Mt Thielsen

written Aug 8, 2017 @ 04:39 AM after hiking 24.28 miles

In the morning, Stephen drove us the 2 hours back to the trailhead, giving us a great tour of the North Umpqua River along the way.

Once we got to the trail, I ran into someone that loyal readers might remember from a loooong time ago: Hot Sauce Monologues! The last time I saw her was Silverwood Lake, 1,500+ miles ago! It turns out she is up here, shuttling people around the fire. Crazy.

So anyway, Scrappy and I hiked in some 24 miles, and here are the pictures because nothing else of note happened.

Mount Thielsen. No, I didn't climb it.

I got some fresh water from a snowmelt stream off of it, though!

Rocks, clouds, and smoke.

By the time you reach Oregon, even the trees have beards.

And this pretty sunset that was obviously cooler in person.
