On a Windy Ridge

Easy hiking today. Loved seeing the lakes through this area, a nice change from trickles of streams and spring water flowing out of pipes. Got the word that the Klamathon Fire has grown to 35,000 acres and a portion of the PCT out of Callahan's Lodge is closed. We spent all morning hiking around this big basin. Decided to push on and dry camp at a campsite overlooking Mt Shasta. We thought we'd get water at Toad Spring but walked right past it. Then we thought we'd get water at Porcupine Lake. Walked right past that too. Didn't even see a turnoff. Ended up at our destination and got water 2/10's of a mile past our camp. Worked out fine. It is quite windy here on the saddle but we have cell service!
