Defiance (again) - 12/30/19

... less snow on Defiance than there was a month ago. Shoprunner and I got a DN-approved "after brunch" start at noon-o'clock. Conditions going up Starvation were pretty sweaty, with frosty inversions mixed in for spice. There was some new snow up at the top of the gully under the Mitchell Pt trail, ...

Defiance - 12/2/19

The Starvation TH parking lot is frozen over and there's snow down to road level. This is likely to change soon as temps warm up and the rain comes back, so I went to investigate rumors of deep drifts on Defiance. It turns out ...

Mt Defiance Early Season Snow

I did the Mt Defiance Trail/Starvation Ridge Trail loop yesterday. There was very little information ... it's all sunshine and butterflies... just like a summer hike. At about 4,200 feet, the snow is quite deep and post-holey. ...

First tracks (in a month) on Defiance - 3/15/19

Third time is the charm, as they say. Ben and I got a DN-style alpine start from the Starvation TH at approx 10am, because "someone" (hint: it wasn't me) forgot their boots and we had to drive back to Portland from Cascade Locks before driving back to the TH... I ...

Re: Making tracks on Defiance - 2/18/19

... plenty of parking available. If it really is a hazardous spill that shouldn't take too long. I just called Viento State Park (they administer Starvation). Apparently on Tues 2/12 a diesel truck overturned on the westbound lane of I-84 and spilled 4400 gallons of diesel fuel. The fuel is in ...

... here" :D I thought the track was a bit too high going over Cabin Creek Ridge (just from memory), but I had no choice but to follow it. Without snowshoes, ... easier to follow, I assume. I was surprised at the traffic going up Starvation on the ridgecrest above the tower viewpoint. I had no desire ...

Re: Defiance/Starvation waterfall loop, winter edition

going "illegally" uphill east of the actual closed Starvation Cutoff Is that a leftover closure from the Eagle Creek Fire? No, a landslide took out the trail about 100 ft up from the bike path. Based on how scoured back it is, I expect it will actually ...
