Re: Seeking: Volcano Viewpoints

Triangulation Peak is just under 7 miles from Mt Jefferson and offers this perspective... https://live.staticflickr.com/1940/44660082955_bbcef5fdbe_c.jpg If you went out to Park Butte (only 3 miles away), rather than shooting from Park Ridge, you might capture something closer to what you'd hoped fo...

The visitor's center might be closed, but I don't see any reason they'd close the hiking trails.
CRGNSA closed "Waterfall Corridor" this afternoon...

Re: Discover Pass flier on windshield

So it does appear that the pass is required for parking on any state recreation lands. But if Karl was so parked, why didn't they just give him a ticket? Wasn't my ticket. But a letter to the court stating there was no signage was unanswered, and presumed to have settled the issue. It does seem tha...

Re: Discover Pass flier on windshield

They have issued tickets down the road from GV, near where you started. But it's unsigned, and those (that I'm aware of) were dismissed when challenged.

Re: welcome to tick season 2019

Bad news, I found a tick crawling on me while hiking in the Memaloose Hills area today. So much for early season nonchalance. Swale Canyon, late-January. They're out there!! https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49589771103_54fc4ccc74_c.jpg So dinky, I measured it by counting threads on my pants. 1/3...

Re: Peckery thing at Crawford Oaks?

FANTASTIC!!!! We hiked up the trails on the Syncline and saw several of these great birds...unable to accept a Lewis's looking at Sibley's since we never see anything cool! Very distinct long beak. I came to PH just on the off chance someone posted about them...and low and behold--->Perkery thing c...

Re: Nester Peak

Those trees have grown a bit! Easy access right now (2/21), too. :) 20200221_7895_sm.jpg Got to wondering what the history may be between the two spelling variations -- anyone know more? Found this recollection that offers a brief history of the lookout, while using both spellings, in the opening pa...

Re: Bootprints on the Primrose Path (Feb. 16, 2020)

That they're very afraid of folks wandering down Oneonta, which has all the appearances of being entirely undamaged at the junction. By all accounts of those who have begun scouting it, Oneonta just disappears under rocks, debris, and shrubbery once you get down into the canyon below the junction w...

Re: Bootprints on the Primrose Path (Feb. 16, 2020)

Nesika is Trails Club (private property); we go in from the Larch Mountain Trail. The flagged connector would be under their purview (not an official trail). Leased, not owned, right? Anyway... Dunno who constructed the connector, but it's been partly rebuilt. Figured when you said driving in would...

Re: Bootprints on the Primrose Path (Feb. 16, 2020)

That one was passable, other than one short devastated section, over a year ago. The entire run was restored, beautifully, though. TKO and FS crews worked on it in the summer and fall of 2019. We thought they might open it in the fall but their abundance of caution seems to have dictated that sprin...
