For President's Day weekend, we rented a cabin near Mt. Hood in Rhododendron which is just outside of Government Camp. It was a little cottage with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a hot tub (which we actually didn't use at all), a kitchen, and a huge living space. The cottage was very secluded and the Zig Zag River was right off our deck. We had booked the trip before I got pregnant, so it was intended to be a snowboarding trip, but I was okay with not snowboarding this year and getting some much needed R&R instead.
Andrez and our friends, Lester and Rachel, all got to snowboard and said that they had an amazing time. The first day we were up there it rained, which didn't make for the best snowboarding conditions, but the temperatures lowered enough that night that Timberline (the ski lodge) got snow and everyone had a great second day. I can't say that snowboarding trips are as fun when you can participate, but it was fun getting to see the lodge and lifts and I'm excited to get out there next winter!
