    Just label them Burnt, Burning, Will Burn because of the equally stupid, dialectically opposite big interests who deny climate change and the others who block all responsible land management and stewardship in the name of environmentalism.

    To be slightly more helpful to your cause. Check what you have labeled Bilke Cr (I think that is what I read) to Trout Cr and Whit Horse

    Also, why delineate the Strawberries and Ochocos from the rest of The Blue if not other significant sub ranges like The Elk Horns?

    See Figure 1, but open to interpretations. I would have just written Cascades if left to my own devices, but then came across this subset of naming.

    Thanks, will do! Having some names to look into is helpful.

    Good point, will revise accordingly.

    The question mark in the upper NE is still the The Blues. Here is a helpful source https://oregonencyclopedia.org/artic.../#.X1nA9yUieEc

    Also, here is the list of all the ranges:

    I see a map with an eastern edge of about -121* longitude. There’s another 4* to go before the border with Idaho. Can’t mark up what I can’t see.

    See Figure 1, but open to interpretations. I would have just written Cascades if left to my own devices, but then came across this subset of naming.

    Willamette Pass will move forward with the intent of FULL OPERATIONS as snow will allow this coming winter season.
    Operations will be modified in order to meet state and local guidelines.† Please have patience,†this is an evolving situation for everyone.

    So that's good.

    Yes. Sounds like the mom & pops might be a good option if the big B gets slammed. Here comes the next smoke out for us. Fuk

    Storm Hood, thanks for the OR encyclopedia link, that is very helpful. And good call on the Trout Creek mountains, you were right! I had looked into the Wiki link, but figured rather than guess on which (sub) ranges are most important I'd summon the powers of TGR's clan of friendly Oregonians to help guide me. My OR mountain experiences are limited to summer park laps at Hood and skiing a couple laps on the Cooper Spur in 2013 (an exquisite line; five-star fun!), so I am the first to admit my lack of knowledge. Again, thanks for your input.

    Here's a revised map, comments always welcome. Is the ??? area near Crater Lake considered the Southern Cascades? How's the subrange naming of the Blues now? Cottonwoods worth adding?

    TBS, maybe you can see the whole image now? And no, not a school assignment. Sorry. I'm merely trying to ensure my physiographic nomenclature is correct so I don't make egregious errors in describing locations (where you would go, "WTF? What a dumbass!", but you can do that anyways, it's fine). Following your earlier comment, I removed the western Cascades/High Cascades naming.

    I would make the Wallowas/Eagle Cap on the same size as the rest of the subranges for more clarity, but then again that is a bit of a political position others would have the ďAlps of OregonĒ as there own standalone.

    I like that you added the Aldrich and Mauries, if you are looking at the map for the hrdrological importance they make up significant divides for where the water goes while leaving The Blues.

    Also, might as well get the Seven Devils on the Idaho side of the Snake and Hellís Canyon on there.

    Crater Lake is still the Cascades, but take all my suggestions with a grain of salt I am just a Oregonian with a general Social Science Degree and not a real geographer.

    Also, there is a good thread about The Blues in the Books forum here on TGR.

    Lastly, sorry for any spicy-ness in attitude. Shit is a lot heated around here, so thanks for the distraction even if you are getting us to help you with your homework 😉

    Nope, same map that chops off eastern 2/3 of the state. I’m on an iPad Air

    Are you opening up the image or just viewing it from the post. It's all there on an android device.

    I’m was viewing - using Chrome. Tried swiping - nada.
    Not sure why this is important anyway. Pick up a Rand McNally Atlas for Oregon - all basic land/water features are listed.
    Don’t need to spend time on this in a thread about being optimistic. Best reasons for optimism
    1. It was 30*F Tues @ 0700
    2. Forecast is for rain here early next week.
    3. La NiŮa is coming. I love that little tart.

    ETA for Multicolon - smoke is getting worse at La Ponderita. Can’t see The Sisters from my house. Can smell smoke inside the house with AC going and all windows closed tight. Supposed to get way worse tomorrow and the weekend as winds shift to westerly in advance of the rain front.

    I would suggest using Google Earth Pro with the NOAA SWE equivalent .kml overlay or QGIS(free) which would add some detail to the map. The map could benefit from a hillshade or imagery overlay as well

    Jefferson is getting absolutely hammered. I know fires are a natural part of the ecosystem, but God Damn.
