    That's why I found it curious. Was only three or four spots and I noticed they all coincided with little arrow signs that were basically invisible without your eye being drawn to the ribbon. Ribbon...

    I noticed on the Ammo Trail SAT that there were several places higher up in the glade areas that had blue ribbons tied to the trees in key turn areas where people frequently go the wrong way. Not...

    I wound up going up Ammo SAT from the official lot. There was one car ahead of me and the tracks of a bare booter in the fluffy, unconsolidated snow. Snowshoeing in the woods was amazing SAT. Light...

    I have to say based on the groups of people I've encountered so far this Fall season I'm kinda shocked this is the first rescue. But I guess I think that every year......

    His comment was indeed related to snow travel, not climbing. This discussion just made me think of it. If I remember right it was from that bad accident on Mt Hood several years back. And I don't...

    The one time I parked there (I think either 2014 or 2015) I got there on a frigid NOV SAT AM around 6. I had read it was $1 to park but garage/store was still closed and I didn't see any obvious...

    Does anyone still take the actual Ammo Trail out of the official parking lot or do they either park at Base Station or walk the road? It's only like 0.6 miles or something and maybe 200' of elevation...

    I thought the fee box was attached to the side of the Cog building? Is it possible no one sees it so they have a temporary post in a cinder block or something and they put down in the lot during...

    I know every year there is an auction for old AMC trail signs, which usually go at pretty hefty price tags. Does anyone know if there is someone out there who makes replica signs like these for a...

    Wow. She is a pretty prominent climber too. I've seen her in several North Face spots. Sounds like she was extremely lucky with the crowd that was around.

    Thanks for the info and link! I've done some basic reading and goofed around with the "scene" modes on the camera but they didn't really do what I expected. Will be my Winter "project" learning how...
