Re: Yamsay Mountain & Hager Mountain 6-22-22

* The Fremont National Recreation Trail, 135 miles long, has its eastern terminus at the top of Yamsay Mountain. The crew said they wanted to establish the terminus at the trailhead where I parked, and they promised that they would soon be signing (and hopefully brushing out) the road and getting i...

Re: Bonanaza Trail

Thanks for the report. I did this as a hike and bike a few years ago starting at wildwood and riding back from bonanza trailhead. That creek section is really nice and views when you get up to the plaza are great! I still get a creepy feeling when I walk by the mine. I'm 100% certain a cave bear is ...

This off-trail segment should increase the hike patterns in this area, especially shortening some lollipop loops starting at various trailheads.
Please post if you end up climbing that ridge. Curious how it is.

Re: Access to Bull of the Woods Wilderness?

All of 46 is closed past ripplebrook store now. It was briefly opened but closed due to the BOTW fire last year. *Edit* The FAQ on the forest service says it's all closed but I read the text of the new closure order: "Ripplebrook Area Roads: o FSR 46 is closed from Hwy 224 to approximately 1 mile s...

Re: McKenzie River Trail and Santiam Wagon Road Trail

Wow! Sahalie Falls was certainly raging! I usually avoid popular areas but might have to give this a go with so much else still closed. Thanks for the report

Re: Across the Alpine Lakes: Icicle Creek to Snoqualmie Pass

That was really entertaining. Thanks :)

Glad you weren't seriously hurt from your fall. Always kind of sketchy in those heavily burned areas.

Re: Central Cascades permit changes

I didn't even know wilderness forest rangers existed. I've literally never seen a forest service employee while hiking nearly weekly for the last 20 years.

Re: Rowena Crest - Tom McCall Pt

Nice shots. Did both trails on Tuesday and it was great!

Had a pair of chinooks pop up right over us on the Rowena crest side

Long toed salamander

20220323_091657.jpg
Found this salamander out walking around rock creek reservoir. It was very small. Maybe 3 inches and slender. I've never seen one like this before so thought I'd share. Sounds like they're pretty widely distributed just camouflaged well.

Ambystoma macrodactylum
