A FEW QUICK REMINDERS:
1. Check out the photos (click on the thumbnails above, or here). They tell more of the story.
2. Click on the "My Location" text to the left to see where I've been for the past week.
3. Checks the "Stats" window to the right if you're into numbers!
WHERE I'M HEADING NEXT: (within 2 weeks, with some confidence ) Crater Lake National Park, Bend, Corvalis, Portland, Spokane. If you're in one of these places, I want to see you! Let me know.
So far, the scenery has been STUNNING. With such a wet winter, water is flowing from every crevice. Streams and rivers are everywhere, all the plants and trees are happy and green, and the flowers are amazing. I think i set off with over 100 lbs of gear and food, which have been tough to haul over the mountains. Today, I shed gear weight, and send things to where they need to be later on (warm clothes to where I'll be in the winter, trail mix for 2 weeks to where I'll be in 2 weeks). Thanks for reading!
