Re: $36M "restitution" sought from 15 year old Eagle Creek Fire setter

I'm heartened by how much kinder this conversation is than the ones that broke out on the PH Facebook page. The conditions were ripe for a major fire. Could have been caused by anything. It's happened before. It'll happen again. We are now part of nature. It will actually make the gorge healthier to...

Re: Hardy Ridge past Phlox, then roads to radio towers

Did you start from Bonneville as well? Nope. I'm a chubby middle-aged desk jocky. :lol: I started on the east side of Birkenfeld Mt, cam...
