Leidl Ridge (Klickitat Wildlife Area) 5-7-20

... into a big horseshoe bend on the Klckitat, with the Glenwood Highway curling around its base. Out on these grassy breaks, there are death-camas meadows and a few specimens of Hooker’s balsamroot, now past their prime bloom. There were great views of Adams and Hood. Heading north, I passed through ...

Re: Elk Meadows, Gnarl Ridge, and vicinity: July 5, 2019

I was one day behind you at Elk Mountain and Bluegrass Ridge. Yeah, that cutoff trail down to Elk Meadow is tricky. I went up, so as the trail became harder to follow I just had to keep ascending, knowing I'd reach ridgecrest eventually. ...

Canemah Bluff Nature Park -- April 26, 2020

... mentions of this nature park on the forum. The history signs outside the park are kind of fun, too. The trails near the bluff are open-ish meadows with some oak and madrone trees and the blooming camas lilies. There is a nice view of the Willamette. The interior of the park is more forested, ...
