Re: Old Bridge near 4 mile bridge on Eagle Creek

Hey, Zach - great detective work! The bridge has been in the current spot since I first hiked Eagle Creek in the mid-1970s, I'm fairly certain. So a likely explanation is that the original bridge washed out in the colossal 1964 Christmas Flood. This was he flood that reshaped a number of rivers in t...

Re: Nick Eaton Ridge 6/19 to 6/22 2008

It seems to vary a lot - Pablo ran into snow at about 2,200 feet in the upper Eagle Creek canyon (Salmon-Huckleberry) on our waterfall trip weekend before last. From what I saw on the Snotel monitors there was tremendous variation among similar stations (e.g., similar elevation, similar position eas...

Uber-wide photos are blowing out the page template!

Hey, Jeff - have you noticed that larger photos blowing out the pages so that a good portion runs outside the browser window? It seems like Community Server has some sort of filter for images that pushed them inside a maximum pixel width... is that possible with the new host? Otherwise, it might be ...

Re: Still Creek Trail NO.780

Hey, Cidermaster - that was the site of our Trailkeepers training a couple of weeks ago! Some modest drainage repairs between Camp Creek and the first road. I'm planning to head back and take some photos of Camp Creek soon. It was looking very nice when we were there.

Re: Central Salmon River - 06.22.2008

Hey Casey - there are several boot paths that descend down to the viewpoint above Final Falls, and any will do. The most obvious simply drops from an overlook in a pair of paths that converge as the slope steepens. Rope are not necessary, but the treacherous part of the Final Falls viewpoint is that...

Re: Central Salmon River - 06.22.2008

Great report, Aaron! (I keep wanting to call you "Rob"... for obvious reasons... :D ) Sorry I didn't get to meet you at the last Trailkeepers project - next time, maybe! For some prehistoric photos of the Salmon River Canyon, here are some somewhat dusty pages that I put together many years ago: Sal...

Re: Chak Chak Falls & Tipsu Falls along the "other" Eagle Creek

Hey, Bryan - here's the lowdown on the measurement: Jamie dropped a rope over the main drop (the one visible in the video) and it came in at just over 100 feet as measured by my road tape. The upper drop is estimated at 38 feet based on Andy's GPS read - and it's a reasonable estimate for now, if yo...

Jamey, have you seen the Canyoneering Northwest images of their rappel over Cabin Creek Falls? Here's the link.

Re: Cabin Creek Attempt

Jamey, I think you saved me a trip up there! I noticed the beauty of the creek at the trail crossing, too, and had wondered what was upstream. But I might try going downstream, since there were some pretty sections that you could see below the trail - no more than a couple hundred yards below the cr...
