A visit to Sarah Hendrickson over the weekend. This woman is unbeatable. Likable, kind, competent, and a generous host. She is working on a fire crew in the Willamette National Forest outside of Eugene. This area is so beautiful! -aqua blue rivers, endless forest of fir, cedar, and pine, and free camping on public land. From her porch you can see the southern most mountain in the Three Sisters chain.
On Saturday night we followed a fire-road framed by Alder saplings to a sleep spot overlooking a sea of green. High on this ridge Adam found the best walking stick I have ever laid eyes on.
