Re: Kidney Lake

... how it must feel to lose a nickel to a penny-pincher like me. :) Good to see I made the right decision this weekend regarding a hike int he Gorge. I suspected wind and lingering snow after waking up to snow at home on Friday morning. Never a good sign for Gorge walks when you have snow on ...

Kidney Lake

... short drive down Blue Lake Road. Strange. Snow: Oops! I guess I got a little overconfident with this Junuary we've been having. Didn't realize the gorge picked up a few inches. The steepest section of road was a bit unnerving when my muffler was scraping. The hike wasn't too bad, but every time ...

... and bike path? (My expectation is that the bike path will now overwhelm Gorge parking at all OR THs every summer.) Too bad about the Wyeth trail disappearing, does anyone even know how/where the damage is, and whether they have plans ...

Table Mtn in danger of imminent collapse! 11/3/19

... began, when I ran into Doug and Karl and we watched the smoke choke the Gorge and flames shoot up on Munra. So maybe this is old news, but there is one spot where the cliff edge is almost right to the edge of the trail, closer to the meadow side when you first reach the cliff. That spot ...

Cook Hill & Augspurger on a windy fall day

... takes the cake and now is the time to see it. Most of this route is a trail atop an ancient logging road so the grade is seldom very steep and never muddy. One of the best in the gorge, IMO. http://www.fototime.com/CB5FB5925E5E0FA/medium800.jpg http://www.fototime.com/8B7F7F17B7C4551/medium800.jpg ...

Re: Mini Report on Timberline

Putting a bridge over the wilderness crossings on the Timberline Trail has been an issue for several reasons: 1) It's a wilderness area and ... Look for limits coming to you in Jeff/Wash/3S wildernesses in 2020 and CR Gorge in about 5 years. 3) Lawsuits blaming the USFS for not taking out a bridge ...
