Re: St Helens: McBride Lake vicinity

This is all very interesting! We tried to look for the springs a few years back, but were told by a ranger that they got covered over by one of the mud flows, and it was just marsh now. Now we have to follow Don's lead and forge onwards!

That trail looks way too good to just be a casual "user trail". Do you think it was an old miner's trail?

Re: Maxwell Butte Steeplechase

Great report! I don't get down that way very often, but Maxwell Butte has been brought up several times.

Yes, he may have been 80, but how many Sherpas did it take to carry all of his oxygen bottles? :lol:

Re: Cirque of the Towers Loop

There is so much area to explore in the Wind River Range, you just need some lungs! Just to the north is a popular loop through a basin, with Skull Lake and a couple of others. From there, there is an official trail that goes over Haley Pass at 11,160 feet, then drops to about 9,800 then climbs Wash...

Re: Cirque of the Towers Loop

Chapter III There are 2 routes around Arrowhead Lake. The route to the left climbs quite a bit, to get over the cliffs that come down to the water. The route to the right, that doesn't climb much, passes over the boulder field, visible in the picture. How bad could a boulder field be? Surely with as...

Re: Cirque of the Towers Loop

Chapter II It's not until you are standing at the base of the slope, looking up, that your brain sort of comprehends what is ahead. At this point, we were at about 10,800 feet, looking at a 700 ft climb in about 1/3 mile. 083-Starting up Texas Pass-S.jpg This gives a perspective of the grade 088-Boo...

Cirque of the Towers Loop

Subtitle: An test of advancing age VS altitude The Cirque of the Towers is not a name that is a well known destination, here on Oregon Hikers. The simple reason is that it is in Wyoming, about a day & half drive from Portland. To any serious rock climber, it is a well known mecca of clean granite cl...

Sean,

Thanks for the route ideas. Didn't know that you did that sort of route..... thought that Don & I were the only ones off-kilter enough to do that sort of thing!

You have upped the bar several notches, now I have to give it a go!
