Mt. Jefferson is no joke, these singular Volcanic mountains are making a big impression. Today we had quite a bit of climbing, alot of smoke, continued plagues of bees and great views. We climbed early, but it was worth it.
After climbing back down, we started ascending towards the Mt. Hood Wilderness…with a stop in Jefferson Park.
The smoke made the climb very difficult, we even became dizzy at times and the air tasted like smoke.
We climbed way down below 5000 feet and set up camp at the aptly amokey, Cigar Lake. Beautiful day, but hopefully tomorrow will be a bit less Humidor.
