Re: Serene Lake via Shellrock Lake 7/26-7/28/19

I love Serene Lake. Such a beautiful spot. Only matched by its reputation for mosquitoes. I aim for late Aug or Sept for that area. Love to hear you're introducing your kids to the Great Outdoors. BTW, it's possible to make a loop trip back to Shellrock from Serene that doesn't pass through Frazier....

Gumjuwac-Gunsight Butte Trail, 6/9/19

On Sunday 6/9 I hiked the Gumjuwac trail to Gumjuwac Saddle and then picked up the Gunsight Butte trail. I had never hiked these trails before and they were highly rewarding.

Re: McNeil Point, 8/19/18, or A Defense of Hiking in Crowds

Something is killing off an awful lot of trees on the ridge between Bald Mtn and McNeil point. You can see it in the first pic. Yeah, I noticed that too. I'm pretty sure it's not related to the Dollar fire, which didn't reach the ridge up to McNeil. Insects? Drought? On a related note, I was struck...

McNeil Point, 8/19/18, or A Defense of Hiking in Crowds

A week ago Sunday I headed up to McNeil Point to enjoy one of my favorite places on Mt. Hood. Fri or Sat would have been cooler and less hazy, but I couldn’t get out then. https://photos.smugmug.com/2018/McNeil-Pt-81918/i-WVFfVsv/0/f39181e5/XL/IMG_7942-XL.jpg You all know McNeil Point, so I’m not go...

Re: Thunder Mountain-Skookum Lake-Baty Butte 07-01-16

Thanks for the great report, helping to keep lesser-known hikes on everyone's radar. Also, thanks to your frequent flower identification, I am slowly learning the names of things beyond lupine and paintbrush. I liked the last photo of the skyline, very peaceful.

Re: Mt Adams Shorthorn backpack

Looks like a beautiful trip. Thanks for reminding us of places other than Mt Hood to go for trips! Just one more place to add to the to-hike list.
