Re: Conifer IDs

The arboretum next to the zoo has signs identifying different trees. Great, I need all the signs I can find. And my hat is off to those of you who can ID from bark. Anyhow, here's one sign. IMG_3424.JPG Which I now realize on preview can't be read, so here's an enlargement: IMG_3424v2.JPG And the t...

Re: How bad is Road 4610?

I did that hike (Salmon Mtn Lookout Site), yeesh, 10 years ago!?? I don't remember the road being particularly potholed and rutted. I was driving an Accura Integra, which is a very low slung vehicle. What I do remember was the roadside vegetation encroaching upon the road, giving the impression that...

Re: Eagle Cap: Cached at Cached Lake

roninor! Thanks for weighing in on the history of Pop Lake, trail #1935. We seldom, if ever, walk where no one has gone before. Just think of all the lost, untold stories that could be told by those who've gone before us. And a huge thanks to you and the Scorpamanders for keeping these trails open, ...

Re: Paradise Park: Lost Creek Lollipop Loop

Thanks for sharing a different perspective of a classic--I've always meandered up from split rock.

I especially like your first photo of the spring--an amazing miracle a spring is.

Thanks,

Burnside

Re: Bear Poop?

I vote raccoon. Too small for bear. Coyote usually has some amount of hair and is more consolidated and dog-like. Look around base of nearby trees for piles of feces. Raccoons make latrines in areas they frequent a lot. Unfortunately my yard and garden is highly attractive to raccoons and I have way...

Re: Eagle Cap Triptych: Tombstone, Diamond, and Off Trail Adventures

I'd rather not have to carry bear spray You are an Eagle Cap man! Congratulations and how Oregonian! The Wallowas are a dream for relatively forgiving off-trail wandering. I agree and I've noticed that there is a road ending at the wilderness boundary at 7,000' to the West of the Tombstone Lake Tra...

Re: 8/31-9/2 Breitenbush Lake to 3 Fingered Jack

Thanks for sharing Buckwheat. I very much enjoyed your photo album, including all the campsites!! I've been curious about the TFJ area and you've literally given insight. FWIW, your photos did not display in your Oregon Hikers report, and I'm glad they didn't 'cause that led me to follow the link to...

Re: Newton Clark Ridge/Moraine, 8/31/19

The old Texas Chairlift ran from below and south west of the current ski patrol building at MHM, uphill of the Mazot restaurant facility, and north of "Marmot Ridge". The upper end of the lift was north of and slightly below the top of the current Cascade Express Lift. If you follow the cat track th...
