Oregon
Starting: Section E7 - Elk Lake Campground
Ending:  Section E9 - Moraine Lake

9 am: Over-priced but delicious breakfast at Elk Lake. After breakfast I walked down to the water and found a comfortable chair in the sun & digested for a couple hours. Dried out my sleeping bag and caught up on my journaling.

12 pm: Back to the restaurant for an over-priced but delicious lunch. Met Billygoat (not THE Billygoat) on my way out. He was waiting for Batteries & Pepperjack and planned to drive them to his home for a zero. I chatted with him before heading out. My destination was Moraine Lake, 5+ miles off the PCT.

5:30 pm: Writing this journal entry from a campsite high on the ridge above Moraine Lake. The plan is to get up early, stash my gear in the bivy & summit South Sister. Then it is a 28-mile day to Lava Camp near McKenzie Pass where I will meet my family the following day…
