Visiting North America's deepest canyon
When we returned from our trip to Hells Canyon National Recreation Area, I realized that not many people seem to know that North America's deepest canyon is right here in Oregon. Several people asked me where I had been last week; and, when I said "Hells Canyon," the most common response was, "Where's that?"

Flatiron Rock: an easy hike in the Badlands
Although we're seeing trails opening up in the high country, it's still worth taking note of alternative areas that are (nearly) all-season hiking destinations. After all, not every day lends itself to a high mountain expedition.

Whychus Creek Trail impacted by Milli Fire
I had been lulled into thinking that our friendly almost-in-town hike along Whychus Creek was one last little bastion of safe green space among our thousands of acres of scorched forest in Sisters Country. Alas, I learned last week that that's not entirely the case.

Learning life lessons on two wheels
When Tom Lyons was a child he couldn't have cared less about his bicycle. If you know him today, you would find that hard to believe. Then, it was no more than a mode of transportation and a way to hang with his friends. But today it has become an extension of himself - one he uses to encourage and inspire local kids to be and do more.

Running commentary
A lot of my writing over the years has been centered on track meets held at historic Hayward Field on the University of Oregon campus in Eugene - from Outlaws winning state titles to Ashton Eaton setting the decathlon world record.

No other place has seen more sub-four-minute miles than Hayward Field.

Now with just one meet remaining at the venue before a complete overhaul of the facility, people are wondering if the magic will remain.

Pollard shines at State track meet
Stepping to the starting line for the 1,500 meters on Saturday afternoon at Hayward Field in Eugene, Jordan Pollard knew he owned the fastest time of the season among 4A runners at 4:01, but that there was another runner on the track who would do everything possible to beat Pollard. That runner, John Kavulich of Scappoose, won the 4A cross-country title over Pollard in November by blasting from the start, daring everyone to chase him. Pollard could not make up the gap and finished second.
