Snowmobiling at Frog Lake, Oregon

Last night the weather finally turned colder and over a foot of fresh snow fell in the mountains. Our friends Tyler and Holli met us at our house Saturday morning a little late due to icy roads. We hitched up our snowmobiles and headed to Frog Lake SnoPark, which is about 7 miles Southeast of Government Camp off Hwy 26. Traffic was horrible and after about 2.5 hours we finally made it to the SnoPark. It was already quite busy, but we found a place to park and unload the sleds. It was partly sunny and temperatures were in the upper 20s.

We packed some firewood and chairs in our gear sled and hitched it to one of the snowmobiles. Katie and I rode off toward the lake to unload the gear before returning to pick up our friends. We found a nice spot next to Frog Lake.

We took turns snowmobiling the nearby trails. The fresh powder was fun to ride in and the snowy landscape was beautiful to take in.

Back at Frog Lake, we stayed warm by our campfire. We saw several other groups of people snowmobiling, dog sledding, and snowshoeing in the area. It was nice to be able to enjoy the snow. This was the only storm in the Cascades the entire month of December. Hopefully the new year will bring more snow and opportunity for new adventures.
