Water, Water Everywhere

The rain came in today, so I wisely stayed in place and used the day to invest in some quality relaxation and eating. It also gave me a chance to dry my clothes, make repairs, check my supplies, and do some thinkin’.

I did take a couple of long walks, enjoying the misty beauty of the landscape. I found a Forest Service shelter with a beautiful fireplace and wood stoves built in 1936 by the Civilian Conservation Corps; I learned about the natural history of the Mountain Lakes Wilderness (including that Brown Mountain and Mt. McLaughlin are composite volcanoes built up from older shield volcanoes around a huge caldera); and I met Temmele and Anna, two young Canadians out to cross Oregon (and whom I subsequently convinced to get a cabin of their own to get out of the rain. I should get a commission, really).

A thoughtful day. I’m including some pictures of Fish Lake in the rain, which was ghostly and lovely—so, lhostly (which is better than “glovely,” I think).
