Belknap Lava & Mt. Washington

McKenzie Pass

I'm baaaack!

11 hours on Greyhound and I made it to Sisters, OR. Once at Sisters I still needed to get to the trail head at McKenzie Pass. This was the first random act of kindness encountered on this trip. Patty Morgan had drove by once and said to herself, "if he's still there when I come back, I'll give him a ride". I was and she did, so it only took 45 minutes to hitch a ride to the trail head.

After being up for 24+ hours I was really tired. The temp is in the 80's & 90's with clear skies. It was a scorcher crossing the Belknap lava fields at noon. I was on the trail at 11:08. I had spectacular views of Mt. Washington.

Tonight I'm camped a couple miles south of Santiam Pass lulled to sleep by ATVs in the distance.
