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.

This was a perfect hike for weather yesterday.
It was sunny all day, but the hike was completely in the shade of a forest until the end.
The trail was nine miles total and 2840 ft. of elevation gained.
Salmon Butte is south of Mt. Hood, about 7 miles from Zigzag on the Salmon River.
The start of the hike s on a decommissioned road for a mile or so.
Then it veers off into forest on a flat, wide, well-graded tail of pine duff.
The last quarter mile of the trail wound around Salmon Butte, the site of an old forest service fire lookout.
We could see Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams, Mt. St. Helens to the north and Mt. Jefferson to the south.

That's a great picture of you guys in front of Mt. Hood! I really do love the Pacific NW Smile

"Being the parent of a special-needs pet means living your life constantly poised on the edge of a double-edged sword. On the one hand, you become a fierce defender of the ways in which your little one is perfectly ordinary — all the things he or she can do that are just like what everybody else does. And yet, you never lose sight of how absolutely extraordinary that very ordinariness is, how difficult, remarkable and rewarding that fight to be 'just like everybody else' has been."  -Gwen Cooper, "Homer's Odyssey"

I like mountains. I like those mountains. Those trees trip me out every time you post. That shot of Jefferson has been stuck in my head all morning. Time to hit SummitPost and find out more.

The more you post Oregon photos the more likely I am to move to Oregon. Careful now...
