Re: Green Cyn/Devils/Kinzell/SRT loop, 10/31/20

Ran into the SAR Deputy you saw. He said it was two males, lost the trail in the significant blowdown. He was able to monitor their movements via cell phone and “coached” them back onto the trail and safely back to the road.
Not much of a story.

Hey Rob,
CSAR volunteers didn’t get a call yesterday so the incident most have resolved easily, which is fairly common. Did you get the Deputies name; Meyers or Teague or ?

Re: Masive blowdown & quick trail work. - McNeil

We thought about the Dollar Lake fire too, but carefully compared old and new satellite photos and that fire didn’t get that far south. There might have been disease in that area, but the satellite photos from the weeks before the fire show a natural green color that blends in evenly with the surrou...

Re: Mt Hood area trail conditions (Clackamas County)

These are the conditions AFTER the massive windstorm and tree blow downs on September 8th. The map isn’t showing general trail conditions, rather the extent of major damage and fallen trees blocking the trail.

Re: Cairn Basin Stone Shelter

Glad it looks like the shelter survived! In the summer of 1995 my sons and I camped in the Paradise Park stone shelter, imagine my surprise when my daughters and I returned the summer after and found it completely destroyed by a direct hit from a monster fir!! Gone are: Gnarl Ridge, Elk Cove, Ramona...

Re: Timberline Trail July 23-26 2020

For Huckleberry: The lady with the broken ankle was part of a trio of reasonably well experienced hikers on day 2 of a CWise hike from Timberline Lodge. Her fall sounds like it was just 100’ south of yours as she descended to the final thread of the Muddy Fork. And yes, the Timberline Trail is heavi...

Re: North Fork Eagle Creek (Estacada) riverside hike

Aaron,
You have me curious now.
Is the trail you were on, on the south side of the creek, or north?
