Day 126: Mount Hood National Forest to Barlow Pass to Campsite

Day 126, September 6, Mount Hood National Forest to Barlow Pass to Campsite, 3.1 miles (5 km)

We left our little haven in the forest around 8 this morning. We stopped for gas, I bought a burrito, and by 9.30 I said my goodbye to the boys at Barlow Pass. The trailhead had a little pic- nic table and I decided I needed some sleep first. The last two nights we often had too much fun so there was barely any sleep at night. My body felt like it could use a few hours of napping. I decided I would hike a few miles in the late afternoon so I would be closer to Timberline Lodge, where I will be tomorrow. That’s for then.The three miles were spent entirely in the forest. Beautiful forest. Oregon definitely has charm!

I came to a little creek, saw a nice, flat spot to camp, had my tent up, ate some pasta (pesto flavoured) and updated my blog. Time for a night of quality sleep in the quiet forest.
