Day 135

A vast burn area near Santiam Pass. 

Day 135: August 15th

Mile 1989.5 (McKenzie Pass) to Mile 2015

No rain today!

It was a beautiful day without any rain. A welcome change after the three days of being wet.

McKenzie Pass has a lava field on both sides of the highway so it was interesting walking through that. The trail passed through a very large burn area for many miles on either side of Santiam Pass.

We had trail magic at both McKenzie and Santiam Pass. Thanks Chef, Jerry Can, and Blue Fox.

Passed the 2,000 mile mark on the hike today.

I camped high on a ridge near a mountain called Three Fingered Jack.

Mileage: 25.5
