Walked and took breaks alone for the whole day, which was fine. Gave me a chance to make a call to my sweetheart in the morning and then on my later breaks do some reading.
Much of the walking was in forest cover today, and with the heat, was quite welcome. Didn’t really walk by many interesting landforms. Right before camp there was a lake that the trail passed near.
Camped with Wolfpack, JJ and Udi tonight. The others wanted less to walk tomorrow so they went a little further than we did today. I was pooped at the end of the 31, so pretty happy we had a good place to stop for the night. We are camped near Little Crater Lake…which is a very small pond like feature that is spring fed, very deep and cold (34 degrees). It is quite clear and dips down to over 20 feet within a couple feet of the shore. We are camped next to some public campsites and a neighboring camper brought over 4 Oregon beers for us. We think it may be a peace offering for his loud kids, but regardless it was a nice gesture and great to have a beer with dinner.
