Re: Petroglyph Lake, Hart Mtn 10/22/20

Petroglyph Lake is a place I've long hankered to visit. Thanks for posting your great trip report. 14 October 2023 marks the date of an annular eclipse of the sun. Petroglyph Lake will be close to the centerline of the Path of Totality. While the eclipse path centerline will traverse western Oregon,...

Re: Will the Nesmith point trail ever reopen?

I know a couple casual horse packers (not outfitters). Yep, they carry chainsaws in their kit. Can't cut the big stuff, but they can get the little. If 'Ya drive a long ways with your horses and rig you've got a lot more invested in your trip than a hiker so you aren't going to let downfall stop you...

Re: how would you interpret this mountain-forecast.com table?

Maybe I missed something? Chip Down was asking about weather at the summit of Mt. Adams in post 1. Here's the closest "pinpoint" forecast from NOAA: https://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lon=-121.49772590666744&lat=46.20805112855868#.X5jqSYhKiM8 This forecast is for conditions for a one mile squ...

Re: Lamberson Butte new addition

IMG_1277.JPG Looks great doesn't it! I did not yield to temptation even though I really had to pee :lol: . Wonder how this stuff works when it is buried under 10 feet of winter snow. BurnsideBob here in curmudgeon mode. Looking at sculpted trees in photo, snow won't accumulate. Ever touch the termi...

Re: Jefferson Park and Opal Creek burned?

Also looks like the entire area of the 2017 Whitewater Fire has reburned.

FWIW, in OneSpeed's Inciweb image, that's Woodpecker Ridge where the fire stopped. That also is approximately the edge of the Whitewater Burn.

Thanks OneSpeed for posting the Inciweb image.
