Day 102, 35.5 miles
Umpqua National Forest
The trail passed Thielsen Creek and Mount Thielsen in the morning. Long, waterless stretches today. Midday had to hike down to Six Horse Spring for water. Evening hike was up and over a rocky pass beside Cowhorn Mountain. On the other side of the pass I found a sandy tent site. It was on a rocky cliff overlooking a lake 500 feet below. Nice sunset. Solitude.
I woke in the night. The moon was so full and bright. I took a picture of my tent.
