Today I walked the 2000th mile of my hike! The first few days outside of Ashland we had to hike through very thick smoke due to forest fires off to the west - visibility was down to less than 1 mile for several days. Otherwise Oregon is incredible and my favorite section of the trail so far. Glaciers, craggy peaks and jade lakes make Oregon feel more like Alaska or Patagonia - but this amazing landscape is right here in the continental U.S.
650 miles to Canada! You can read about my experiences in Northern California here on the Muscles Not Motors blog.
