    Locale: The West is (still) the Best

    I recently completed the Oregon portion of the PCT skipping the Klamathon fire (means I’ll have to visit Ashland again with its great restaurants et al … sigh ..guess someone has to do it).  Here are some pics (may do a trip report)

    Started off on the California side next to Mt Shasta, so will use this as a scenic “placeholder”

    Some more from the more scenic areas of NorCal

    Marble Mtns under a full moon ..

    More Mt Shasta since you can never get enough Shasta …

    Some lakes of the PCT where the locals catch fish and drink beer.  Due to trail magic, I caught beer here ..

    Howard reservoir above

    Fish Lk from the PCT camp.  Out of order but a bit of a climb from Howard Prairie reservoir to Fish Lk …

    Of course the unforgettable Crater Lake NP.

    Shortly after taking this, smoke engulfed the area so no famous shot from “the Watchman” (yet another reason to return).  I was just ahead of the smoke the rest of my journey

    After awhile the trail went through some deep forests (and a few persistent hordes of skeeters) so didn’t get much besides shots of mountains in the distance … 3-finger jack was enshrouded in fog when I went over.

    Here is Mount Jefferson after going through Jefferson Park.  This part of the trail is being rerouted for next year

    Ollalie Lk was fine though I got in at night.  The next day I hiked until 1 AM seeing this as the sun went down

    Locale: Right there

    It is a beautiful stretch of country. Smoke, so much smoke. Lucky your timing was pretty good. Thanks for sharing.
