Crescent City was just a gas, eat, sleep and go town. The morning is crisp. The humidity makes me bundle up and put on my hippo hands. Can anyone pass this photo op? Come on. This tree stood out from the rest, at a roadside stop. A rogue sequoia Smith River Gasquet, CA Gasket? Gas..K Oh no! I was trying to keep a low profile. I'm still wondering where I lost my papers? Back in Baker City I unloaded my tail box at the motel. I've gone over many possibilities. I don't remember shaking out the bed cover, and may have thrown the cover over my dayminder. I've decided to return to that motel. I finally break out into some sunshine. The woods have been shadowy and cool. I shortcut past Grants Pass. Do a couple miles of freeway then a left at Gold Hill onto hwy 234. Gas and go. I went up this road a ways, but it turned to gravel and my tire is getting really thin...no cords showing,yet. Interesting bush/tree. Someone, I met along the way, suggested hwy 199 and it has turned out to be a wonderful ride. Almost no traffic, scenic, meandering, but always bearing NE. Prospect, OR Looking straight down 30-40 ft. Don't loose your hat! Or camera. Lots of statistics. Water acres, cubic feet of flow, yada yada. A lot of water compressed into this narrow gorge. This stump was cool. It's alive. Some roots grafted together to feed the stump and it barked over and repaired itself. It's late and cold. I want a motel. At the Crater Lake Nat. Park entrance. That's what happens when traveling off season. Too late to see the park so back out to the main road and head south. Those clouds look cold. Refuge in Fort Klamath. The motel has no TV, it does have a small kitchen with organic quich and pita pockets, etc. Closed of course and the only thing left to eat was twigs and berries. They have lots of videos. For food they direct me to the general store, a mile away, who 'might' still be open. It was and I had a good burger. A rustic store with a griddle and deep fat fryer. Hunter, gun magazines, a few heads on the walls. Back at the motel I fall asleep to a Shrek movie. I'm now down near the point on the left.
