My wife, 8 years old son and I made our first attempt at climbing South Sister on Friday.
That's great! Love the photos. I've taking the 3rd of my 3 boys there on Monday. It's a rite of passage for us. Bummer to hear about the mosquitoes :(

Re: Newbie, looking for suggestions close to Vancouver, WA

Coldwater Peak from the South Trailhead. 14 miles. 3,500 feet EG. Unbelievable scenery. Still my favorite. http://www.oregonhikers.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=21824 That's the first one that came to mind for me too. Mt St Helens has a uniqueness you can't get anywhere else. Paved roads all the way to...

Re: Mt Thielsen

Hey Kelly, thanks for the trip report. I love that you're the young one at 62. That gives this 49 year old a little hope :) I totally appreciate your comment about it feeling like a 5.9. I will definitely be in chicken out mode when I return there one of these days. (I got about half-way up 6 years ...

Great TR on an area I know very little about. Surprised to hear about the frost!

(Ugh between the pine bark beetle infestation and ever-more-frequent forest fires is the new normal. )

Re: Lewis River and Quartz Creek

Great idea leaning the pole up against that downed tree. Never done Quartz Creek. I'll need to look that one up. Thanks for the trip report!

Re: Misleading information, Silver Star Mountain page

Thanks Sapo for the heads-up. You're right that approach to the North trailhead has really regressed over the past few years. We'll have to get that updated. Sorry you ended up having to turn back :( That paragraph was intended to refer to the approach from the South (Grouse Vista) but re-reading th...

Re: Heresy at the Big-O: Eagle Creek fire didn't destroy the gorge forever

Businesses were shuttered for months, hundreds had to evacuate their homes and trails in the area, which hold a special place in many people's hearts, have yet to recover.

Hi Mike,
I love that you're including the screenshot from GoogleEarth. It's a great way to get a quick overview of the trip before digging deeper in the map. Why do I keep forgetting how beautiful that area is? I need to get out there....soon!
