Re: 2020 in review

460.3 miles, 92 hiking days, 14 nights backpacking. Beat 2019 by 41 miles, 5 hike days and 1 backpacking night. 19 trips were different versions starting from Wahkeena. I'm a bit of a creature of habit.

COVID furlough days over the summer, were a boon to me. I got in extra weekday hiking time.

Re: Jim in Silverton

Hi Jim, welcome to the site. I see no responses yet. This is a smaller group than larger platforms like Meetup. I'm a weekender, hiking with the hordes myself. I'll bet Meetup will have a good weekday group.

Re: Wahkeena parking

Yep, I saw the same thing. Haven't been back lately but Wahkeena is my usual haunt so I'm glad things should be easier.

Re: Wahkeena parking

Thanks for posting this. Lately I've been getting there while still dark out, to get one of the few parking spots. Maybe it won't be so difficult now.

Re: Deschutes River day hike

Michael - thank you.

DRM - no, wish I had seen then swimming on their backs. That would have been pretty neat.

Overall it sounds like otters I think. First I've seen.

Re: Deschutes River day hike

I did not. Totally willing to believe they were otters instead. They were very dark, against a muddy dark bank.

Deschutes River day hike

Went to Deschutes State Park yesterday for a casual hike along the river. Had thought to go to Crawford Oaks again, but fog was thick and visibility was maybe a couple hundred feet when I got there. Fog was thick along the Deschutes as well, but higher up. You could see half the hills anyway. Or is ...
