Re: First-time snowshoeing on Multnomah Basin Road

FYI for next time: decommissioned roads don't matter if there's a couple of feet of snow on top of them. :D I considered that, but it looked potentially more dangerous with snow hiding all the random logs and branches the crews dragged across the road. I suppose we could have just made a beeline to...

Re: First-time snowshoeing on Multnomah Basin Road

Did you end up going west on the Angel's Rest trail? I ask cause Wahkeena Spring is west of where the the trail comes up from below, and the trail in that area was very well tracked and pretty slushy - I didn't see anything that deep when I came up from the Wakheena trail - unless people just aren'...

First-time snowshoeing on Multnomah Basin Road

I've never snowshoed before, but after an attempt at a low-elevation hike on the Herman Creek Trail last weekend led me into two-foot deep postholing, I figured this was a good time to give it a try. I bought an entry-level pair a few days ago and went with a friend up the Wahkeena and Devil's Rest ...

Re: Rescued hiker on Mt. Defiance

when I'm by myself I'm more careful. With other person(s) we will more likely to attempt something riskier. That cancels out the benefit of one person going out to get help or assist. (rationalization of someone that goes by themselves?) I've experienced that, too, so I don't think it's just a rati...

Re: epic all-day Devils Rest hike

I only recently became aware of Mist Falls and did the short jaunt to the base. I can't imagine how you got to the top! Very cool!

Re: Making tracks on Larch - 2/23/19

Impressive! I just got my first pair of snowshoes and after a brief trial today, was planning to go up to that area tomorrow. Nice to see there will be no shortage of snow.

Deadly Colorado Mountain Lion Attack

Deadly for the lion, that is. This is all over the news today, but this article had some details of how the trail runner handled the attack: https://www.denverpost.com/2019/02/05/how-runner-killed-mountain-lion-attack-larimer-county/ I recall reading somewhere that most mountain lions will run from ...
