Sep 18, 2019 - Cousins at Mayfield Lake

Cousins at Mayfield Lake Sept. 12 – 15, 2019 About two months after an Enns Cousins Reunion near Troutdale, Oregon, three of the Pacific NW cousins, and spouses, did a first-ever camp-out together at Mayfield Lake. From Lebanon, Oregon, cousin Janet, and spouse, Clint, came in their travel-trailer. From north of Seattle, double-cousin Nadine, and spouse Paul, came in their motor-home. They were accompanied by their cat. And from Lacey, it was Mary Anne and me. I’m the third oldest of the Enns cousins. Janet is the youngest. Nadine is just...

Jun 9, 2018 - Mayfield Lake

June 3-7, 2018 This was either our seventh or eighth annual camp-out at Mayfield Lake Campground. It’s owned and operated by Tacoma Power & Light. Camping reservations are handled through Washington State Parks & Recreation’s website. Four “RV units,” with seven people from where we live, had lake-front reservations. The first afternoon, four more friends drove in for Happy Hour around the campfire. The weather was cloudy and a bit chilly the first couple of days. But the temperature gradually went up as the week went along. Trout...

Jun 9, 2017 - Annual Mayfield Lake Camp-Out

June 4-7, 2017 This was the sixth or seventh time we’ve been on a group camp-out at Mayfield Lake. Most waterfront sites get reserved quickly. To get waterfront sites, reservations had to be made September 2016—nine months before. By doing that, our group could get six premier sites in a row. When we approached our site, we saw that Mark and Lin had already arrived and set-up. They were three sites from us. Within an hour, Captain Paul was backing his StarCraft tent-trailer into his site. And soon thereafter, Caroline guided her Minnie...

Jun 19, 2016 - Mayfield Lake

June 19-21 Early afternoon we were on State highway 12 (White Pass Highway), on the bridge crossing the Mayfield Lake. Our site in Mayfield Lake Campground was on the shoreline, #43. Our group had five sites. Three of the sites were next to each other. Friends Mark and Lin were setting up in their site. They’d checked in just a few minutes before we got there. Half an hour later Mary Anne’s sister and husband pulled into the site next to ours. Chuck and Kitty had left their place in California’s San Fernando Valley earlier in the week. We...

Jun 15, 2015 - Fourth Annual Mayfield Lake Camp-out

June 8-11, 2015 The weather was on our side for this week’s camping on the shores of Mayfield Lake. In fact, the first couple of days it was almost too much “on our side” with temperatures in the high eighties and afternoon winds. But I have no complaints about that. To get lake-front campsites, reservations were made nine months ago-- last September! Within a few weeks after the group of us made our reservations, all sites but one along the shore were reserved for the second week in June. That site got taken a couple of months ago by a...

Jun 15, 2014 - Mayfield Lake

June 9-13, 2014 Mayfield Lake Park is one of two Tacoma Power and Light Parks on the Cowlitz River. Both campgrounds are on Tacoma Power and Light lakes and were created by dams. Mayfield Lake is just west of the small town of Mossyrock, while Mossyrock Park on Riffe Lake is just east of there. This was the fourth time we’ve camped at Mayfield Lake and the third time in this Tacoma Power and Light campground. Each time there, we’ve camped with friends. This time, rather than camping up in the trees with limited views of the lake, all four...

Aug 1, 2013 - Mossyrock, WS (Mount Rainier)

We spent two nights at a nice little RV Park in Mossyrock, Washington. This was our base to check out Mount Rainier National Park. On our drive in to the RV Park we saw a sign for “U-Pick-It” blueberries. After we finished setting up our rigs all of us drove over and picked blueberries for 30 minutes or so. Each couple ended up with approximately 10 pounds. On the drive in to the park it was somewhat foggy so we were not sure if we would be able to see the mountain or not. Fortunately for us the fog did dissipate somewhat, but the sun never...

Jul 31, 2013 - Mossyrock, WA (MT RAINIER)

Yesterday we arrived at a really neat RV Park in Mossyrock, Washington for a brief two night visit, and a close up visit to Mt. Rainier. Our first day started with our group picking Blueberries at a pick your own farm close to the RV park. Our band of six picked a combined total of 30 pounds in about 30 minutes, they are some of the best tasting I've ever eaten. Today we drove to MT. Rainier about 40 miles, and got to see some great waterfalls, and a good close up of 14,400 foot Mt Rainier. We were fortunate enough to get a fairly clear...

Jul 30, 2010 - Lake Mayfield, WA

Lake Mayfield Marina & RV Resort July 25-28, 2010 It’s a beautiful and enjoyable sixty-mile drive from our house to Mayfield Lake. We got onto I-5 at Exit 108, and off at Exit 68, turning onto Hwy. 12. If we’d stayed on the highway, we would’ve gone over White Pass, then down into the Yakima area. As it was, we had wonderful views of Mts. Adams, St. Helens, and Rainier. But sixteen miles later we turned off the highway. A couple of miles later, we entered the Marina & Resort with a “nose-in” site. We camped with friends Paul & Sue. Our...

Jun 18, 2009 - Last Day in Oregon, on to Washington

Yesterday was our last day in Oregon and we had very leisurely day. Kevin ran some errands, including getting the oil changed in his jeep AND getting a small crack in his windshield repaired that happened on our trip to the Columbia river gorge. While Kevin was doing all that Betty got in a couple of hours of work. In the evening we decided to go to a casino that is about 30 miles away. It is the largest casino in Oregon, but that is not saying much. If you have ever been to the Indian Reservation casinos, you know that they are not nearly...
