Three Fingered Jack Loop and Canyon Creek Meadows

We backpacked the Three Finger Jack loop, taking the Old Summit trail from Santiam Pass to Wasco Lake, day hiking up Canyon Creek, and returning via the PCT the third day. The hike from Santiam Pass to Wasco Lake was almost entirely through a previous burn (2002 Mt Marion?). We had good views of Mt ...

Hoh River to Blue Glacier

We just returned from backpacking the Hoh River to Blue Glacier . The Hoh River trail was nice with some large trees and lush forest. Views of the river were too few. The Blue Glacier was absolutely stunning and made the long, steep trek worthwhile. We hiked to both the lateral and terminal moraines...

Blue Glacier Links

There are two Trip Report links on the Hoh River to Blue Glacier page which go to hikes other than Blue Glacier (or maybe just on my computer)?

These two;
Hoh River to Blue Glacier (Olympic N.P.) 08-11 – 08-13-17 (goes to Plaza Lake)
Hoh river, Olympics (linked to Harry's Ridge)

Thanks!

Green Canyon - Salmon River Loop

We backpacked the Green Canyon - Salmon River Loop on Thursday and Friday. Hiked up to Green Canyon and Hunchback trails to Devils Peak, checked out Kinzel Lake (hoped for a swim, but it was very marshy) and over to Kinzel creek after passing the Kinzel Lake - Salmon River junction. In the morning w...

Owyhee Trip

Also visited the Owyhees recently. Unfortunately, it rained and we found our tires coated in a thick layer of clay and rocks coming back from Painted Canyon, so we avoided Chalk Basin and Three Forks. Did more tourist stops on the way back (Juntura and Crane Hot Springs, Sumpter, Granite sort of gho...

Punchbowl Falls

Hiked the Hood River area Punchbowl Falls for the first time last Monday. No cars in the lot when I started and only one other when I returned. Followed the signed East Fork Trail (labeled as the Cedar Trail on the field guide picture?) until it ended. Just as I put my phone away after taking a phot...
