Gray Butte/vicinity

9.75 miles of hiking • 2000' elevation gain • 1 night

Went after work on Friday and camped at trailhead, to get earlier start before rain arrives. Very warm night, full of stars. One trail runner ran downhill by my camp at midnight, then back uphill at 1am - now that's a dedication! I went to see some trails/ridges on southwest side of Gray Butte, then hiked over the summit on NW side, and returned on the road on E side to make a loop.

William O'Douglas Wilderness

24 miles of hiking • 2750' elevation gain • 2 nights

Real wilderness, feels so wild and remote! Only PCT corridor was somewhat crowded. Lots of lakes and tarns, elk trails all over the place. I wanted to check out Tumac Mountain as well (for view of Rainier) but got carried away exploring the lakes.

Hunchback trail

4 miles of hiking • 1500' elevation gain •

Great steep hike when we're short on time. I'd like to say the ridge was same as always, but it was not. The forest is stressed by drought, rhodies are also drying out. We need some real rain..

P.S. Just realized we were there just 4 days before a woman, who was attacked and killed by a cougar, was reported missing.

Indian Heaven

10 miles of hiking • 1250' elevation gain • 1 night

Checked some of the little lakes/ponds I found earlier in spring in snow - wanted to see how they look in the summer. Swam in 4. Ate so much berries I got stomach ache. Met 2 rangers (while on trail) and got my permit checked. Saw a dozen of elk (was slow with my camera), then another lone elk on the way back. Sitting by one lake & drying up I observed a mouse diving under water for extended periods of time (not kidding), only swimming up to take a breath; it took several dives until it was done foraging and run ashore by my feet.

Placid Lake

2 miles of hiking • 0' elevation gain •

Not really a hike, just a nice vacation day on a lake. Mosquitoes were minimal, berries - plentiful, finally the time to hit trails in Indian Heaven. But I need more practice swimming, it's been a long time..

Vancouver orchards "hike"

1.5 miles of hiking • 0' elevation gain •

Got a nice "hike" picking blueberries and peaches most of the day (to fill freezer for winter). One of the reasons I like living here is we're not limited to fruits from the mall, that taste like plastic. Now if we only get some decent rain so wild mushrooms can start..

Oregon coast

10 miles of hiking • 0' elevation gain • 2 nights

Nice rest from the heat at the beach. Gorgeous gray skies, cold water, foggy 65 degrees, even some drizzle at night :) Low tides in the morning were the lowest I ever seen. Camped nearby in the Coast Range. It was nice to stay half day on Monday, before driving to work.

Boulder Lake

2.5 miles of hiking • 250' elevation gain • 1 night

Probably the laziest overnight trip (it was warm in low 80's, but so much better than near 100F at work); I got there on Wednesday just before dark, and spent Thursday swimming in the lake, going around it and checking out Little Boulder, and just reading in camp. Awesome day.

Triangle Moraine (Mt Hood)

6.5 miles of hiking • 3500' elevation gain • 1 night

Went to about 8,700, not sure if I found the actual Triangle Moraine but was somewhere close. Great breeze, great views, lots of butterflies (video @ the link). Unfortunately my camera died before I got to best stuff. Hiking on glacier was pretty cool, as well as view north to all the cliffs, and the falls at the head of Clark Creek..

Veda Lake

Short hike after work. Slow, rocky road there, was surprised to see a Corolla at trailhead - it can certainly be done.

Ed's Trail (Silver Start Mtn)

4 miles of hiking • 1000' elevation gain •

Great family hike, real gem but getting up "road" to North trailhead is hard on the car. We need to get that Discover Pass and park at Grouse Vista next time.

Elkhorns

30 miles of hiking • 5250' elevation gain • 3 nights

6 lakes+1 peak +7 passes = great formula for epic weekend (first night was car camping before the hike, but technically, a night under stars, so I think it counts)

Ochocos Loop

30 miles of hiking • 5000' elevation gain • 3 nights

3-day 2-night loop (plus night near car before hike), from Lookout Mtn over Round Mtn, down to Walton Lake and Ochoco campground, then up Duncan Butte & over Lookout back to the trailhead. About 1/3 of the loop was with no trail - I went on ATV trails and logging roads, with short cuts through forest. Real ponderosa country, loved most of the loop.

Tried new loop with ridge off Bald Butte's west side - much better views than going via powerline road. Want to repeat when balsamroot bloom starts. GPS track is in the link

Coast hikes

8 miles of hiking • 0' elevation gain •

Chapman and Arcadia Beach, and Hug Point. Only Chapman had some recent storm impact (dunes partially eroded). Arcadia and Hug Point had access trail washed out, but still easy to get to the beach. No logs on the beach to speak of, nice - after watching some recent storm coverage I expected everything to be buried with logs. Some of the lowest tide I ever seen.

Catherine Creek

5 miles of hiking • 1250' elevation gain •

Grass widows already out and about (not many, but nice to see 1st signs of spring). Wanted to cross Catherine Creek around 1200' via abandoned road & going offtrail, but after catching 3 ticks on me decided against bushwhacking. Mostly stayed out of rain, even though it poured around Table/Hamilton/Dog on the way out & back.
