Cooper Canyon Camp to Three Points. 10 miles, 406 miles total.

I finally made it a to a place with a decent computer, and I was able to upload photos all the way back to April 23, so make sure you go back and see some of my photos. I tired to add additional comments to go with the photos, and I'll do some more updating later. There is still a lot of text that I need to add.

This is shot of the cabin at Glenwood Camp.

This is a photo of Jason and Leah. They gave me a ride to town today! Thanks.

I haven't talked about this in a while, so now seems like a good time to bring it up.

Everyone that is following this blog is invited to come to the town of Sister, Oregon for my "end of the Journey" celebration during the month of December, 2008 and early January, 2009. It's my plan to rent a large Mountain Retreat there and practice running a Bed and Breakfast. If you come, there won't be any charge for lodging, and I hope that I can accomidate everyone. I'll be running a shuttle to the Redmond Airport (near Bend, Oregon), and I'll help everyone if they want to go skiing at Mt. Bachelor or HooDoo Ski Resort. Both of these are within an hour (or so) from Sisters. Another way to get there is to fly to Portland and rent a car to drive to Sisters. In good driving conditions, this is about 3 or 4 hours of driving from PDX.

So, if you are thinking that this is something you want to do, here's what you need to do: Send me an e-mail to and let me know what kind of room(s) you will need (Queen or Twins), and the aproximate dates you think you will be there, if you are driving or if you will need to be picked up at the Redmond Airport. Right now, I'm planning on having rooms available from December 20 thru January 3, but I can expand the dates (earlier in December) if so many people come that there aren't enough rooms. If I expand the dates, it would be from about the sixth of December thru January 3.

Alaska Airlines has flights to Redmond from Los Angeles, Seattle and Portland.

I hope to see everyone in Sisters in December!

Hello, LA! It's good to hear from you. I'm at the Saufley's place in Agua Dulce ... I can't believe how nice it is here. It would be so easy to stay here for several days. I'm still ahead of the large crowd, but I'm also feeling the need to get back on the trail! Some other hikers are planning on beating the heat and leaving Monday night, and I'll likely do the same thing.

Keep in touch, and thanks for following my blog!
