Finally, we arrived at Fish Lake just as a rainstorm started. We huddled in the porch to the bathroom structure while we did research on the trail ahead.
It turns out that the fire near Crater Lake has continued spreading, and has finally closed the rim trail. As a result, we'll have to skip Crater Lake -- one of the highlights of Oregon.
This is really sad for me because I have a continuous path of footprints stretching from the Mexican border, and it ends here -- after almost 1,800 miles. Oh well, I guess. I'm not willing to do the, like, 50 miles of road walking to go around Crater Lake, so this is the price I'm paying.
