OMG it’s finally been fixed! I was so used to it being wrong for so long. Still, I bet not every map has been updated.

Re: Wizard Way (Mt. Hood Meadows) 7-17-21

When I was putting the new trails into OpenStreetMap, I did wonder whither the "Upper." Looks like there's a moraine up there that could take you to around 9000' without too much trouble.

Here is a good emerging photo of a ground cone. Looks similar to your photo.

Re: Mt Hood National Forest Blowdown Update

At least 60 trees lying across the Vista Ridge Trail as of July 5. None is a major obstacle though, because they're not on a steep slope.
