Oh my goodness that is some wind! We are going in with the girls in about a month; I know the area is windy so will definitely keep that in mind! Glad you ladies had a good time!

Despite the wind, it sounded like a great short trip. Clearwater Lodge is indeed a great place. They have an amazing breakfast!
