Olalie lake with Mt. Jefferson

Lat 45

Tree squeaking in breeze
Between equator and pole
Easy forest miles


Early start to clear our tents out of the day use area. The store opened at 7 so Kpax got coffee and more fruit pies. We weren't headed for the trail until 8 am where we ran into Mehap and No Day. Kpax informed Mehap that he'd decimated the pie inventory. Lots of laugher ensued.

Quick, easy miles through forest all day but warm, still air made the climbs challenging. Just before a creek at the 20 mile mark, we passed the latitude of 45 degrees North, putting us half way between the equator and north pole. Perhaps a not-so-fascinating factoid.

Crushed the last 7 miles like a grape. Thanks to Cherub for the grape phrase. I got into camp first and had to clear a spot for us to camp. I was starting to wonder if Kpax was going to show but he eventually did. We ate dinner in the dark. Kpax's 24 hour pie total is 8. I think he will shit pie soon.
