Hot rocky climbing
21 waterless miles
Campsite bone scatter


Passed the 1800 mile mark early this morning. Hot morning filled with rocky climbing which the feet did not particularly enjoy. We eventually reached a high point and could see in all directions. Klamath Falls, Mt. McLoughlin behind us and miles of forest ahead.

The miles seemed to slip by slowly and we arrived at our last water source for the day by 1 pm. 21 mile waterless stretch into Mazama Village. Ouch. Haven't carried that much water since the Hat Creek Rim.

I passed Puppy this evening who is suffering from a cold. I have her my nightquil gel caps which I'd been carrying since Cajon Pass. A little later down the trail I met hiker UB. He didn't know about the waterless stretch so I gave him a half liter of water.

I caught up with Kpax and he'd found a nice campsite. Then I noticed this huge pile of bones. Kpax kinda freaked a bit and said we shouldn't camp there. So, at 8 pm we headed down the trail and luckily we didn't have to go too far to find a new home for the night. Dinner was peanut butter and cheese with chips sprinkled on top all wrapped in a tortilla. For some reason I can't get Kpax to try it.
