Re: GoalTechHikes Crater Lake Triathlon 360 loop - Swim-Bike-Hike

Sounds like a great adventure. How much water did you take with you on the bike to cover all that distance before you got to the waterfall?

Mike,

A really excellent trip report and experience with your daughter. Memories like the week you shared with her on the trail will last her lifetime and yours.

Re: Classic late season Indian Heaven trip

I've noticed that Indian Heaven has the coolest mushroom population of anywhere close to Portland. The number of different species and the sizes are simply incredible.

FS - Mountain Hardware SuperMega UL 2-person tent

https://www.rei.com/media/c03dfe26-d9ff-492c-a9c2-a83e062f2a66?size=784x588 This is an great tent that I've put only 14 nights into. It is in excellent condition, has been cleaned and stored properly between uses, and is very light-weight. The tent is four years old and I've detected no degradation...

Good lord, that trip report does not sound safe or sane! Hats off to them for completing it but it could have also ended up in disaster.

Re: St Helens: McBride Lake vicinity

Does all that water just flow through the lava flows above and then pop out at that "spring"? That's a lot of volume of water but the same thing essentially happens for the Mackenzie river just a 100 yards from the edge of Clear Lake.

Re: Diamond Peak Wilderness, 8/15-8/19

Great report and pictures. I'm planning on that area next year in late August but I will be keeping your experience in mind and will prepare for bugs. I did 50 miles from Elk Lake to Odell Lake earlier this month and the only area I found mosquitos was at the junction where trail from Waldo lake to ...

Re: Timberline Trail in a Day

Wonderful trip report. I keep meaning to do a 1 day TT loop but something always gets in the way. How much of this did you end up walking versus jogging?

Re: Southern Oregon PCT (85mi) Section Hike - Ashland to Crater Lake (Part 3)

I think I just answered my own question. It's either hwy 62/Mazama Village or Fish Lake resort.

Odell to Hwy 62: 82 miles
Odell to Fish Lake: 132 miles

Parking a car for several days within the boundaries of CLNP may be troublesome.

Re: Southern Oregon PCT (85mi) Section Hike - Ashland to Crater Lake (Part 3)

A great finish to your section hike reports, Elemental. I enjoyed reading them and and viewing your photos.

I'm going to be going southbound next year from Odell Lake past Crater Lake. With your experience, where would be a good spot south of CLNP to leave a car if I am doing a two-car shuttle?
