Hiked on the Oregon side of the Gorge for the first time since last year's Eagle Creek fire.  Went about 7 or 8 miles up Herman Creek. Immediately east of PCT.  Interesting seeing the different degrees to which various areas burned.  Transition from the worst scorched area of all to completely untouched by the fire was almost instantaneous and rather dramatic.  I found out later several trails on the west end of the Gorge were just reopened today--Larch Mountain, Wahkeena, Angel's Rest.  Middle portion still closed with no target date for reopening yet.



I would post pictures, but screw flickr!  down.gif

Moolock 24 nov 2018.

This hike is often praised for the views, but as usual for me in Middle Fork area I didn't get to see any (previously I snowshoed West Green, South Bessemer etc. - and every time there was barely any visibility). The snow level is pretty high, a few inches of snow at around 3000 ft, but there was no need for snowshoes until around 4000 ft. No human footprints, but lots of deer and bunnies. I have never seen so many bunny prints, looked like they had a huge gathering the night before.

The road part is boring and tedious, but it does get better - higher up portion of the road seems to be not used anymore and is now so overgrown, I actually lost where the road is in places. Trees are getting bigger too. Not sure if it means more logging soon or they will finally let this mountain return to a more natural state. Snow is very unconsolidated and going was slow. The last scramble part is very steep. Previous trip reports seem to indicate going up boulder field, but there is not enough snow on the field yet and falling through into boulders is not fun. I went through the trees instead and had to crawl/veggie belay with Cookie in some places.

15 miles, 4560 feet gain.

Was going to do a quick hike up to Bridal Veil Falls but got curious about the new logging area a short way up the trail and went up there instead. ok views toward Gunn, North Index, Town Wall from the new roads. They did a reasonable job covering the start of the road with debris so no one was going up this road.

On a visit to Seattle for the holidays I did a couple of local hikes with my daughter now that she is old enough (4) and willing to put in some miles and elevation.

Tried to climb Hinman this weekend but we didn't like the snow conditions, turned around at Opal Lake. There's a good trench up the Necklace Valley trail now. We were able to drive to within 1/2 mile of the TH with 4WD.

I returned to Green Gulch in The Chief Joseph Wildlife Area south of Asotin again today. I forgot my lunch so it was a shorter hike than expected. Still quite a bit of snow in the upper canyon area but it should be melting soon as temps were in the 60's when I got back to the car.

I hiked Mt. Rose (ONP) yesterday.  I stopped at Potlatch State Park along the way because it looked pretty with dawn colors.  Snow started at around the 2000 ft mark.  Microspikes were fine for me (early am) but the snow was getting very soft on my way down.  It felt good to push hard for the first time in months, and to not have to carry a bunch of crap with me.  Photography slowed me down a tad.  94' up 55' down.
