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.

Silver Star is an extinct volcano above the city of Vancouver, WA.
It was part of the Yacolt Burn in 1902, the largest forest fire in Washington history.
Because of the fire, the sub alpine zone begins much lower than in the rest of the Cascades.
From the top (4300 ft), you can see Portland, Mt. Hood, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Adams, the Goat Rocks, and Mt. Rainier.
Just not today.

Bodhi, my son and I hiked up Silver Star today under cloudy skies.
It's been clear and hot here lately.
I didn't believe the weatherman about the clouds today when it was clear outside last night.
But the clouds made it easier for Bodhi.
Lots of loose fist sized rocks made the way down less than fun.
But the ripe huckleberries on the way up were great!

Treeline is a funny thing. I only hope I get a good Cascade hike or two. Really no excuse since there IS family out in Forest Grove...
