Re: St Helens: Crescent Ridge and beyond, Junuary edition

I've enjoyed reading all your MSH reports but enjoyed this one the most. Great photos! The late season snow cover looks so cool, especially in the shots showing the obvious snow line looking north (toward Rainier). This looks like a really fun off-trail day on the mountain.

Re: Wygant Peak 5-12-19

I wonder if we met - I did a TKO work party on Wygant in April last year. It was a fun experience and also my first time on the trail.

Thanks for the pictures and trip report. This is a really excellent - but seemingly overlooked - trail with great gorge views.

Re: Three, three hikes in one report

Beautiful pictures from a nice trio of hikes. Thanks for posting - this was a fun read. It is interesting to see photos from burned areas. I haven't noticed a charcoal smell myself when in the gorge post-fire. It's amazing that is still noticeable, especially after a pretty wet winter.

Re: Coming Soon

If you're going to be closer to Portland than Bend, Mount Saint Helens is another good option. The permit system is annoying but at least keeps the crowds down. It's less elevation gain than South Sister but still a real summit that feels like an accomplishment. Plus, the crater is a unique feature ...

Re: New Zealand: Tongoriro Northern Crossing (Dec 2018)

Very cool! This is a great report. It looks like you had pretty great weather too, which is no small deal around Tongoriro. If you do get the time, reading reports from the other great walks would be fun (but if not, that's understandable. You can also just post pictures :) )

Re: Am I an insensitive jerk, or is the USFS wound a bit tight?

Did anyone else notice the CHPDWN edited into the bottom of the warning? That was a nice touch.

But yeah, that warning but have been under the circumstances. Not sure it makes you insensitive, per se...

Re: Eagle Creek Fire video

Thanks for sharing. Semi-related, but man YouTube comments are the worst. I know this isn't a new observation but it never ceases to surprise me.

Re: 2019 Calendars?

There was a call for photo submissions so it seems like a calendar is in the works. I've been keeping my eyes out for ordering information too. Hopefully they're out and available soon (and thanks to those who go through the effort of putting the calendars together).

Re: "Leave No Trace"--filmed in and around Portland

I just watched Leave no Trace on a long flight and enjoyed the movie. I'll second the recommendation if you like slower movies, although the pace worked well set the mood and tone of the story. Still need to check out the other one - I hadn't heard of it outside of this thread.

Re: Long Distance Trail in Chile

Thanks for the great reply, Steve20050! I hadn't checked the board for a few days so hadn't seen this reply until now, but I really appreciate it. You've got a fascinating story and lots of helpful insight.
