Arrival at Crater Lake

Crater Lake Beauty

Long dry hike today 24 miles with no water except an off-trail spring
I chose to skip, so I had to carry 5 liters of water (Ugh; about 11
pounds). But the goal of Crater Lake made the going pretty easy.
Rolled into Mazama Village about 2:30, took a coin operated shower
while washing my clothes, picked up my resupply box from Trail Angel
Numero Uno Tom, who's currently hiking the Wonderland Trail with
Vivian, gave away some food to Cloudkicker, Gnar, Fester and Frog (yes
from france) and headed up the remaining 4 miles to the crater rim and
the lodge trying not to sweat (limited success but I don't think I
smelled too bad for dinner. The food was fabulous and my room is on
the top floor with a great view of the lake and the full moon which is
rising above the caldera. Pretty spectacular! All the tourists here
are perky and I'm falling asleep with dessert at 7:30 !
Tomorrow another 26 potentially very hot miles without water but I
should still be able to meet Jake at Willamette Pass Friday night and
hang out/potentially hike if he can find an interested friend to drive
a second car.
Off to bed...
