I spent most of the day up at Mt Hood cruising around on my bike checking out camps sites for the summer. I haven't camped in the woods before, and this year I really want to see if I can make it a week away from streaming movies, my cell phone, computer, etc. I found an awesome place that looks perfect close to Roaring River Campground. I would like to take just what I need on my bike, but then I couldn't bring the dog. I will drive instead of ride.
It's amazing to me how many maintained trails and campgrounds there are on and around Mt Hood.
I think it would be fun to ride to the Grand Canyon or Mt Rushmore and camp on the way there.
