Re: Neahkahnie Mountain from North 1/24/19

A classic Oregon view! :D

Both the south and north trails on Neahkahnie are badly eroded with a lot of exposed roots. The trail could use some TLC.

Re: Govt Shutdown Impact Updates (and ? about Nordic Shelters)

Not all the bathrooms are closed, unfortunately. You may have seen this tweet on Friday from Governor Kate Brown, whose husband cleaned out a trashed bathroom at a sno-park. The photos are shocking. What goes through someone's mind when they come across a full/overflowing trash can and decide to add...

Re: Wild rhododendrons?

They aren't as showy as domestic rhododendrons, but they are still very lovely in early summer. This is from the RRSNF in 2014.

Re: Govt Shutdown Impact Updates (and ? about Nordic Shelters)

The photo does not make sense though as the bin is empty so if the implication that people were just throwing the trash on the floor it's a false one. It's explained in the link I included.

Friends of the Gorge sent this out , along with a discouraging and disappointing photo from Tamanawas Falls Trailhead. https://gallery.mailchimp.com/db90f2927cb51e80dca6a09d2/images/...

Beautiful shots, Tom! once wildflowers start popping up around town and at Catherine Creek skiing is just not on people's radar. I'm a snowshoer not a skier, but I definitely lose interest in snowshoeing once March gets here. I'd much rather be hiking amongst the grass widows at that time of year. :D

Re: Stone House?

That property is now part of Franz Lake Wildlife Refuge and I once wrote to them to ask if they knew anything about the place. Unfortunately they ignored my message and I never got a reply.
