Columbia County Highpoint Trip Report

Date: June 21, 2006
Author: Adam Helman

This effort was part of a larger journey collecting Idaho, Montana, and Washington county highpoints in late June and early July 2006.

I must have been the first hiker in the season to bag Oregon Butte. Upon return to my vehicle I found a note asking me to contact the Umatilla National Forest district office to report on the trail conditions.

The following day I visited the Pomeroy office and described the snow conditions and locations of deadfall that should be cleared for summer hiking traffic.
