| After a cool night in the Warner Valley campground...
|| ...we gathered our gear to start backpacking.
|| Backpacking good!
|| We planned to head northeast, starting on the PCT.
|| Our route (green) would take us to several lakes.
|| Pat ("The GO"), Allen ("TGM"), and John -- ready for the trail.
| Heading up Flatiron Ridge.
|| Drakesbad Guest Ranch overlook.
|| Resort pool ("Drakesbad-bad").
|| Trail lunch.
|| Kings Creek crossing.
|| The GO wisely removed her boots.
| Dry boots & socks, happy feet.
|| One of these people left her boots on, not so bright.
|| Boardwalk meadow protection.
|| Park Place adjacent to Boardwalk.
|| The Grassy Swale had a distinctly autumnal look.
|| Camp in the Grassy Swale or press on to Swan Lake?
