Day 8: 7/14/10 Big Creek CG, OR to Sumpter, OR 155 miles
It got cold last night - 30F degrees or so. I love my cozy sleeping bag (Marmot Pinnacle, ladies regular ) and it only weighs 2.5 lbs!
Matt is not as enamored with his Big Agnes Encampment . I think he needs the down version ( 0 degree).
Anyone out there have the Storm King? Is it cozy?
Started off with a hot breakfast - duraznos con crema (peaches and cream) oatmeal.
Weíve had these packets sitting around forever (leftover from Mex).
I guess forever was too long. They were pretty clumpy and hard. Yum.
Before we left home, I had started making some little ADV mascot guys.
Some were like Coney, the safety cone, and others were just random.
I thought it would be fun to leave them along the trail, for other ADVers.
I ended up saving the majority for the TAT, but this morning I had Trayce pick one out.
Matt already knew which one Trayce would choose...
We didnít want to go all the way back to Seneca to get on the trail, so Matt asked Norm to take us to the Frazier Point Lookout.
Norm picked some nice roads for us.
Cows! Good morning, ladies...
Here comes Gravitycheck...
What? Cows donít like gravity?
Now I thought I'd find some great link for "cows don't like gravity" but the best I could do was this .
I guess I don't do enough drugs to fully appreciate cow-anchulas
What a beautiful morning.
A little water crossing...
Ooh - it looks like weíre about to eat it here...
But, we didnít. Just slipped a little on a rock.
