Re: (Return to) Snowy Tamanawas Falls (Dec 26)

Hah, thanks Tom. I've visited the falls a number of times in the spring so I know all too well about the spray. :lol:

Re: (Return to) Snowy Tamanawas Falls (Dec 26)

Dumb question- in this report as well as the one from a few days ago, this is the "closest" photo of the falls. The summer trail continues just a little further for an unobscured view of the falls. Any reason why you didn't go to the end of the summer trail? Avy danger? I know the cross slopes are a...

Re: Sandy River bridge on Ramona Falls Trail

While I can't say to what degree this impacts any replacement project, the Sandy River is a designated Wild and Scenic River and that designation adds another level/stage of analysis to any project which could potentially impact said river. In other words, because it is the Sandy, the FS likely must...

Re: Timberline snow info...

Well, here's roughly the same view, 2 days earlier, from the summit of Bald Mountain. It shows a bit more towards the west. Couldn't do much about the clouds!

Re: Timberline snow info...

Well, this photo is from 5/7 from Bald Mountain looking towards the mountain: http://www.smugmug.com/photos/i-wZ5PcGD/0/L/i-wZ5PcGD-L.jpg I only hiked to the viewpoint so I don't know of conditions beyond the PCT/Top Spur/McNeil junction. Also, someone just posted a photo tonight of one of the Parad...
