Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

On Sunday, Bodhi, Dave and I were headed east to the Dalles to hike.
The weather man don't know which the wind blows at all.
Every day in the last two weeks he's called for clearing, it's rained.
When we reached Cascade Locks, it was still socked in, so we decided to hike up Eagle Creek.

This is a place every Oregonian has hiked a million times.

It was dark. The fog was down.

Very few others were hiking.
Some had dogs, all on leashes.
This was good, because in some places the trail becomes a narrow ledge over a long drop.

Then the fog began to lift off the deck. Mist trailed off treetops.
Pale light filtered through the yellow leaves.




We walked along the ledges far above the creek to High Bridge, the overhanging walls dripping.
We were grateful we did not meet another dog here.


Then when we returned to the trailhead, we walked over to the pool under the spillway of the old dam.
A huge red pod of salmon were roiling the water in their spawning frenzy.


It was a magical day.

Oooooooh! I'm not an Oregonian and even I have hiked this trail. I remember the steep drop off on this trail, and I agree with you that keeping the dogs leashed is probably a good idea.
