The mosquitoes were waiting for me when I awoke.
Today will be another down one ridge and back up another. I will need to carry large amounts of water again as there are few sources.
My first stop was Ranger Springs, an amazingly active spring
This spring is also popular with a bobcat
The area is lush with water loving plants like this one
I hiked through another burn area with a fair number of tall stumps.
Finally I entered Crater Lake National Park!
I found a nice place to camp near a pond where I rehydrated my body
As darkness fell, the pond came alive with the sounds of the resident frogs.
Nice sounds to fall asleep to!
Thanks for reading!
