Olallie Lake

After a good off day at Bays Lake we finally had to leave. Jefferson Park is such a wonderful place. You could see why it is so popular.

For those that don't have reservations there are places to stay but they have to be hardened campsites. Unfortunately we saw one camper, probably a thru hiker, camping on a place where it will do some permanent damage to the grass. Sorry to see that. It would be expensive if a Ranger found them. We saw a Ranger there last year and one at Rockledge Lake this year5.

Today's hike was shorter as we resupply at Olallie. The first two miles were 1600' of elevation gain. We were familiar with this since we hiked it last year. I love the view at the top of the ridge as you look down on Russell Lake and straight at Mt. Jefferson. Gorgeous view.

The rest of the trip was uneventful as we met Kurt about 3pm with our resupply boxes. Both Desi and I were out of food. Just as planned but the side effect is we are now heavy with food on our first day out tomorrow.

Tomorrow is our first and only day on the Indian Reservation
We are nervous since an Indian can cause us trouble and we don't have any rights. The only way to avoid it is,to hike more miles than we have done. Just hopened for the best

Got a good picture of Mt.Jefferson over Olallie Lake and realized we camped at the base of it in the morning. It now seems so far away.

Started at 1689 at California / Oregon border. Now athat 2043
