Re: Hiking Lower Metolius with Kids

good report, thanks, I agree with your comments, good experience for your kids

I go there occasionally, for example a couple months ago.

The trail takes off from the end of the road, going in the direction of the river. It's pretty primitive though the first half mile or so.

Re: Truly giant trees of the past

someone of known height stands next to tree

someone else goes way back, then uses a stick like a pencil held out with your finger where the someone of know height is

then you just use that as a measure, count up how many of those heights there are to that tree

Re: Govt Shutdown Impact Updates (and ? about Nordic Shelters)

maybe some animal pulled trash out?

maybe some human animal pulled trash out looking for stuff?

maybe out of some sci fi story when the authorities withdraw and everyone goes crazy because there are no authorities enforcing rules? :)

Re: Happy Birthday!

yeah, an unacknowledged problem

people think it's okay to release balloons into the air without realizing it's trash

Re: Wild rhododendrons?

in the spring, a little later than ones here in the city, not as extravagant

sometimes, walking through Rhody thickets is a pain because they're dense enough and sort of interlocked
