I recently posted 18 year old photos of North Bend from Si and Issaquah and the surrounding area from Tiger. I would be interested to see old photos others may have laying around. How about Monte Cristo when it was a trailhead parking lot with more buildings? The old Pilchuck lookout would be fun to compare to the new. Go back into your archives and lets see what we can come up with. Mine are at:

That was then...

Here's a picture from a mystery road I've been trying to identify for a long time.  If I can dig up some more photos I'll post them too.  I believe it was in the Middle Fork or Snoq. Pass area.  What a tree!

I just posted a story with photos of a trip to the Paradise Ice Caves and Camp Muir in 1981. I believe the caves are gone now. For those who never saw them check out the photos.

100 Hikes in Western Washington, 1966, has a great picture of the ice caves.  It's hike 41.  I must have been there not too long after 1981.  I know the following year they had collapsed.

I know some of you have hiked the old road above Dirty Harry's Balcony, on the way to Webb Mountain etc... Here is a picture of the truck sitting on the side of the mountain. The difference is this photo was taken in 1986. Many of you have not seen the truck back in it's glory days.

Thanks for the updated picture. 16 years of snow and sun seems to have taken it's toll. I'de love to see him drive it away...

Check Karen Sykes' book "Hidden Hikes in Western Washington". A gem of a book for the roads less travelled by.

Post Tue Jun 25, 2002 3:02 pm    Old Robe Trail At High Water
 Reply to topic Reply with quote

I don't seem to be able to get you folks to dig into your old photos. Oh well, let me try one more.

Back in Novermber of 1990 it snowed heavily then rained hard. The result was our usual fall flooding. I monitored the South Fork Stilly closely. It usually ran about 800 cf/s. At the peak of this flood it was at over 26,000 cf/s. The gauge height is still monitored but the stream flow is not. I went down to the Old Robe Trail, located at the top of the hill before dropping down to Verlot. The river was running so high that at the first tunnel the water was only about 1 foot below the grade. In the summer it is about 20 feet down to the water. This photo was taken just before the entrance to the first tunnel. The noise was equal to standing on the runway at Sea-Tac.

One reason you may not be getting a huge response is that there are many hikers who don't have scanners or digital cameras or are in the learning stages which is a challenge for some of us old farts. As for me, I have slides going back all the way to 1979 but don't have the ability to scan them in. Wish I could figure out how to do it without spending a fortune. Don't stop downloading these great photos, though -- I certainly enjoy looking at them and I'm not alone. Frankly, I feel some disappointment when I log in and see that there aren't more responses to this topic because it is one of the more interesting subjects on the board.

Yes, more photos please!  I've been enjoying them, as well as the couple posted on the Otter Falls thread in Trip Repots... I'd post some, but I only started hiking 3 years ago.  smile.gif

I have to agree.  agree.gif  Please keep posting your old photos.

Also some of us are not old enough to have old photos. wink.gif

Today I went to Dungeness spit with an older group of hikers.  (Who else hikes on a Wednesday)  And they were talking about the ice caves up by Paradise on Mt. Ranier.  I actually new what they were talking about thanks to you.  They were up there about 30 to 35 years ago. cool.gif

Thanks, I think... I'm actually not quite that old. 35 years ago I was getting out of the 2nd grade. It's fun to post and look at the old pictures. I will see what else I might be able to post.
