Re: how would you interpret this mountain-forecast.com table?

I have no idea why they would plaster that U.S. map in the middle, across all three columns. If that weren't there, I think the columns would be more obvious.

Re: how would you interpret this mountain-forecast.com table?

I'd interpret it to mean exactly what it says. There are three columns: AM, PM, and night. In the AM and PM periods, the highs are higher than the lows, but the temperature is expected to be steady overnight. Looks like a slight warming trend in that example. 28 degrees early Monday morning, warming...

Re: Newcomer!

Ditto what RJ said, though I'm not sure I'd limit things to the galaxy. :) Find a Wallowas map and start planning some hikes. Search for Wallowas hikes on this website. Send questions via posts or PMs (personal messages) to authors of trip reports. It's really hard to go wrong in the Wallowas. And w...

Re: Strawberry Mountain Wilderness in mid-September?

Yes, that does sound nice. Depending on how I'm feeling I might give Onion a shot. Worst case, there's no water and I have to backtrack to Little Strawberry.

'Course, the fires may make it all moot, we'll see.

Thanks again, both of you.

Re: Strawberry Mountain Wilderness in mid-September?

Thanks, leiavoia. I hadn't thought about starting at High Lake TH, but that does seem to break the trip into better segments. It's nice to know I can camp at those little lakes, too. Now if the fires will just cooperate...

Edit: Where is Onion Meadow?

Re: Strawberry Mountain Wilderness in mid-September?

hot and dry? I've only been there a couple times in the spring when it's better. look at fire smoke maps, it could be downwind from major fires Thanks, Jerry.

Those of you who've been to the Strawberry, what do you think of it as a mid-September destination?

Re: Saw my first Black Bear

http://texasbb.net/files/Miscellaneous/thumbs-up-right-80x.jpg It's always exhilarating to see one of those, frustrating when it gets away before the camera gets out. I still haven't sighted one in the Cascades, but have seen quite a few in the WA Blues. Go east, young man! Go in May, go solo, move...
