Susanna, Jasper and Rori take on Southern Oregon

In late July and early August, my brother John and I headed out on to the PCT for a 8 day, 140 mile backpacking trip in Southern Oregon.  During this time, Susanna and Jasper met up with their friend Rori from Wisconsin for an exploration of their own in Southern Oregon.  This exploration included 3 nights at Lake of the Woods, 2 nights at Crater Lake National Park and 2 nights at Paulina Lake in Newberry National Volcanic Monument.  Half way through the adventure, we all met up at Crater Lake.  The whole event was a huge success.  Here are some of the highlights:
