Re: Big Hollow (Trapper Creek) Fire article

Thanks for posting this link. Nice to see that there is a opening date goal of Spring 2021 (' Because USFS recreation managers are concerned that burned trees could fall and harm hikers, the Trapper Creek Wilderness remains closed. It will likely reopen in Spring 2021. '). One would think that the t...

Re: Rudolph Rim loop (includes Rudolph Spur)

Coincidence or intentional? You decide. Gorge FS added a area closure map link on Monday. Now Chip is just a common criminal in trying to avoid the covid crowds. Looks like he is not only out $5000 but we won't be seeing any new posts from him for the next six months. https://www.fs.usda.gov/crgnsa ...

Re: lookout alongside Salt Creek canyon high on Mt Adams

Looks like someone moved some of the boards since I was up there :o . IMG_0745.JPG My guess was that it was fencing for back when there were zillions of sheep roaming around there. Since that spot is located right next to a canyon or maybe there was an upper elevation limit they wanted to have to ch...

Re: Lamberson Butte new addition

So who are all these people? This post seems to have attracted a whole new audience. Maybe more posts like this would be a good way to increase the viewership of OregonHikers.org :D . Did you know that the USGS has Mt St. Helens and Mt Hood and Crater Lake all at the same threat level ('very high')....

Re: disappointing lifespan for shoes

Interesting. My Altra's are still perfectly good after only one year's use.

Re: Lamberson Butte new addition

weren't they going to install earthquake sensors up there? and then that got delayed for some reason? Yeah this is part of the USGS volcano monitoring system. If I remember correctly there is/will be one on Yocum Ridge and Barrett Spur also. This new one doesn't appear on their monitoring map yet. ...

Re: Adams: discovery of an unusual alpine lake

Bushwhacker, what took you there? Word of mouth, spotted from above, saw it on map, just random exploration? Looks like maybe August? You got to see it a little higher, without the sand/mud shore. Was there an outlet creek? Definitely random wandering. I always had old school paper topo maps (this ...

Re: Adams: discovery of an unusual alpine lake

Here's a few more from back in 2013. I was lugging a Nikon D300 with a 18-200mm lens back in those days. Heavy as hell but took great pictures plus you could use a polarizer filter.

Lamberson Butte new addition

IMG_1277.JPG Looks great doesn't it! Really adds to the wilderness ambiance. Must be brand new. No dirt or marks on it (no I did not yield to temptation even though I really had to pee :lol: ). That turd brown box thing had to have been helicoptered in. Wonder how this stuff works when it is buried...

Re: 2020 Snow Level

Cooper Spur on Monday (9/28). Does this qualify as a 'Chip hike'?
