RE: Is it Oh Boy! Camp or Oh! Boy Camp?  

By Kirk, 6 days ago

  I guess Gifford Lake could also have been named after Gifford Pinchot. Benjamin A. Gifford, his son Ralph, Wanda (Ralph's wife) and Ben (Wanda and Ralph's son) were all known for their scenic photogra...

  OGN doesn't have a listing for Gifford Lake.

  What about Gifford Lake? Maybe it was one of these guys: Gifford, Ralph I., 1894-1947 or his father, Gifford, Benjamin A. 1859-1936.
RE: Two articles: Bull of the Woods LO and horse travel  

By Rob Williams, 1 week ago

  Thanks for posting those - very interesting - also interesting to see the area around the BOTW trailhead soon after it was cut. That was 44 years ago though..... I didn't realize they actually used B...
Two articles: Bull of the Woods LO and horse travel  

By Doug Firman, 1 week ago

  Here are a couple of interesting articles from 1980. In the photo of the horse van, it appears that they are at the old BOTW trailhead rather than the one in use today. Attachment : BOW LO and ho...

  Kirk, you're right. There's also Finley Wildlife Refuge named after him.
RE: Is it Oh Boy! Camp or Oh! Boy Camp?  

By Kirk, 2 weeks ago

  The name Averill in the article about the avocet made me curious. The Oregon Hikers page about Averill Lake says this: "According to McArthur & McArthur's Oregon Geographic Names, the lake is na...
RE: Is it Oh Boy! Camp or Oh! Boy Camp?

  I suppose the old adage of "don't believe everything you read in the newspaper" applies here. What has me scratching my head though is that the writer states that he was actually at Oh Boy camp. If ...
RE: Is it Oh Boy! Camp or Oh! Boy Camp?  

By Rob Williams, 2 weeks ago

  I think if you look at those photos, they look like the same structure to me. That makes me believe they got confused somehow. It seem awfully weird - I cannot see how building any kind of lookout i...
RE: Is it Oh Boy! Camp or Oh! Boy Camp?  

By Doug Firman, 2 weeks ago

  I agree, it seems unlikely that there would be a fire lookout at Oh Boy. But how can we say for sure that there wasn't? Maybe it was a temporary-use kind of situation, manned only at times of high f...
RE: Is it Oh Boy! Camp or Oh! Boy Camp?  

By Rob Williams, 2 weeks ago

  That is really interesting - but it seems like something is confused - there was no lookout at Oh Boy camp - the camp was along the Collawash (which the article states). But then the pictures show a ...
Is it Oh Boy! Camp or Oh! Boy Camp?  

By Doug Firman, 2 weeks ago

  A newspaper article from 1940 describes the naming of Oh Boy! camp on the Collawash River, except that it refers to it as "Oh! Boy." I thought this might be a typo except that the article included a ...
RE: Fish Creek Airstrip  

By Rob Williams, 2 weeks ago

  You guys are good! I don't know how I missed it, but I did see the La Dee Flats one on at least one older map. The reference to the strip at Peavine was not part of the segments you scanned - it was...

  Some of the older maps have this circle symbol. I did a little research and am pretty sure this indicates an unpaved runway. This is from the 1952 MHNF map. Attachment : image.png
