We just got back from our annual camping trip to Lake Wenatchee in Eastern Washington. We have been camping with this group since our kids were wee tiny. My family cheated this year and semi-camped as we didn't get our reservation in soon enough and everything was full. Fortunately, we have some very generous friends who own a vacation home down the street from Lake Wenatchee State Park and we were able to sleep there. December was the month that we last visited this beautiful area so I put in a photo for comparison. The kids are standing in front of Lake Wenatchee almost in the exact same spot that we parked our beach chairs this trip. No nordic skiing this trip, just lots of sunning, swimming, and playing with a really great group of friends.
