Re: Bagby Trail to Silver King Lk Nov 2018

That was a pretty good romp! I did that quite a few years ago - the trail gets much fainter as you leave the hot springs, but it is really pretty-it feels really wild. I love Silver King Lake - it is quite beautiful there. Was up at Cottonwood meadows last weekend and the lakes/meadows/swamps up the...

Re: Oregon Hikers Maps feature is dark

I'd switch to leaflet - I did up a page for myself that has all the features I need. It really wasn't that hard either. There are a TON of plugins for Leaflet. Anyone who is reasonably good with javascript would pick it up very quickly. The only thing google maps has on leaflet is the superior aeria...

Re: Ten Essentials on EVERY hike?

I am probably over equipped but I take my pack with 10 essentials (plus some) on every hike. I would rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

Re: Oregon Hikers Maps feature is dark

I'm guessing that is due to the google maps policy changes that were recently done. It is the reason gmap4 shut down - google changed the billing to have a greatly smaller "free" tier, and now requires a credit card be on file in case you go over. Many people have migrated away from google maps for ...

Re: alpine lakes

There are a multitude of lakes in the Olallie basin you could backpack into - there are also 3 or 4 on the Red Lake Trail (which connects to the Olallie Basin). I doubt there is any snow there now. Still a bit early for snow at that elevation.

Re: they didn't all burn

It is from a Snotel site - I believe they are for measuring rainfall. Here is a page describing the various instruments at a snotel site:

It is interesting to see one up close....

Re: Old Frazier Mountain Road vs BotW Elk Lake Road Comparison?

It has been a few years (6 or 7 probably) since I drove the Elk Lake road. But, I would say the Frazier Turnaround road is worse. It is VERY narrow in spots and has LOTS of big potholes. You could easily get there in a 4WD rig, but it is still a slow and bumpy 4.4 miles. Going in from Shellrock adds...

My intended suggestion was to call or email the contacts listed on that page.
Well, that would make a lot of sense, now wouldn't it? I feel stupid now..... :oops: :)

If I find out anything, I will post here just to close the loop. Thanks for being patient with my slowness....

Have you tried Wallowa County Museum?
Interesting idea but we are home now and I didn't see much of any web content on their website other than a few pictures. Maybe next time I'm out that way I can stop in.

Re: Camp Halton at Aneroid Lake in the Wallowas

My daughter and I were up there this week and I was searching for some history on Camp Halton and came across this post from long ago. Unfortunately, the linked article is gone, and the wayback machine didn't archive it, so I couldn't read it. Anyone know any of the history? Other than it is owned b...
