Sunday, September 11
We managed eventually to get back to the trail, which resumed its journey through an extensive lava field. I managed to get new shoes while we were in Bend, and having shoes with cushion made a world of difference on the bumpy rocks that made up a good portion of the trail today.
Near where the trail crosses the road up from Sisters and Bend there was a neat lava rock tower that was built in the 1930s and has view ports pointing out nearby mountains.
Only hiked a little over 13 miles today thanks to starting around 3pm. Our tents are set up next to a dirt road near a trailhead and there are a surprising number of people out here on a Sunday night.
Feels like it might be another cold night. Will get to test out my new thick wool sleeping socks.
