Hiking Down the Oregon Cascades

Well, thanks to a few factors, our great 2005 Pacific Crest Trail section hike did not flourish into the full 110 mile, 2 week backpack trip we had hoped. Instead, Ladybug traveled 52 miles (so far) and a smaller excursion is planned for later this week after I am over bronchitis and a couple of foot problems are healed.

Since this journal is going to occupy space already blogged in by The Moody Minstrel, this post will serve as in index for each day’s activities.

Update: At the doctor's advice, there won't be a week two as originally planned. I have an infection in one big toe and will likely lose the nail. I may lose the other big toe nail as well (it doesn't hurt, but has a blue spot). The bronchitis should be knocked down soon as well. I have an antibiotic called OmniCef that is supposed to take care of both. He told me to maybe go swimming instead.

Week 1, Day 1: Odell Lake

Week 1, Day 2: Whitefish Creek

Week 1, Day 3: Bingham Lakes

Week 1, Day 4: Tolo Camp Springs

Week 1, Day 5: Mt. Ladybug and Mt. Snabulus

Bronchitis is no fun. Take care and make sure it is licked before your next adventure.

On the bright side, you didn't get mauled by a bear.
