Re: Dog rescued off Eagle Creek Trail 10-6-2104

If you want to see total disregard for leash laws, cruise over to Mt Tabor someday. About 90% of dogs are off leash, despite it being a leash park. And it even offers a fenced in off leash area!! I am thinking of getting a t-shirt made up with a simple phrase on front... "leash your dog" Would be p...

Re: Conrad Basin (Goat Rocks) 26-28 September 2014

ha, ha, ha,... I think folks should stay in California, it's all wet here, moldy, dreary,... Exactly! The suicide rate here during the grey, cold and wet winters especially is among the highest in the country. Not a good place to live or raise children at all! But... we may need to come up with a n...

Cispus Pass is well below that cliff(y) band shown in the summitpost pic. That old map shows the trail dropping down about 500' from the pass, and traversing around near that elevation until it climbs back up about 500' to where it crosses the nose of the Klickton Divide. oldmap.jpg Here's a view lo...

Re: South Sister- any chance to go in October?

I live in Bend and I'm planning to hike up there this weekend. There's definitely a light dusting of snow from last week, but nothing that should be too detrimental. The forecast is currently calling for sunny, clear skies this weekend. Keeping my fingers crossed that holds true! Looking good! 80 f...

Re: Wallowa River(s) / Lakes Basin Loop: Sept. 16-20, 2014

After Polaris, Glacier Pass felt tiny. There was a use trail from the pass heading toward Eagle Cap. Anyone know if it goes all the way up? Nice trip! I don't think there are any boot tracks all the way up/down between the lake and EC. From the top end there is a faint path taking off down the hill...

Re: A good yellowjacket repellent - Does such a thing exist?

I got stung by one as I was hiking down from Cathedral Pass on the last day of a trip up around Mt Daniel last month. As I was hiking down the trail I noticed what looked like a big yellow bowtie someone had put on a branch up ahead, so I stopped to take a look at it wondering what the heck it was f...

Re: Bad Hair Day

It's the newest trend in Punk Goat couture, the Back Mohawk. That one looks a little rough though.

Re: Silver Star access - DNR Road closure on L-1100

Yes, the 4109 rd isn't impacted by the work going on at the adjacent DNR road. The Gifford Pinchot National Forest is doing a multi-year analysis of their road system. The plan will recommend changes to the road system that could include upgrading or downgrading road classifications. The 4109 road ...

Re: Bird: gray breast, black back, white tail

I think both are often called Camp Robbers kind of ubiquitously. The long billed Nutcrackers definitely show the same scrap stealing behavior just like the Gray Jays when they're in highly people populated areas. That's a good pic from DRM of the Nutcracker though because when you get away from the ...
