This was a three-night trip to Klamath Falls, Oregon. On my way down there on Wednesday, I stopped at Smith Rock State Park and scrambled up and over Misery Ridge and Asterisk Pass. Thursday, I found wildflowers on the Modoc Rim (on the east side of Upper Klamath Lake), then went up to Crater Lake and snowshoed to the top of Garfield Peak. Friday, I drove west on Green Springs Highway to the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument (just east of Ashland) and explored Hobart Bluff and a little bit of the Soda Mountain Wilderness; I returned to Klamath Falls via Hyatt Prairie and Lake of the Woods. Saturday, I returned to Portland via Odell Lake and Salt Creek Falls along Highway 58.
