Day 3 Welches to Lake Simtustus near Madras 79 miles 5084 ft climbing

Left Mt Hood RV and immediately  begin 15 mile climb up to Mt Hood Summit. Again we hit moderate amount of rain. The summit is wet and cold, and glad to get on the down hill. Soon rain stops and temperatures warm up. It isn't long before the landscape changes from dense mount pine forest to much drier scenery. The RV park at the lake is 5 miles off Hwy 26,  with steep  climbs of up to 15%.

Simtustus RV park provides us a separate RV trailer for our use, with full amenities and sleeping for 4.
The owner and staff as well as many of the guests took good care of us. One of the guests (a veteran) took Dave out in his boat fishing. Dave caught 8 fish, which we had for dinner when we arrived in Dayville day 5.

Since our RV was at the entrance, several vets staying at the park came over to visit.
