Google Photos Memories of Closed Trails

Perhaps it is the cast still on my ankle preventing me from hiking, but I've been feeling real nostalgic lately every time Google photos shows me a day from a trail that is now closed. Today's example, the Tanner Creek Trail from 2015. Last week it was a snowy day on the Nesmith Point Trail from 201...

Re: Elk Meadows and the Argyle Tree

I saw an Argyle Tree very similar to the Elk Meadow Tree in the Boulder Creek wilderness along the Umpqua River last spring, wondering if Dwarf Mistletoe grows down there as well?

Re: Elk Cove from Vista Ridge (Aug 25)

Great photos Tom! I've started appreciating that side of the mountain more and more as of the last few years. Your pictures tell the story much better than the ones I snapped with my phone a few weeks ago.

Re: Elk Cove and Pinnacle Ridge

It's more finding a path around the piles of tree trunks and limbs. The huckleberry bushes are encroaching on the trail a lot as well, but if someone is paying attention it shouldn't be too difficult to keep on the right path. The only part I got turned around on was near the Timberline Trail where ...

Elk Cove and Pinnacle Ridge

The upper third of Pinnacle ridge had numerous trees across it as I made my way up to the TT yesterday. All were relatively easy to avoid. The upper third/half of the Elk Cove trail was a mess with piles of dead trees and limbs blocking the trail. Navigation wasn’t a problem, it there were a few pla...

Good Hikes Near Spokane?

Hi Everyone, I'm going to be visiting friends in Spokane, WA this coming weekend. The snow level up there is still real low, but I'm fine with hiking in the snow as long as it isn't a highly exposed route. I'm going to stop and hike at the Deschutes River on the way Thursday, but should have all day...
