I am a graphic designer and photographer based in Portland, Oregon. I'm inspired by many things, including maps, music, plants, diagrams, natural pigments and dyes, signage, traditional crafts, stamps, films, and textures caused by decay.

Fall is for the Raptors
The shadows and lighting during the eclipse were unreal. I viewed from my backyard in Portland. We had 99.44% totality, and experienced a marked drop in temperature.

Hi Leanne, Check the overview section towards the top of the page. There is a list of pros/cons, preferable seasons, etc. You'll find the distance there. Hope that helps!
Thanks for your comment Michal. Our contributor, Josh, confirmed that there are more than one approaches to the summit. We base our maps off of the adventures completed and logistical information provided by our contributors, so this map shows the route he took, but you can certainly try other approaches. :)
Hi Amanda, If you download our field guide, the map indicates potentially impassible locations with a red dot. Hope that helps.
Hello Bernadette, thanks for the note. Good catch! I have updated the phone number above that you can use to contact the City of Lakewood for reservations. Hope that helps!

Hi Colin, most of the adventures included in this post have a map included in the field guide. If you're logged in as a member you should be able to download them. Hope that helps!
A surprising number of people were snowshoeing / hiking / skiing the loop given the holiday. The lake was frozen and we hesitantly made our way out onto the ice. Watched the sun go down over the lake before making our way back to the car in the dark.
