Looking down into Eastern Oregon at the end of the first day - July 2003 My camp in the morning My camp in the morning with a fire to chase away pesky mosquitoes Campsite setting Oval Lake - pretty but the water tasted funny Looking down towards Madris - east of the Cascades The trail to Lookout Mountain Delicious ice-cold Senacal Spring water  way better than that stagnant Oval Lake stuff Barlow Pass on Highway 35 - a tough crossing for the pioneers
Looking north at Mt St Helens, Hood River City, Mt Rainier, and Mt Adams from Lookout Mt -  6525' Mt Hood to the north - elevation 11,239' Mt Hood to the north - still 11,239' Me and Mt Hood Me, my trusty Kelty overnight pack, and  Mt Hood My trail head is on that ridge above Badger Lake - elevation 4472' Badger Creek flows down this canyon - it's rimmed with huckleberries galore Return to the Jeep
One last huckleberry stop Heading back
