A view back towards Ashland

Like, I Am Sooooo Bored

It was pretty boring hiking today. This part of southern Oregon is fairly flat with dense forests...not many views. On the plus side, the trail was easy and soft.

I slept in as planned and didn't hit the trail until 8AM. Nothing really exciting happened on the trail. There were some nice flowers, and I spooked a small herd of deer.

I took a mid-morning break in the woods. Four through-hikers passed me within about 20 minutes. The first was Roadrunner. I already forgot the names of the other three, but they were all from Washington. During the afternoon, I passed the reservoirs, Hyatt Lake and Howard Prairie Lake. The trail didn't go to them, but I could catch glimpses of water through the trees. I could have detoured to the small camp store at Hyatt Lake for some junk food. I’ve still got plenty of munchies from my resupply in Ashland, so I kept going,

At 6:30PM, I was pretty bored and stopped at a flat spot just before a paved road. Not a very exciting day. I had too much time to think and started really getting homesick and missing Boulderbunny. 900+ miles seems like a long way still to go.
