HIKING THE OREGON PCT

THE ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME!

SHELTER COVE RESORT TO BIG LAKE YOUTH CAMP

07/20 to 07/26

BIG LAKE YOUTH CAMP THE BRIDGE OF THE GODS

07/26 to 08/07

The last two and a half days were strange to say the least. We went slowly, in part because we wanted the adventure to last longer, but we both seemed to fall into a funk...

SHELTER COVE RESORT TO BIG LAKE YOUTH CAMP

07/20 to 07/26

It is taking me much longer to write about hiking the trail than it did to hike it. But reliving it is amazing! As we started week three, we had no clue that Oregon had such a varied landscape or that it would seem like we had stepped onto another planet...

MAZAMA VILLAGE TO SHELTER COVE RESORT

07/13 to 07/19

It is strange to be at Mazama Village and still so far from Crater Lake. 7.0 miles. In a car, seven miles is a few minutes, but on foot with a fully loaded pack, it is nearly three hours of walking!

DONOMORE PASS TO MAZAMA VILLAGE

07/05 to 07/13

This morning, as I was driving to work, I saw Mt. Hood silhouetted against an orange sky and I felt a physical pang of longing to be back on the trail. 455 miles seemed like such a long way, but the miles and the time flew by. We can't wait until we can do another one.
