Re: Hking to Ice Lake in the Wallowa

I don't know if this is the place that was in the ad, but we have rented from Wallowa Llamas before. They are based out of Halfway, which is on the south side, whereas Ice Lake is on the north side, so I don't know if there would be an extra charge for all that driving. In 2013 we rented two llamas ...

Re: three misc finds

I have found rubber bands in national forests before, usually a couple dozen scattered around in one area like a bag of them was dropped and forgotten. I've been told it's from beargrass harvesters. I can imagine the rubber bands cause all sorts of harm to wildlife, so it really makes me angry when ...

Re: Hiker rescued off Gorton Creek trail

And I don't understand how people's phone batteries die out there so quickly Cold weather and "older" phones can make your battery die quickly. (I hate that a phones are only designed to last a few years.) I can't speak to Androids, but in my experience iPhones eventually get bad at holding a charg...

PCT around Red Buttes on OR/CA border would likely be okay then.
Not sure, but that area may have burned in the 2020 Devil Fire.

Re: Oregonian broadcasting popular trails

Jamie Hale is not to blame. He's doing his job, and he is far from alone. I see lots of publications and websites going for easy eye candy. That means showing photos of the most beautiful hiking spots, which also happen to be the most popular.

Re: Which Trail/Campsite is this?

Below is the view from the spot on THD that everyone goes to. I don't see that rock below, and in other photos I have Mt. Adams is further to the left from the slopes of Mt. Hood. My guess is that the photo was taken from one of the other summits of TDH that people don't normally visit because the o...

I think this is a new bridge over Tish Creek...fact check me on both of those.
New, yes, but it was installed before the fire. That bridge was helicoptered in on February 28, 2017, just six months before the fire, and it managed to survive.
