Re: Primrose Trail?

We saw the red shorts today as we were our way down from poking around the higher reaches and they were on their way up to do more excellent work with an intriguing assortment of tall tools. All hail.

Poison oak enchroaching between Catherine Creek and Coyote Wall (Atwood/Labyrinth)

It may be that I have yet to be in the area this late in the season, but there was quite a bit of enthusiastic poison oak encroaching both the Atwood and Labyrinth trails today. Enough that no matter how narrow I made myself, I still got a few brushes from a leaf or twig. (also saw a gopher snake sl...

Re: covid vaccines currently available

You may have tried this already, but I've known people to have good luck getting on the waitlist at their neighborhood pharmacy. Once you get called in for the first dose, they'll schedule the second at your convenience. Likewise, if you have the time/ability to volunteer, many large vaccination sit...

Re: Information on Edible Plants?

Not exactly what you asked for, but you might also find Pacific Northwest Medicinal Plants by Scott Kloos of interest. I didn't love it because I'm not inclined towards medicinals or wild harvesting, but I learned a lot about how a person might use any number of local plants.

On Monday, 12/22/20, the Twin Lakes were not even fully slushed, let alone iced.

Slide emerging on Larch Mountain Trail 441?

A quarter to half a mile upstream from the bridge after the junction with Wahkeena/420. - the cliffy/edgy section - multiple cracks running 1-6 inches from the edge. Sorry no pics, didn't want to stand around on a crumbling cliff, you know? Sent forest service an email.

Re: Wahkeena switchbacks slide

The bits of the slide over the trail were relatively well trodden as of midday today (12/22). None of the walls appear to be damaged. They're still shifting, though - second the advice re: rocks!

Re: Looking for salmon runs

I've seen them in the Wilson River - between Jones Creek and the Forestry Center, I think. And ye olde far off times, Eagle Creek. When I was a kid, in Multnomah Creek between the freeway and the falls - no idea what it is like now. I would imagine you can see them in the Salmon at Wildwood, there a...

Re: Angel's - Devil's Rest loop from Wahkeena?

It is open. I hiked it a couple of weeks ago.

Foxglove is fine.

The AR <-->Wahkeena trail could use some work, but is passable. The people who went through when it first opened did a lot of the work to beat back the 6+ months of thicket growth. One spot with blowdown, but easily navigable.
