Re: Latourell Falls 4/22/18

I usually wouldn't drive that far for a mere 2.5 mile loop. I'd never even stopped there on my many scenic drives and bike rides down the historic highway. To me, this particular hike really feels different doing it one direction vs the other. So I usually do one loop, then turn around and do it ag...

Herman Creek PCTA Work Party

... as a gesture of appreciation (as long as the PCTA crew leader is there, anyway). I also signed up for two TKO trail work crews (Wyngant Peak and Latourell Falls) and one with Friends at Klickitat. They were all great learning experiences and I got to meet a bunch of really cool and knowledgeable ...

Re: GoalTechHikes Latourell Falls - Nobody there...almost

I had a small, slo-mo slip in the mud there at the beginning of February--not even enough to justify calling it a "fall"--that managed to tear up my shoulder. It's still messed up. Dedicated mud shoes are a worthy injury-prevention investment IMHO. For a narrow forefoot try the Inov-8 MudClaw; for ...

Re: GoalTechHikes Latourell Falls - Nobody there...almost

So, I’m a pretty advanced skier and have done it for almost my whole life.

(Get well! A shot of cortisone i...

Re: GoalTechHikes Latourell Falls - Nobody there...almost

Least favorite experience of the day: The mud required a little careful footing, but it wasn’t too bad. Definitely worth noting. I had a small, slo-mo slip in the mud there at the beginning of February--not even enough to justify calling it a "fall"--that managed to tear up my shoulder. It's still ...

My flower for the trip down was the early buds from what I believe are Salmonberry bushes.

Re: GoalTechHikes Latourell Falls - Nobody there...almost

You bet! It'll be interesting to see where people venture out this year. I've got a couple more "Oregon Hikes" up my sleeve for hopefully this weekend. Two new ones for me.
