Re: Best non-technical 6,000'+ peaks for winter?

Yes, that's the road. So enticing at that point... From when you first posted this and I saw that picture I've felt a challenge! :D Do you think the width of your vehicle contributed to most of the pucker or did the road really get terrible shape? Or it's the loose rock on a perpendicular incline t...

Re: Best non-technical 6,000'+ peaks for winter?

Hi. Originally from Michigan myself. Welcome to Oregon, it is truly endless what one can do here. not requiring ropes, not avalanche terrain, not climbing straight up, limited chance of running into ice sheets large enough I have to turn around. That's.. a list for sure. I haven't climbed them all b...

Re: Nisqually Corridor Management Plan - thoughts and ideas

You know what would really cheese me off? Driving three hours to the trailhead only to be told the lot was full. I'd rather drive three hours and be told the lot was full than get to the trailhead and park by the road a mile from the trailhead and hike in a conga line. Far better to show up and kno...

On the first trip I think we had 2 extra days waiting for the float plane-it was windy but otherwise...
