Re: Closed hikes in Field Guide

Wow. That took forever but I suppose they're finally satisfied about the stability of those cliffs. Thanks for the update. In the Gorge, several trails are currently being worked on: Nesmith Point, Wauna Viewpoint, Oneonta, Wyeth. I'd expect these to open within the next year. In the recent past, I'...

Re: Different wildlife

Great shot! Photographers can take as many pics as they want; hunters get one tag per lifetime. Just to be clear to those who may not immediately recognize it, the ram is a California bighorn, not an aoudad. Bighorn sheep are native but became extinct in Oregon; successful reintroduction efforts beg...

White River Loop (Mt. Hood) 10-12-21

I figured Tuesday was possibly the last day to get to any elevation on Mt. Hood before the snow came in that evening. Also nursing a gimpy knee, I chose a more leisurely route that explored a loop I’d never tried before. From the White River West SnoPark, I headed up a track alongside the multi-chan...

Re: Mill Creek Wilderness Loop - October 8-10, 2021

Great report and photos, especially the Milky Way shots! Glad to hear the trails seem in good order. That elevation gain on Day 3 surprises me - almost negligible.

Re: Different wildlife

Barbary sheep a.k.a. the aoudad are native to the mountains of north Africa (Morocco to Egypt). In Oregon, they along with various other exotic goats, sheep, and antelope are present on a couple of private ranches east of the Cascades as trophy targets (for the price tag of a few thousand $$$) for t...

Re: Siouxon

So how do I upload pics? 1. Log in and then click the Edit icon (little pen) on your post. 2. Scroll down to the bottom and click the Attachments tab. 3. Select and upload the relevant photos. 4. Use your cursor to place individual photos and click "Place inline" A bit cumbersome but it assures a p...

Re: Green River Trail MSH

Actually the uppermost Green is in the monument (about three miles, heading at Norway pass), followed by about four unprotected mostly National Forest miles adjacent to Goat mt, followed by the big-tree monument section (also about four miles) before hitting Weyerhaeuser ownership. Thanks for the c...

Re: Wahtum Lake-Indian Mountain-Tomlike Mountain Loop(ish)

Many thanks for this report. Glad to see that the Indian Springs Trail is back in commission, probably thanks to the PCTA.

Re: Green River Trail MSH

A section of the upper lower Green River Valley was included in the National Volcanic Monument (signed into law by none other than Ronald Reagan), which was created for "research, educational, and recreational" purposes only. That old growth area, which was undamaged by the blast, is mentioned in St...
