Day 121: Near Tipsoo Creek (Mile 1869.5)-Near Timpanogas Lake (Fire detour, off trail); 28 miles
Since it was North Star’s 28th birthday, we decided to walk 28 miles. We began the day on the PCT, but a couple miles in, the trail was closed due to a forest fire. We were prepared and already had the map of the reroute, which initially led us through a forested area.
As the detour continued, it turned off a trail and onto a gravel road.
Day 116: Near Brown Cabin (Mile 1771)-Below Imagination Peak (Mile 1796.5); 25.5 miles
In our morning’s walk, the Pacific Crest Trail, covered with small red rocks, wound through large grey lava rocks, creating a striking contrast.
Bone Lady caught up with us and we walked together for a few miles. As we hiked, Mt McLaughlin came into view.
In this post, we describe Day 115 of our Pacific Crest Trail thru hike in detail. We hope our description gives you a glimpse into our everyday lives as we walk through the forests of southern Oregon. But first, here is a brief summary of days 112-114:
Day 112: Near McDonald Peak (Mile 1715)-Ashland (Mile 1727); 12 miles
After 6 hours of walking, we hit a highway where a friendly stranger named Debbie took us to Ashland. So helpful!
