Re: Elk Cove from Vista Ridge (Aug 25)

Beautiful photos! I've been meaning to get up there for two years already.

Do you think the pasqueflower seed heads will still have a good show in two weeks (by Aug 15th or so)? Specifically, in terms of photography viability.

Re: Shorthorn Trail to Shorthorn Butte (Point 6227), Plus 2 Rockfall Avalanches! - Mt Adams, WA

I was lucky enough to be nearby when it came down. Wish I could have seen it, but of course it might have been the last thing I ever saw. I have to ask, did you actually hear it come down? And if so, how loud was it? Did it last a long while? GPS Track. (Forgot to add in the main post). Shorthorn B...

Re: Shorthorn Trail to Shorthorn Butte (Point 6227), Plus 2 Rockfall Avalanches! - Mt Adams, WA

Nice report. Think that creek is a diurnal event, or random? I nearly gasped with excitement when I saw that loooong coulior leading to Pikers Peak, but then realized I've done that. Didn't recognize it in summer. Regarding rockfall, are you aware of the immense slide in that area in Aug 1997? Much...

Shorthorn Trail to Shorthorn Butte (Point 6227), Plus 2 Rockslide Events! - Mt Adams, WA

Mid August, we hiked the Shorthorn Trail, beginning at the Crofton Ridge Trailhead (better road conditions), and hiked up to an unnamed peak on the southwest slope of Mt Adams. The last bit is off-trail, but the views are great from the Round the Mountain junction alone, if that is all you can do. T...

Re: Elk Cove trail

Thanks for the report!

Were there any patches of wildflowers left at Elk Cove? And the hippie heads/dr. Seuss looking flower seed pods? (Western Pasqueflower)

Re: Mt Adams North

Has anyone been back up there recently? Considering a backpack there later this week but I'll head someplace else if the skeeters are thick. I was up at Horseshoe Meadow (via the PCT), and explored an area off-trail above the Bumper about 3 weeks ago. No snow above the PCT. Minimal mosquitos, altho...

Snowslide Lake and Snowslide Summit, Idaho (July 5)

Over the 4th of July weekend, we had the opportunity to do a hike in the McCall area in Idaho. The Lick Creek Road area looked like the most rugged area in the region, and this hike had a lake and a pass, so we decided on the Snowslide Lake-Snowslide Summit hike. Opening Photo (as an attachment, bec...

Re: Horseshoe Meadows, Mt Adams

Great to see this place is pretty much snow free; I've been meaning to go back at some point.

Any rough idea as to when the wildflowers at Horseshoe Meadow will peak?
