Photos needed for Field Guide

Post by bobcat » November 14th, 2020, 11:55 am

Here's a list of the Field Guide pages that don't have any pictures (this is an annual request):

If you have a photo of any of these places and can let us use it, please post it here along with your preferred attribution. Many thanks!

I don't have any photos, but it's worth noting that the "Fall Creek Trailhead" is officially called the "Green Lakes/Soda Creek Trailhead."

This was taken last December but it looks the same now since the recent fire didn't burn this area. I was there after Hwy 22 reopened and checked.

A couple of the Battle Creek Shelter area:

First Elk Lake crossing (starting from from the north trailhead):

Pine Cone Creek crossing - not the best view, but you can see where the trail crosses the creek:

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention to arrive safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: WOW-What a ride!

This is the Elk Lake Creek trail at the south end of the Battle Creek Shelter area. The site of the shelter is left of the trail in front of the rhodies. There is nothing left of the shelter except an outline on the ground.

Tombstone Pass Area

Post by BurnsideBob » November 15th, 2020, 7:48 am

18 July 2018 photos.

The Tombstone Pass Snowpark has a pit toilet and is long and narrow, accommodating up to 50 cars. The trailhead is SE of the toilet on the east side of the parking area. What we did was walk the highway a few hundred yards East to the Cone Peak Trail, which is marked by this sign:

Trail Marker at Highway
It appeared people were parking along the highway where the trail crosses, although the road was signed "No Parking". Up the trail, as you approach the ridge connecting Iron Mountain and Cone Peak, is a clearing with these views:

I do have a photo of the Tombstone Pass Snowpark, but my truck and travel trailer dominate the image, so don't think it will be helpful.
