TRIP REPORT: Fresh Tracks at 3000 Feet

Snow is finally falling on the mountain, and it looks like it might stick around and keep accumulating.

There were a good 6-8 inches at 3000 feet in the Oregon Cascades on Saturday, and more snow continues to fall.  Temperatures are forecast to remain below freezing at least through New Year's, which is good news for the first Next Adventure Outdoor School Winter Trip of the year, scheduled for January 1st, 2015.

Snow Covers Portland! February 2014

Snow fell in Portland, and just about everybody got a snow day or two out of the arctic blast.
It doesn't happen all that often in the Willamette Valley, but every 5-7 years, enough of the white stuff sticks around to turn the city into a winter wonderland. This time, it stuck around all weekend.

ALONG THE PACIFIC CREST TRAIL -- September Section Hikes in Oregon and Washington --

Pacific Crest Trail Washington Mt Adams thru hiker
We had a genuine Northwest September this year.  The first fall rains came the first week, bringing out mushrooms like we haven't seen in years.  Then a return to warm and summery weather to remind us how friendly our climate can be.  There were some showery days with sun-breaks mixed in there, and now the snow has returned to the mountains, blanketing them white.  

Get the New Year off on the right foot!
