Lost gold band ring near Coldsprings creek. MtStHelens

$100 reward for recovering my lost gold band ring; it was my grandmother's. I think it may have been lost when I was climbing up a very brushy bank after crossing ColdSprings Creek.

Re: Newton creek crossing?

I hiked to Elk Mountain June 15. The trail was clear until the top of the ridge above Elk Meadow. I would think most of the snow on the Elk Meadow Trail from the high point down to Elk Meadow will have melted in the past week. There were about 10 trees across the trail.

Re: Around Mississippi Head & Zigzag Canyon, 9/2/10

Thanks of the info. It is great to see your map and description. I talked to you in that very green draw about 5400' and wondered if you beat us back to the parking lot.

Great pics. How is the Newton Creek crossing? That huge log? or the nice foot bridge that was there last year?
