Sept 2 (and 3): Warm Springs to Mt. Hood
"The miles came easily today, starting at 7:30 am, a quick 6 to the first water, 11 by 11:00am, lunch w/ Buffalo. He's trying to evade the crowd + I definitely understand this. I did 20 miles by 3:30; I thought I would camp at Timothy Lake, but the abused camp sites, wind + early hour spurred me on. Little Crater Lake was gorgeous. Stopped at Seeping Spring @ 6:00 pm. Happy to see only 2 hikers, but soon the camp was overrun w/ people. Definitely some attitudes about thru vs. section hikers, which irritates me and makes me miss being alone. I'd wanted this, but now I regret being in the herd. i miss Polar Bear! T-Lodge tomorrow. "
