DAY 114 – Mile 1835 — Crater Lake

It’s great to be back on trail. Just finished the section from Ashland to Crater Lake, passing the 1800 mile mark in the process. The weather has been great, although very smoky from the various fires burning in the west. For the past several days, I have been hiking with a mask on, trying to save my lunges and throat. Yesterday, I felt I was finally back in the rhythm and did 38 miles into the Park. With just over 800 miles left to go I feel I can persevere to the end.

Crater Lake finally!
