Old Mazama Books

Hi, I ran across an old Mazama book while doing research on an area. I believe they were published annually, but only a few years seem to be available. The years are 1897, 1907, 1913, 1914, 1915, 1916, 1917, 1918, 1919, 1920, 1921, 1922, and 1923. The topics run a wide range of topics and are good f...

Re: Gmap4 - Enhanced Google Map viewer with topographic maps

Is it possible to use Gmap4 as a pseudo-Panoramio? To place a marker overlay with geolocated photos? Panoramio is dead and the Google Maps/Photos combo is pretty terrible.

Re: Drinking Stream Water

I do filter from lakes and tarns or flowing water that has camping upstream
What about if there's a dead deer fermenting upstream just around the corner?

I'd rather spend $15 and spend 2 minutes so I didn't ever have to worry about it.

Re: Drinking Stream Water

I don't understand much of this. If you have a hydration bladder in your pack, spend $15 and buy a Sawyer Mini filter at Fred Meyer. It takes 2 minutes to splice into your tube so you have an inline filter. It doesn't noticeably slow down the flow, either. I also use this setup while camping as a gr...

Re: Camera Recommendation for the Trail

I have an AW100 as well. It's not perfect, but it will take a drop and is waterproof. It also takes good pictures. I will never be able to take the same quality of pictures as the people with $5000 cameras and $2000 lenses who then spend hours on Photoshop. But, for the price and the convenience, th...

Re: Overheard on the trail

We were doing a short hike up the North Umpqua trail during late spring. We were a mile or so up from the trailhead. We had already passed through a few mudholes on the trail, so we were fairly muddy. Came around the corner and here's a guy walking towards us wearing dress shoes, light grey slacks, ...

It saw what it was about to be a part of and jumped off the cliff instead.
