Re: First-time snowshoeing on Multnomah Basin Road

... a track heading towards Devil's Rest but the snow was deeper around it. It was actually raining at the Devil's trail (vs snowing higher up by Larch) so it's surprising the tracks filled in so fully that low. FYI for next time: decommissioned roads don't matter if there's a couple of feet of ...

Re: Making tracks on Larch - 2/23/19

'snow bombs' / cannon fire is a pretty accurate description. Those limbs get loaded up to capacity, and then when snow above them melts off, or gets blown off it just cascades down to dropping a massive chunk of ice/snow/slush.. Yep, a gust triggers a bit to fall up high, and it just "dominoes" all...

Re: Making tracks on Larch - 2/23/19

Incredible effort, Nat! And a fascinating route, too. Been eyeballing some of those ridges, but that was before this bigass dump up there. Well done! was not keen to walk through a snow slump on the part of the trail overlooking the drop to Weisendanger (in retrospect, whatever snow would be there i...

Re: Making tracks on Larch - 2/23/19

Impressive! I just got my first pair of snowshoes and after a brief trial today, was planning to go up to that area tomorrow. Nice to see there will be no shortage of snow.

Making tracks on Larch - 2/23/19

The forecast called for a few inches of daytime snow, and Defiance is still closed due to the diesel spill... where to get a powder fix? Obviously Larch, which is fantastic when the whole viewing platform gets filled in. I couldn't recall how much snow was at road level in the Multnomah area, and ...
