Found: Deep See boot @ Elk Lake Creek Trail #559 on 12/14/2019

Found this water boot at the crossing of Knob Rock Creek. It's black & gray, size 8, right foot.

Re: #511 South Fork Roaring River - September 12, 2009

Well it's been ten years since Paul's exploration of the beginning of this long lost trail. I'm happy to report that more of it has been found and am hoping that eventually even more can be located. The problem is that the old maps show the trail right next to the river when actually is stays higher...

Are there any notable omissions from the BLM OR/WA Carto Basemap for this area?

That map looks pretty good. At first glance, all I see missing are a few trails: the west end of Red Lake, Potato Butte, Lodgepole, Fish Lake and Olallie Butte.

Re: The case of missing Monon Lake

Maybe Google is getting some of their map data from the forest service? The map below is from a forest service webpage. Apparently, once you're out of the national forest they aren't too interested in details. It shows the same truncated version of Island Lake. Interestingly, it also shows a trail g...

Re: The case of missing Monon Lake

Not to muddy the waters, but why is the Monon Lake Trail #729 also missing from the forest service map? https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/mthood/recarea/?recid=52970 All of the other forest service trails in the area are showing properly. When I first noticed Monon Lake and the trail were missing, I t...

Re: The case of missing Monon Lake

Now you see it: Where is Monon Lake - zoom 3 mile scale.jpg Now you don't: Where is Monon Lake - zoom 2 mile scale.jpg Here's a 300% browser zoom of the 3 mile scale that shows a stream leaving the northeast side of Monon. This is a fictional stream. When the snow is melting and water is flowing, th...

Re: Happy Birthday!

I wish I'd seen your comment yesterday Rob. I'm sure there's a wisecrack that could have been made about the title of this thread and your advancing age. Alas, it's too late now. You're a year older and there's no turning back now!

The case of missing Monon Lake

Why would Monon Lake be missing from some online maps? I noticed a few weeks ago that said lake is not appearing on some maps, such as National Forest Service, National Weather Service, my brother's navigation display in his new truck, and also the ArcGIS map here on OregonHikers.org. Where is Monon...

Re: USFS Oak Grove Work Center/ Abandoned

Well it appears that the Oak Grove barn hasn't been completely abandoned. We were checking it out yesterday and someone's been putting a new roof on it. I don't know who's been working on it, but it would be cool if the students from Timber Lake Job Corps were doing the work.
