July 22 – Oh Those Sisters

Amongst the whales and waves my journey continues polished by sand whitened by sun I flow toward destiny where new adventures await, anxiously.

Horseshoe Lake to Sawyer Bar – Three Sisters Wilderness
30.7 miles

Today was full of reflections of the Continental Divide Trail…the hikers, the land, the immense space, and the many changes that could happen in just one day. Three Sisters had all of these.

Here is a glimpse of the day. Hang on for the ride.

  2. Oregon is surprising me too. In the past, the shots I’ve seen have always been forest shots of Oregon. You are capturing other places that are really beautiful. Love the list, it’s perfect…except for the mosquitoes. 🙂

  3. I was on your turf this spring. Welcome to my turf. Love that last shot!

  4. Mosquitos s*ck don’t they! Nice campsite and a taut pitch too! -Heading out tomorrow to Tuolumne Meadows!

  5. That last “sepia” shot is a gem!

  6. My old stomping grounds. Keep it up.

  7. You are truly a gifted writer.
    All those events in one day will always
    spark memories of this day for years to come.
    Look forward to your next post

    Good travels to you
