Kilo had a Burgman ride from the Coast to the Mountains today. It's beautiful here in the High Cascades.

A tall tree on the trail to Sahalie Falls

One of the trails near the Falls. You can walk to the top or the river below.

This is the spot the last of the Kilo's Ashes will stay. A nice view of the Falls. These are the head waters of the McKenzie River. The elevation here is over 3000 feet. In the Chinook Native Jargon, Sahalie means "Heaven", or Sky. A fitting place to leave his ashes. These were spread on August 22, 2008.

Sun was coming through the heavy Coastal Forest along the trail to the Ocean Cliff. This will be the "Send-off" for some of Kilo's ashes. August 9th, 2008.

As we get closer to the Sea, the underbrush is getting lighter.

This is the spot. The ashes went over the cliff right here. Some settled on the side of the cliff, some blew out to sea. It's about 100 feet almost straight down from the top here to the beach.

Looking to the North, right around this little point of land (Called Crown Point), is the entrance to Coos Bay.

Looking to the South, you see Cape Arago Light House. RIP, Mark Irwin.

Camping trip at Dorene Lake. Today is Karen's Birthday! She did a masterful job of blowing out the "forest fire" on her cake.

Karen, Preston, Pat, and my hand. this is the group vroc toast to Kilo and Chuck Burt. 7 PM Pacific time, July 25, 2008, we joined hundreds of other vroc folks toasting the memory of these two men.
