Pacific Crest Trail Map

Oregon (in 20 minutes)

Oregon Update (in 20 minutes)
- After having a really good time with the locals in Medford we jumped back on the trail at Fish Lake WITH MY DAD! We asked him to come hike to Crater Lake with us and he started packing! We waited around town another day for him to arrive and we all headed to Fish Lake.
- Nice reunion at Fish Lake with Sourdough, Turtle and Magellon. Really, really good to see them again!
- Started the next morning and hiked a bit slower than normal with my dad. We shortened our days a bit while he was here, but it was a nice break! We did about 15-18 miles per day... Pretty impressive for my dad to be able to jump back on a 1,000 miles later and do so many miles!
- Dad got off the trail at the Divide Trail junction, which apparently many hikers do. We waited and waited... About 45 minutes later I decided to continue forward without my pack to see if he was ahead and waiting for us... But we were at the last water source of the day and I didnt think he would keep going. I went about a mile up and turned around. When I got back to Dumptruck Tortoise was walking up. Glad it was only an hour detour!
- Walked into Crater Lake campground and camped with a bunch of hikers. Olive Oil, Popeye, Trip, Sweep and
- Dad did our laundry and went to the buffet with the other hikers while we hitched down to Fish Lake to get his car.
- Got the first car that drove by to give us a ride and he was super cool! He was a parcs and rec guy that has worked for the park for a really long time. Its always neat to meet people that are so familiar with the area! He dropped by his house to grab us a beer and some things for the weekend and then drove us down to the lake.
- We met another couple while we were eating lunch. They bought us lunch and we took them down to Klammath Falls. Not too far off our track and they were trying to get to the amtrak station.
- Got back to Crater Lake with burgers and beer for everyone. Had a really, really fun night!!

Gotta run back to the trail now! In Bend and saw the doctor yesterday. Got antibiotics for the infection in my eye and getting a ride back to Sisters. Will write more soon!
