Re: Warner Mountains - NE California - 9/13-15

I'm intrigued by the area as well. My interest was piqued by a trip report on Oregon Hikers from August of last year. That Report is here - http://www.oregonhikers.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&p=171417 . Made it close in July when I was in Southern Oregon but alas, didn't have enough time. Another go...

Re: Northwest Real-Time Images

Grew up in Portland, but have lived in Chicago and Amsterdam the past 20 years. I miss home a lot and as a consequence have scoured the internet for webcams - a little link to home. Here's a link to the "live" crater lake cam -

Re: The Island of Hawaii

Beautiful pictures, wish I were there now! Hate to be a stick in the mud though, but the bird identified as a Nene is actually a Kalij Pheasant - here: http://identify.whatbird.com/obj/1121/overview/Kalij_Pheasant.aspx . The Nene is a goose. See: http://www.statesymbolsusa.org/Hawaii/bird_nene.html

Re: Table Mountain- Wenatchee National forest Feb. 18-19, 2011

The mountain in question is Mt Stuart. The smaller peak immediately to the right is Sherpa Peak and the big one to the right of that is Argonaut Mt. You're actually seeing two sets of peaks seperated by Ingalls Creek. The background range that includes Mt Stuart is the home the Enchantment Lakes. In...

Re: OPB - Civilian Conservation Corps program Nov. 3, 9p.m.

Thanks for turning me on to this series and previously to the Oregon Field Guide. I'd forgotten what a treasure OBP is - you don't realize those things until you're gone. I watched both the CCC program and "The River They Saw" and would have watched two or three other complete series if it had been ...

Re: The Palouse

Nice! I love the Palouse - my youngest daughter graduated from WSU in 2007 which gave me two opportunities to visit each year - once in the fall for Dad's weekend and once each Spring for Mom's weekend. Steptoe and Kamiak Butte both have expansive views, but I'd have to say I prefer Kamiak Butte as ...

Re: pct- jefferson to hood...

I've got to agree with scrambler2. Once you leave Jefferson Park going north it's one boring trail. Ditto the section from Hood to Cascade Locks. Are you averse to traveling south from Santiam or Mckenzie Pass? Much more interesting routes IMO.

Re: A Potentially Startling Admission

A lot of diverse opinions on this one - enough so that I feel compelled to add my own. I personally love Eagle Creek. I'm a bit older and remember it when it wasn't nearly so overrun. I have a lot of fond memories of Boy Scout campouts there back in the late 60's as well as some early hiking adventu...
