Roads Closed and Bridges Washed Out on Mt Hood Backroads

In an earlier post, I described some troubles we had on a recent trip around Mt Hood. Had I done a little preliminary research, I would have found out that some of the roads are obstructed, bridges are washed out, and passages are blocked by downed trees.

However, like so many people who know the backroads of the mountain pretty well, we were flying by the seat of our pants. We figured that if we used common sense, and turned back if and when necessary, it wouldn't matter much if we had to change courses. Sure it took a little more time (and gas), but it was a beautiful trip.

But for those of you who use the other kind of common sense, here's a report about what to look for around the Mt. Hood National Forest.
