Name of Grass Mountain?

I'm curious as to why it is named that, too. I looked in McArthur's Oregon Geographic Names and Grass Mountain isn't in it (at least it isn't in my 7th edition).

Hopefully someone out there knows the answer.

Re: Name of Grass Mountain?

Thanks for doing that, I'm always curious about the origin of a mountain's (or peak's) name. Thank you also for voting on the page, I appreciate that.

No apology needed...

...for a "lackluster" mountain. I guess I don't need to tell you that it's the quality of the work that really matters. Your pages are always very well-done.

Re: No apology needed...

Thank you, those are kind words. Slowly but surely the Oregon prominence peaks that require a hike or a climb will get represented. Not many left in that category but this one was fun to do with my 8 year old grandson. I could just barely keep up with him though (I need to have that kind of energy). ; )

Maybe he can play with my 2 1/2-year-old son. I need a break, but I guess he's helping keep me in shape.

Mileage adjustments

Thank you for creating this page, Dean. It really helped me. I have a few observations about the drive in:

The road off the highway is marked as "Follet Road".


0.5 mi: take the right fork (vs 1 mile)
5.9 mi: take the right fork (vs 3.8)
9.0 mi: stay left at a fork in a large clearcut
9.7 mi: turn left at triangular junction (your "T" junction)
10.7 mi: junction with older road.

These mileages match well with Edward Earl's on, except the fork at 9.0 miles might be a new one.

Re: Mileage adjustments

Thanks Paul for your update on the mileage. I've added your information to the front page plus a link to Edward's TR. Please post any pics you might have taken, it is nice to see updated ones and was there a register present? Thanks again.

Re: Mileage adjustments

Hi Dean. Yes, your register was still there. I enjoyed reading your entry and those that followed. I will post a photo or two of the route. Thanks again for enriching the summitpost site with so many peak descriptions.
