The only water crossing, about 2 miles in.
The trail is mostly shaded and soft forest duff, but the final stretch is hot and sandy.
Rocks and a small crater near the top.
Finally a view!
Looking north towards the Three Sisters, Broken Top, and Mt Bachelor
Zoomer on the peaks to the North
Me and my best hiking buddy.
Odell and Crescent Lakes, view south towards Thielsen and Crater Lake
Found a witness benchmark.
