cooked by a cook from Texas and tasted pretty much like good BBQ in Georgia. The one thing different was a blackberry BBQ sauce that was suprisingly good, if you are into sauces.
