July 27 – Toketee to Skookum (57 miles)

We woke to a dewy morning and moved the tent and contents to the sunny runway to dry out.

Mavrik found a comfortable spot in the sun, but I think he was wishing it was a couch!
We packed up and got on the road, but took time to spot and sample some of the ripe wild berries.
We passed a picturesque mountain marsh.
We had great views looking east over the Rogue-Umpqua Wilderness towards the Cascades.
Mt. Scott is in the distance, on the east side of Crater Lake.
We took a lunch break on the Castle Rock Fork of the South Umpqua river, and took a dip in the cool clear water.
We meandered the logging roads and passed several rock formations before finding our correct route.
We detoured to take a look at Skookum Pond and found a great campsite for the night, and NO mosquitoes!
Another great sunset!
