camp pioneer: w/e day 2



Sunday before last we drove about 75 miles to find Camp Pioneer, a Boy Scouts camp near the Mt. Jefferson Wilderness in the Willamette National Forest that surrounds Pine Ridge Lake.  The camp opened in 1936.  Closed for the winter, we had the place to ourselves.  The sun was shining, the fish were biting, and the air smelled wonderfully of pine needles.  I want to go back.
