    Claytor in the Rainforest

    I was sort of worried about dampness, but as always my Claytor shined.

    Cool! Where were you? Did it rain?
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    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! (:

    Absolutely and an awesome place! Reminds me a bit of Joyce Kilmer here in western NC. Not many places with that kind of cool and creative rainforest feeling left in the world.

    Thanks for the pics!

    Btw, I wonder what the surcharge on a tree-strap for that last pic would be? lol
