5 miles of hiking • 1250' elevation gain • 1 night

After a wedding at Edgefield, we awoke in Edgefield, enjoyed brunch, and headed out on a hot Saturday to go find some swimming. I managed to fit all of Christy and I's backpacking gear into just my ULA Ohm, so we had a quick (but strenuous) hike into Soda Peaks Lake.

Our campsite had a precut pile of wood next to the fire pit (thanks strangers!) so we drank, swam, and fished into the evening, woke up and did more swimming and fishing, and then drove back to Portland.

In the summer, I don't want to hike; I just want to swim.
