When I first saw this on the What's New page I thought, "surely Don didn't create a page for that radio-towered Larch Mountain SW of Silver Star."

There are quite a few Larch Mountains in the U.S.

Thanks for the vote, Paul. No, you will never see me stoop so low as to submit something like the "other" Larch Mountain you speak of. Way too many mountains named Larch - what is it about those early peak namers?



Get your butt down here and let's go on a some gorge hikes/runs/whatever. There's darn little snow so it's like summer in January, but colder!

NIce Page! Good history info, and an excellent winter shot of Multnomah Falls.

Thanks for the vote and the compliment. Yeah, it would be nice to have some real winter weather again - the falls are fantastic when we get an arctic blast and a hike up Multnomah creek is awe inspiring.(if sometimes very difficult!)

"Summer in January but colder."--What an apt description! Good job, Don. (So...how DID the mountain come to be named "Larch?")

Thanks for the compliment and vote, Vernon. If you ever get down this way, this is one of the places you'll have to check out.



As for the name: I've read in a couple of places that the Noble Fir was mistaken for Larch and thus the misnomer. It seems unlikely, though as the two trees aren't alike at all. Larch grows on the eastern slopes of the Cascades so should have been well known to the early residents but there are none at all on the wetter, western side yet there are at least three peaks named "larch" over here. Who knows.

Thanks for the vote and compliment. Yeah, I was freezing my ass off up there waiting for a bit more darkness, trying to balance my camera on the summit rocks. I'll have to go back on a clearer, darker night and try it again!

Good page Don. I do wonder about the summit pinnacle. You don't happen to have a shot of it? 800ft sounds like a lot for a pinnacle. Is it anywhere remotely like this or this? Both are "eroded central plugs" of volcanos too.



And hey, in two weeks time I'll be gone for La Palma to look at the volcanos over there. The tickets just arrived in my mail. Definitely like summer in Febuary - only warmer ;-)
