That was known as the Timberline Cabin and it was built at Camp Blossom in 1916. It was primarily used by skiers and climbers. According to this book the cabin was "about one-half mile west of Timberline Lodge in an area near current ski runs." That makes sense because when you hike the Timberline T...

Re: Where to find old maps?

Yes, old USGS maps are online. I like to use this tool: Old national forest maps are not easy to find, but the University of Oregon library has a bunch of them if you want to drive down to Eugene. This thread may be helpful:

Cute cats, everyone! :D

You can sometimes find an archived version (including images) through the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine. In this case that TR you linked to is not in there, but it's always worth checking. Sometimes you'll get lucky.

Re: Loading images

Some people upload images right here on the site, but many more people embed their images from wherever they are hosted (such as Flickr).

Re: Eagle Creek Trail

Re: 2019 Meet n Deet?

Re: Conifer IDs
