 Pacific Crest Trail - Little Crater Lake / Jefferson Park, OR 
We found this bark beetle crawling on the log and prodded it into the the light for a better picture. This bug crawled pretty slow so it must be a very nasty tasting bug.

One of the nice campsites along the trail. This was near June Lake and there weren't any bugs there to speak of. Pretty good for camping in July! You can see our food suspended from nylong bags. We never had any animal issues with our food on this trip and we usually hung our food farther from camp than this.

Jude Lake with two of our travelers on the far side of the lake. This lake had lots of salamanders in it and carpenter ants in the campsite.

Resting in camp after a hard day of hiking. Even though the weather was pretty dry, campfires were permitted and we used the smoke to help keep the bugs away.

We spotted a helicopter carrying water to fight a nearby fire. Luckily the fire never came close to us but it did cause portions of the PCT to be closed.

Here is our first close-up view of Mt. Jefferson from the PCT. This is a very rocky section and the Scouts very cautions crossing this part of the trail though the lack of trees made for spectacular views.

Campsite at Breitenbush Lake. This was the worst place on the whole trail for mosquitoes. The mosquitoes died in our food as we heated it up and we ate, then stayed, in the tents.

Sunrise on Breitenbush Lake. I'm sure this lake would be more hospitable in the fall but we had clouds of mosquitoes around the lake.

Sunrise on Breitenbush Lake looking at Mt. Jefferson. The mosquitoes weren't bad until the sun came up. I ended up leaving behind part of my water filter trying to get away from the mosquitoes.

Heavy snows lingered late and covered the trail. It was a great opportunity for the Scouts to use their route-finding skills. This is looking north back the way we came.

Climbing up through the snow was an easy way to lose the trail but we were able to take a sighting from a distant landmark and continue on our route.

Here is Tyler climbing up the trail through the snow. We saw a small patch of the dirt trail on the way up, but it was mostly covered in snow.

Mt. Jefferson looms larger as we walk farther south. When we started we could barely see Mt. Jefferson and now Mt. Hood becomes smaller each day.
