The only way I can beat that is if I get a pic of one at the parking lot.
How about swimming across the river to Oregon?

Re: confused Mountain Goat on Dog Mountain!

Just up there yesterday Nov. 21, 2020. Coming down via the Ausgsberger Mountain route and solo hiker in front of us was shooting something with his phone. Told us to be quiet and that there was a mountain goat. Cool, that's the first time I've heard of one on the "normal" trail instead of over in t...

Re: Photos needed for Field Guide

I don't have any photos, but it's worth noting that the "Fall Creek Trailhead" is officially called the "Green Lakes/Soda Creek Trailhead."

This should help. A GPS track from one of my hikes. Dollar Lake is about 300 feet to the west of where most maps say it is.
OpenStreetMap, and any map source derived from it (like Gaia or ThunderForest), has the correct position of both the lake and the trail.

Re: Help with Dollar Lake trail access

I heard there was a wildfire fire at/near the lake a couple years ago. Maybe just look for scorched treetops and walk towards them? The fire didn't touch the lake. Its position is wrong on USGS topo maps. (Yes, I realize that yours was probably a sarcastic comment. :) ) why did they even name it th...

Re: Help with Dollar Lake trail access

The photo on this page ( https://www.oregonhikers.org/field_guide/Timberline-Dollar_Lake_Trail_Junction ) is from this summer. The trail is where Andrew is standing, but again it's not that obvious to anyone who doesn't know the spot (or isn't carrying a GPS). Again, no cairn there this year. I wen...

Re: Mt. Margaret 2020/10/31

I've seen statements that Adams is larger, but I've failed to find a single reliable source that compares the two mountains by the same criteria. One interesting factoid from USGS: Adams has produced a larger volume of eruptive material during the past million years than any other Cascade stratovol...

Re: Trail from Neahkahnie Mountain to Manzanita?

The trail (an extension of the OCT) begins opposite the junction of Nehalem Road and 101 and uses the power line corridor before working its way through a clearcut and then a dense brushy forest before hitting the gravel road just above the south trailhead for Neahkahnie Mountain. So, something lik...

Re: confused Mountain Goat on Dog Mountain!

Well the goat is still there, and has successfully multiplied! Four goats were seen on the eastern side of the dog spine on Halloween 2020, viewed from high on the East ridge of Dog mountain. That's awesome! You should post that on iNaturalist to bump the Washington range just a little further sout...

Re: Help with Dollar Lake trail access

The junction (which usually has at least one cairn) is in the only substantial opening along that part of the Timberline Trail that's filled with small trees. You might think that sounds vague, but it's pretty unmistakable. There are photos on both of these Field Guide pages: Timberline-Dollar Lake ...
