  1. Buckhorn Lake

    Google Earth allows you to look through historic satellite imagery too. In Sept 2009 the lake was pretty low but all other imagery from summer into fall had it fairly full. I'm not familiar with the Buckhorn area but I'd imagine it slowly drains throughout the summer and in years with low precip such as this it winds up close to empty. Interestingly in 2009 there was a relatively decent amount of rain in Seattle, maybe the Buckhorn area was heavily rainshadowed that year? Here is a link to NWS Seattle's recent Twitter post about Seattle rainfall that I referenced.
  2. There was a lot of initial excitement about the Cascade Pass photos being a grizzly but it was quietly withdrawn as a grizzly sighting due to some additional clear photos of the same bear from a different person. Also NPS Resource Management folks typically work a more traditional M-Th/Fri schedule and aren't out and about on the weekends. Bowan Lake is visited quite frequently by the NPS aquatics program.

    Aw man. I never knew him besides his postings on here but just saw a news article and my heart fell. Condolences to all that knew him and his brother. He seemed like a class act.

    Thanks Matt. I have really appreciated your well written TRs. Especially when I'm sitting on my ass in the office counting down the minutes until I can leave.

    Load one will very likely heading past the 4 way prior to any ice cream consumption is occurring at Sheri's. I live in Winthrop and have been commuting over Loup Loup to Omak and have also been passing loaded log rigs coming over the pass at 6:15 or so from cutting that is occurring on DNR land on the east side of the Loup.

    What length poles and where are you located?
  7. Popular spot. Looks like some folks on NWHikers were up there after you lunger. Thanks for the TRs everyone. It's a Sefrit trifecta on 3 different forums. http://www.nwhikers.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=8035086
  8. for sale Rab Ascendor sz L $140

    I just refound these in the back of a drawer. Still unused with tags. Anyone interested for 120 bucks. They'd be a great climbing pant or for skiing with low volume boots but wrestling my Maestrale RS2s into them is a tad tight.
  9. I've got a set of Rab Ascendors in size large that are "Ebony" color. These are new with tags but I missed the return window. They'd make a great climbing pant for someone but didn't quite fit right for me. Here is a link to the pants from Rab. The colored pictured is what I have. https://rab.equipment/us/ascendor-pants

    Looks like "fun" May the snow return so I don't have to do some of these trips myself!
  11. Shit! They found my duffel bag of Sugar in the Raw!! (Who likes that stuff really?) I bet you are right and the rapid test they used had an issue.
  12. Kick ass trip report! This was awesome while I was drinking my coffee. Just as an FYI to anyone who may be interested Kelly Cordes has released his book The Tower as a free audiobook. It's kinda a pain to download the individual episodes but well worth the listen. https://kellycordes.com/book/audio-book-sort-of/

    Congrats nonbasketless on the dumbest post of COVID-19. May no one surpass it.

    I'm sure you are keeping an eye on it, but the weather forecast is looking pretty abysmal for this weekend with 8-15 inches of snow forecasted at 9K feet Saturday night to Sunday as well as winds into the 40s.
  15. Beacon

    Like a moth to flame I'm drawn to the Beacon thread every time you post Ivan. Thanks for the verbose TRs and I'm glad the fickle finger of fate(gravity) didn't get you the other day.
