Silver Star Mtn. - Washington

I was really excited to do this hike, as it is one of the closest peaks to Portland, and is unique that for the vast majority of the hike you are on exposed ridgelines with amazing views all the way to the top. The hike starts at 3000' and climbs steadily along an old fire road to the peak at 4400'. There we ate our lunch and enjoyed a 360-degree view that included the Columbia River Gorge, Portland and its eastern suburbs, Mt St Helens, Mt Rainier, Mt Adams, the peaks of the Goat Rocks Wilderness, Mt Hood, Mt Jefferson, Saddle Mountain in the Coast Range, and over 100 miles away, the northernmost peak of the Three Sisters volcanoes. In the early summer there is supposed to be an amazing wildflower display, so we are definitely coming back. Unfortunately, I left my batteries in the car, so no mega-photos, just cameraphone pics. It was unfreakin'believable up there, and warm!

Sioux Arrow - Point Juncture Wa


Super8 greatness from a local filmmaker. Shot locally around Portland, Oregon. Live clips from The Artistery's 7th Anniversary party on October 3, 2008. I was there in the front row, but it was pretty dark in there so you can't see me rockin' out.
