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.

Gooseneck Loop

Hiked Gooseneck Loop at Cottonwood Canyon. Took the shortcut as the Pinnacles area is closed. We followed newish flags past the wooden arch, but the flags contoured around peak 1443 and not up and over. On the east side of peak 1443 we headed up a drainage to the fence as there was no longer much of...
