Thanks for the comments guys. It's the Willamette National Forrest about 80 miles from Eugene OR. near the Cougar Reservoir.
Yes..... It rained most of the time but light with a few heavier showers not lasting long enough to kill the fire.These trees act like giant umbrellas. It was about 55f at night. My buddy had a Wally pad in my loaner JH and had no complaints, I was perfect with a modded PL for a quilt and a light bag used as a top quilt.
There are miles of lava fields in the area also.
1/2 the state of Oregon is public land. My new back yard! (:
