Brian Donnelly chronicles his FKT on the Oregon section of the Pacific Crest Trail.

I perused the crater rim gift shop, bought an over-priced veggie wrap and topped off my bottles for the upcoming dry section of trail. As I munched on my wrap, I repeatedly called and tried to contact Yassine. I waited for a couple of hours, feeling a little out of place amongst the clean and carefree tourists. It grew dark. I was cold. I started to think that Yassine had maybe picked up a bunch of food from the gift shop and moved up the trail. I called my wife. She confirmed via Yassine’s SPOT that it looked like he had backtracked and was now heading away from the area. I finally decided to move on in hopes of catching up and felt confident that we would be able to reconnect in the next day or so. It was a bummer to waste a significant amount of time at Crater Lake, but it was a gorgeous evening cruising along the rim with the bright canopy of stars erupting overhead.
