Re: Mt Adams 9-16-21

Apparently they dug out the summit for the construction. From page 43 of "Ever Wild - A Lifetime on Mt Adams" by Darryl Lloyd: Actual construction began in early summer of 1920, with Jones and Schmid doing most of the work. Other men helped for brief periods. Photos by Jones show a partially framed ...

Re: Goat Rocks

Between Goat Lake and Snowgrass Flat has lots of great camp sites I noticed them. The challenge now is water. A few creeks between the lake and Snowgrass are running, but most are dry. Many of those otherwise great campsites are a long ways from water. I guess those who come prepared with water bot...

Re: Goat Rocks

Right, that's why I chose Jordan Basin. When I walked past the lake, there were many open sites, but that was probably after some people left. It also seems like there is no decent place or privacy for doing, um, what bears also do (in the woods - or the middle of the trail). And I bet the winds com...

Re: Goat Rocks

There was a lot of hardware up there like there had been a tiny lookout.

Goat Rocks

I have wanted to return to Goat Rocks for years, with a focus on the Goat Lake side. This trip had a short 4.5 mile hike up the Goat Ridge trail to camp in upper Jordan Basin for two nights. The first day had great sunny weather, and then lots of clouds moved in for days 2 and 3. I would add that co...

Don't try to follow the far more abandoned trail along the east shore :)
I did - the forest convinced me of the error of my ways.

Re: Mt. Adams High Camp, Sept. 10-12, 2021

Remember that the glacial lake is basecamp for the North Cleaver climbing route. It looks pretty daunting but actually was described to me as a class 2 hike - as long as you stay on route. It's a rock route once the snow melts, as it has this year, until you get all the way up to the ice cap, I thin...

Re: 9/7/21 - 9/8/21 Herman Creek to Eagle Creek via Chinidere, Wahtum

Since you had an extra day, you could have walked back to the HC trailhead on the Gorge trail! I think the connection is 8 miles. Though part of it is right next to the freeway, so not so nice.

No fast food place to get a soda with ice in CL? That seems strange.

Re: Gnarl Ridge from Elk Meadows trail

There was a large log quite a ways up. Some people didn't want to do the jump that I posted a picture of and were going up there.

Re: Gnarl Ridge from Elk Meadows trail

Yeah, so this guy - Newton Clark - got his first name attached to one canyon, and his last name to the next one? But the glacier above gets the full name? Somebody had too much IPA that day. Hyphen removed in the original. Btw, there has always been logs fairly close by when ever I have hiked this r...
