Re: What did you find in Satellite photos today?

I've found a few small airplanes and at least one helicopter, but never a jet airliner.

Helicopter near the mouth of Mosier Creek:

Re: Can someone please tell me which hike this photo is taken from?

Also, note that once it does re-open, the closest trailhead to Park Ridge (Breitenbush Lake) is at the end of a horrible road.

Re: SE Oregon Flowers

Oh, you were on the NORTH end of Ninemile Ridge. Skyline Road is FR 31, and it accesses the south end of the ridge at a much higher elevation. That's probably not open.

Although it was snowing while I was hiking Ninemile Ridge, nothing accumulated, and was snow free on the trail except for a few sections near the summit on the north facing slopes.
So is Skyline Road fully open?

Re: SE Oregon Flowers

By the way: what part of Ninemile Ridge? I'd think it would still be buried in snow.

Re: SE Oregon Flowers

This purple plant might be in the mustard family, was growing in masses near some of the moister areas. Blue mustard. It's an invasive weed. This looked kind of like a heather: Something in the mustard family. Maybe a penny-cress. In the pea family, I think this is an Astragalus, rather showy! The ...

Nor will you see any goats above Paradise.
I saw one last year on the Pebble Creek Trail. (Just one, though.)

Re: Best of Rainier from the Paradise area?

After reading the comments, I think I would like something similar to the view of Mt Adams from High Camp, if that is even possible in the Paradise area. Then try the trails west and north of Panorama Point: Glacier Vista, Upper Skyline, and Pebble Creek. This is from Glacier Vista, about 1.4 trail...

The view of Rainier from the top of Pinnacle Peak is pretty awesome.

Re: ACCESS TO THOMAS LAKE TRAILHEAD???

It's about 19 miles up the Wind River Road to Road 6507 and then 4.6 miles to Road 65 then a left turn a short distance to the trail head parking. Is this what you refer to as the "detour"?? Any problems with Road 6507 other than snow?? Yup, that's the detour. FR 6507 is just fine. The only drawbac...
