Re: Water filtration suggestions

Tablets like Katadyn Micropur MP1 do the trick for me. Lighter and smaller than any filter. No pumping or squeezing. Same chemical as in municipal water supply. Kills Giardia and Cryptosporidium.

Don't use iodine pills or household bleach. Blech!

Re: Wallowas Ridge Walking: 7/7/21-7/9/21

Thanks for the comments everyone. It looks like early voting indicates the Google Earth video tours are of some value. As a mapping and data geek, I love Google Earth for the ability to zoom in, scroll and spin around and for route research and reliving past trips. Bosterson: Your climbing and scram...

Re: Paradise Park Snow Report: 6/23/21

Did Mississippi Head loop again today (6/30/21). Wow! lots more snow melt since last update on 6/25/21. - Paradise Park mostly free of snow. - Zigzag River was the highest I’ve ever seen it. Still fairly easy to cross. - Passed a guy who said the Sandy River was running very, very high. - Other toug...

Re: Join Me On An Awesome Adventure

I am doing the timberline trail on appx Aug 27, for 4 days. Would you be interested. My post are in "Timberline Trail in Mid August". Hey Dave! The time frame you mentioned, beginning August 27th for four days cuts too close to my anniversary. If it were a little bit earlier then I could swing it. ...

Re: Timberline Lodge to Paradise Park, 6/23/21

Hey Dylan! Looks like we just missed each other. I didn't see any other footprints in the snow, so you must have come after me.

Fantastic TR! It's always interesting to see the same thing from some else's perspective.

Join Me On An Awesome Adventure

Anyone interested in joining me on a hiking/backpacking trip this summer? Going by myself is great, but sometimes it's a good change to have some company. My trip reports give a good idea of my hiking style and a little bit of my personality. Maybe we are compatible. I've got a few more interesting ...

Re: Morgan/Summit/Freezeout Loop: 6/4/21

Great trip report on an awesome-looking trip! Did you camp or do it in one day? Boy, I really want to get out there sometime, but so far from Portland! I did it in one day, starting a 5 AM. Even then I still had plenty of time to clean up, eat, and drive to check out Hat Point Road. With long dayli...
