Fish Lake and the Santiam Wagon Road
In our search for a hike with smoke-free breathable air, we thought we'd give it a try on the west side of the mountains. The results were marginal at best, but we still had a nice hike. We started at Fish Lake, which has long since completed its annual vanishing act. When I was last here in May, it involved a two-hour kayak trip on a beautiful lake teeming with waterfowl.

A circumnavigation of Black Butte - on foot
We were trying to decide where to hike last week and finally settled on climbing Black Crater. No sooner had we made that decision than the trail was closed due to the Milli Fire. So, we decided that it was time to hike into Four-in-One Cone, which - for some reason or another - we keep postponing and still have never climbed. Within a couple of hours, however, the Scott Trail - and pretty much everything else over there - had been closed, too.

The observatory was completed in 1935 as a Depression-era project of the Civilian Conservation Corps. It was named for the project's construction foreman, who died before it was completed.

A visit to Roaring Spring
When a friend recently asked me what I knew about Roaring Spring near Camp Sherman, my answer was, "Nothing" - so we decided to do something to remedy that. It took a fair amount of Googling and map research to locate even the general area. As it turned out, that information was only good enough to get us close. But that was fine; we are always up for a little exploration.
