PG Key

PG Key is a unique device that plugs into any USB port on a PC and gives parents the tools they need to manage kids using the Internet. When PG Key is removed, the computer operation is suspended - this allows parents to control when their child can use the PC. You can also load time on PG Key like a cell phone and limit how many minutes a day the computer is used. When PG Key is in, 10 technologies are engaged, including site blocking and filtered searching. They let a parent create a safe Internet environment for the child. PG Key automatically records up to 60 hours of computer activity that can be reviewed just like watching a movie - sites visited, chats, e-mails, eveything.

Red willowherb
[Chamerion latifolium]
Member of the Onagraceae family (the lovely primroses).

August 16th, 2008. Hiking along the Pacific Crest Trail, above 6,600 feet, just south of Elk Pass I encountered this sturdy but lovely, alpine flower.

Trudging along the steep narrow and rocky trail I almost didn't stop to snap this photo. I had never seen one before and so decided the effort was worth it.

I couldn't find this in any of my Northwest flower books, save one. It isn't even listed in my Audubon flower field guide for North America. Finally found it in the excellent flower guide by Turner and Gustafson titled: Wildflowers of the Pacific Northwest. It is one of the books Bruce Perrault recommended I buy. Good choice.

In this book the red willowherb is listed as "uncommon". Sure picked a tough location on this high, barren, rocky, wind swept trail side. At the top of the hill heading north to south down to Elk Pass I saw a hummingbird zip by so this flower does have its admirers.

According to the USDA plant web-site the flower grows in the western U.S.; most of Canada and Alaska; and Greenland as well. Also know in some places at a "dwarf fireweed" but that name doesn't seem to fit by me, so I will stick to the more poetic and precise "red willowherb".

Friday August 15th, 2008 I packed my packpack and drove to the Scatter Creek trailhead up the North Fork of the Tieton River (the road is about 8 miles on the east side of White Pass in Washington State).

I began my backpack at 2:15 pm, late in the day for me, but I wanted to take advantage of the small window of good weather to visit the Goat Rocks Wilderness.

Four and quarter miles up trail 1118 I intersected the Pacfic Crest Trail (still called trail 2000 by many). The junction of 1118 and the PCT is called Tieton Pass.

From Tieton Pass I headed south on the PCT to the half mile long dead end trail that leads down into McCall Basin.

I visited a nice couple with three beautiful pack horses and a dog, who were camped in the basin, then set up my new Northface tadpole 23 backpacking tent for one. It turned out to be a great little tent.

I camped within sight and ear shot of the North Fork of the Tieton River about 1/4 mile downstreams from a waterfalls.

That evening I took my Canon G9 and hiked a mile up to the upper McCall Basin (which is lovely). I hiked the length of the meadow and then to the top of the waterfalls that enters the basin. Great scenery. Flowers, deer, and snow fields everywhere.

Saturday August 16th, I left camp with a light day pack at 7:15 am. A fellow solo backpacker (from Gig Harbor) camped near me at McCall Basin joined me on the day hike.

We hiked through aromatic fields of lupine to Elk Pass, roughly 3.5 miles from our campsites in McCall Basin.

We spotted a big billy goat near Elk Pass and kept our cameras going constantly with the far off vistas and the wildflowers, marmots, meadows, snow fields, boulder fields, and everything else that caught our attention along the trail.

At Elk Pass we met a couple from St. Louis who were doing the "whole thing" - - that is the Pacfic Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada. At times they put in 30 mile days. They were in great shape and obviously knew what they were doing.

From Elk Pass we hike over a mile toward Old Snowy Mt. where we could look down on the last saddle before the Old Snowy Mt. traverse of the PCT (two routes possible).

A herd of mountain goat were below us. Most were hard to photograph since they were on the snow and a long way off. A nannie and kid grazing in a lupine covered meadow offered us the opportunity to get a good "goat" photo in the "goat rocks".

The waypoint for the end of our day hike is (approximately): N46 31 25 W121 27 14 at just under 7,000 feet.
This position was exactly one mile by the lower PCT crossing of Old Snowy Mt. from the position I day hiked up to on the last day of July in 2008 (from Chambers Lake) and I could easily see where I had stood just a couple of weeks ago across the way.

We returned to McCall Basin camp to find it hot and the mosquitoes intolerable (for me). I broke camp, shouldered my backpack and by 3:45 pm was making my way back to my truck at the Scatter Creek trailhead.

I reached the truck at a little before 7:00 pm, happy for the wonderful country I had visited once again, and very happy to be out of the mosquitoes.

I had hike 9 miles with a day pack and another 6 miles with my backpack, which was plenty for me for the day. I couldn't imagine the St. Louis couple who were putting 25-30 miles a day in, with full packs.
