Re: No Name Lake Camping closure

There were storms over the Cascades this morning, so decided to do Smith Rock. Always love the photographic hike. Lots of people there with dogs and no poop pick up. Saw several piles on the trail and poop bags along the trail. It is getting to be an issue everywhere!

No Name Lake Camping closure

Another example of campers not doing what is expected. I am in Sunriver this week and was thinking of hiking Broken Top. https://www.statesmanjournal.com/story/ ... 200910001/

Here is the flight tracking for N5094L. I wonder if the owner knew where it was flown if he would be upset.

Re: Deer around Multnomah Falls

Saw the same 2 weeks ago while going up the switchbacks. A doe and 2 fawns. Was a women on the other side of the deer. Where the deer were was a wall on the right and too steep on the left. So we asked the woman to move to the wall and we got the deer walking by her and then down off the trail where...

Rainy - Whatum trail #409

I was considering an out and back hike from Rainy Lake to Whatum Lake next week. Should the 409 trail be in good condition? Also, when you reach the intersection with the Anthill trail, which is the best way to get to the lake Anthill or stay on the Rainy Whatum trail?

Re: Mini Report on Timberline

I hiked McNeil Point on July 31 From McGee Creek trailhead. Started at about 7:30am and there were no flies or mosquitos on the way up. On the way back on the TT, they were really bad. They liked landing in my arms. They were slow at flying off and I must have dispatched at least 50 of then.

Re: Looking to base camp and climb South Sister sometime in August/September. A couple questions about camps and routes.

My daughter and I went on a Monday in mid-September last year. We were staying in Sunriver so did not overnight on the trail. We got a 7am start at the trailhead and took 5 hours to get up and 3 1/2 down. Weather was pretty gnarly with sideways freezing rain and clouds up until the summit. If you ar...
