Re: grand opening: Shellrock portion of HCRH

I consider this to be a ridiculous frivolous squandering of resources We will agree to disagree on this point. I think it will be popular and over the years prove to be a good investment. The Mitchell Pt segment is all that remains. I was out there today doing the Shellrock Ridge Lindsey Ridge loop...

Re: Nee-Me-Poo & Imnaha Trails, Hells Canyon 4-23 to 4-24-19

Wonderful trip report, my wife was just asking about Imnaha for some reason so I sent the link to your report which she enjoyed reading. You really need to bind your reports up and join the ranks of trail guide authors. BTW, I just need to know, is any of this material going to be on the next test? ...

Re: Cougar Rock Trail

I would have thought Cougar Rock is in forbidden territory. You sure about this? Attached is a track from a 2017 hike I did up Elevator Shaft then east on the rim. I followed the Cougar Rock trail for a couple hundred feet and it is quite visible in the track. I backtracked then went on to Nesika an...

Re: Hamilton Mt., Monday, Feb. 25th

Hey Don, nice report and I really like that first photo. I'm freezing up just watching those videos. Even the most mundane hike in the Gorge becomes fun given challenging conditions.

Nice report, thx. I always like your posts, nice locations, photos, narrative, a bit of history, interesting geological facts - like an article out of National Geographic.

Re: Nick Eaton loop

Nifty outing and nice report - you covered a lot of ground. The descending ridge you took looks interesting as does the ridge to the north of it. Likely in better shape and easier to follow than Casey Creek Trail. This could almost go in the off-trail forum. Borderline. Maybe, until you took off on ...

Shellrock Mtn Summit (Gorge) - Jan 25, 2019

Now that more of the Gorge has opened I've been going out to visit old haunts to view current conditions. A couple of weeks ago I explored Lindsey Ridge (the ridge to the west of Lindsey Creek) and it has its own set of problems from blowdown in unburned areas but once in the burn zone to the south ...

Re: Cook Hill on a winter day

Thx Don for the report & photos. Cook Hill has been on my list forever - maybe your report is enough to get me out there and do it. I guess parking is not an issue at the trailhead. I'd be looking at the loop with Cook, Aug and Dog - like when the snow is deeper and amenable to snowshoes.

FYI: Google Earth now has Gorge fire imagery

FYI: I'm not seeing it in Google Maps but Google Earth has updated imagery to include the Gorge fire. Interesting looks.

Re: Palmer Mill Rd/Primrose Path - Dec 7, 2018

I think I know the road you mean. I followed it once a few years ago. It climbed to the top rim of the gravel pit before fading into the bushes. At that point, two flags on the left indicated something of interest in the woods to the southeast, but I couldn’t figure out what and didn’t see any flag...
