Re: Along the Salt River

Hell of a rattlesnake photo too. These are all really great wildlife shots though. Nice scenery too, of course. The southwest is a really interesting area. My wife and I hit up Grand Canyon and then Utah national parks a few years ago, but I'd really like to check out more of Arizona. Thanks for pos...

Re: 1933 pamphlet for a Salem Chemekatans outing to Mt. Hood

This is pretty remarkable stuff. Thanks for posting. For some reason it's really blowing my mind that there was a fire lookout on the summit of Hood. Wanting to learn a little more about this led me to this cool page , with great photos and some historical press accounts of the lookout being opened,...

Re: Mount Margaret 9/12/2019

Those older photos are great. Few things catch my interest like old Mt St Helens photos. Anything pre-eruption is fascinating but so too are pictures that make the immediate aftermath. Seeing life return to the north side of the mountain is really cool. Nice report too! My wife and I most of the way...

Re: Mt. Hood Elk Cove Huckleberry Hunt 9-7-2019

Related to the glacier health, I came across this interesting paper a while ago. Figure 2 (on pg 4 of the PDF) specifically highlights the Coe glacier. It's a little dated now, being from 2006, but still a cool read.

Re: Circumnavigate South Sister - August 23, 2019

Cool report. Thanks for posting. I like the videos you've made as well. They're a nice supplement to the written hike description. I found the terrain between South and Middle Sister to be really fascinating from the SS summit, so this was an especially neat report to see. The trail-less portion did...

Re: Backpacking the Lofoten Islands of Norway

Wow. That is some amazing scenery. Thank you for calling my attention to this place. Norway has been on my list for a while, but only in a general sense without specific places in mind. I now have a specific place to see. The peaks and some of the surroundings reminded me a bit of the Scottish highl...

Re: Blowdown on Elk Cove Trail

Cool trip report. Thanks for this. At least the views seem worth the effort to get there. It also looks like there is still a lot of snow on the mountain for July, which is nice to see (although probably not so nice for higher elevation hikes).
