Lost Creek Village

My friend Shellie and I attended a four day scrapbook retreat at Lost Creek Village on Chinook Pass last week.  We arrived on Thursday and came home this afternoon.  We did not have any trouble driving up to the lodge even though the last 1.4 miles was a very muddy dirt road. We were worried about someone trying to navigate through the mud in a small car, but everyone had SUV's.  The road was grated before we left for home. 

The Union Gospel Mission in Yakima owns Lost Creek Village. The facilities host year-round activities like youth camps, retreats, family reunions and other events. Activities include swimming, fishing, hiking, volleyball, rope courses, archery, pickleball and paintball.  Visitors can rent cabins, rooms in the lodge, or stay in Teepees.
The kitchen had an enormous ice machine and a huge walk-in refrigerator.
We got a little surprise when we got up on Friday morning and it had snowed overnight.

The scenery on Friday morning was just stunningly beautiful!
This is Shellie working on 114 Disney pages - her project for the weekend. The pages were just adorable.
Twenty-three people attended this event.
One of the great things about attending scrapbook events is that you get to see a lot of tools and learn tricks of the trade. This paper tote was just amazing. You could store a lot of paper, keep it organize and it folded down to a small suitcase size box on wheels.
