Yet another Trail Magic Day south of Barlow Pass in Oregon (just south of Timberline)! Very few people on the trail but we were fortunate to meet some fantastic Thru-Hikers! We met the following thru-hikers today:
NOBO Thru-hiker “Pender”
SOBO Thru-Hikers Jessica & Josh
NOBO Thru-Hiker “Pancake”
NOBO Thru-Hikers “Tuna Butter & Calypso”
We wished them a safe and fun journey, and gave them some Oreo Cookies and Starbucks Via Coffee packets, before they continued to their next milestone! A very fun day!
We slipped in a short loop around the Twin Lakes before heading back to our car at Barlow Pass. For such a beautiful day (with NO mosquitoes) the trail system was practically empty. Lucky for us and the Thru-Hikers!
