Re: Salmon Butte 791 - Trailhead advisory

That's my glass! At least some of it. My mushroom foraging spot is up on the butte so giving up parking there is a concession I am very unwilling to make. In the past I have left the glove box open, doors unlocked and put signs in the window saying, "UNLOCKED & EMPTY". This time I was coming back fr...

Re: The Dogs of Oregon Hikers

This is Willie. He came home from the Oregon Humane society on Wednesday. They think he is a Springer-Pointer mix. I can confirm that he is a very good boy. I am going to pick up some kind of puppy carrying harness or backpack so he can come with me mushroom hunting. I tried popping him in a basket,...

Vigilante brush justice

Howdy, Longtime lurker. I backpacked to Upper Twin lake in the Bull of the Woods wilderness with my girlfriend last weekend from Pansy Creek trailhead via Mother Lode. I got pretty good at flinging sticks off the trail with my poles. What I was unable to fling so easily away were the huckleberry hea...

Welcome, certainly an interesting title for a post! Hey regarding Big Bend, I spent two weeks near it a while back and only explored a little of it. Some of the locals told me there's places in the park or in that area that you do not want to be caught in due to the drug runners. If you head to SE ...

From Quercus fusiformis to Pseudotsuga menziesii

Hola, I recently moved out to Portland for work and have been lurking on y'alls site for a few months. After spending 26 years in Austin, I had hiked just about everything taller than a coffee can within an 8 hour radius of town. After spending most of my vacation time flying out West, I decided it ...
