Yesterday involved the departure of Jody back to Bend, some awesome cross country gravel road travel, some crappy traffic in Medford, a nice swim in the Illinois River and the lodging at the most bizarre place I have ever stayed, Sparkplug's motorcycle campground.
We rolled out of there early this morning and scooted over the border into California. Highlights of the day included: cliff jumping into the Smith River, a ride through the awe inspiring redwoods at Stout Grove, and riding through a giant Redwood. Sadly, Ryan, Jaime, and I parted ways in Klamath, CA. Hopefully they are getting home safe and sound right about now.
1312 miles, all told. What a weekend. I can't wait to do it again. TONS of far superior photos will be coming soon when Jaime gets his all up.
Met up with the guys in Sisters yesterday afternoon. Set up camp in Indian Ford. Went swimming in Suttle Lake and stopped into Camp Sherman for supplies and a look at the beautiful Metolius river. Packed up this morning and had breakfast in Sisters and it's onward to Crater Lake now.
