Got food and lunch at Shelter Cove, then put some miles in.
Even at 6,000ft the afternoons are still in the high 80’s. I try to do most of my miles before noon.
At least the nights are cool… rarely more than 60 and frequently in the 40’s.
Aruuugh! Ripped the crotch out of my hiking pants! I sewed it together using dental floss, but I’m gonna need new pants.
I was afraid of the pesky mosquitoes finding the hole. 😳
I did it trying to climb over an almost four foot downed tree. Damned trees.
Luckily there’s an REI in Bend, OR.
The Sisters are nice looking. These are old volcanoes near Bend. Wish we could see them better.
Reached McKenzie pass and got a ride into Bend. Got my pants and food at REI.
Here are my pants in all their glory. Yeah, I can’t sew worth beans.
