Enjoyed amazing swimming holes and scenic ridgelines for the last week. Great time in Chester and got a teeth cleaning from Dr. Webb - the hiking communities dental ambassador !! Saw Terminal geyser, Subway cave, and am sitting near Burney Falls, a natural spring waterfall that puts out a consistent 100 million gallons a day ! Soon to hitch up to Ashland real quickly and enjoy a tour of Ashland, Bend and Crater Lake with my girlfriend! A great way to spend a birthday. Did a 40 mile hike yesterday, that included Hat Creek Rim and spectacular views of Lassen Volcano and Mt Shasta !
