Kiger canyon,,

In one of your pics, where you are standing across from the gun sight notch, (with the patches of snow beneath you)there is a faint trail of a road in the upper right area of the pic.(runs diagonal in your pic)
That road turns off to the left just as you enter the Kiger overlook road, and it eventually goes to Diamond,,all dirt/jeep road.
But as to down in that canyon,,,
I have long wanted to ride in (on horseback, bikes aren't allowed) into the bottom of that canyon, you can see the trails going in from up above. Gotta be gorgeous down there, all the aspens and the creek . and no frikken people! Oregon has some pretty special spots for sure! thanks Zacky!

Been there, done that - and it is every bit as beautiful as you'd imagine. Spent many a day chasing elk up the bottom of Kiger and McCoy, all the way to the big bowl shaped head of each canyon. Most of that brush that looks so short form the top is actually way over your head (even on horseback) when you get down in there.

Some purty good fishing to be had in the bottom of Big Indian as well . That part of the state is truly God's country.

I got to see Gramps 2 weeks ago in the dialysis unit. Still sharp as a tack but weak. It was time. He simply didn't wake up this morning.

I guarantee my Grandpa was tougher than yours.

Charles Henry Posthumus, Jr., age 90, died January 14, 2013. He leaves to cherish his memory his wife of 71 years, Theresa Jean (Rollins) and children, Judy Morse Emery, Diane (Norm) Long, Cindy (Roger) Bingham, Randy (Lisa) Posthumus, sisters Gladys (Harold) Krebs, Franny (Keith) Blough, Peg (Hayes) Cargill, and brother, Jerry Posthumus; sister-in-laws Ruth (Bud) Rifenberg and Elenor Rollins, and brother-in-law, Roger (Mary) Rollins. His legacy includes 18 grandchildren, 34 great grandchildren and 3 great great grandchildren.
Chuck was a veteran of WWII, serving valiantly in an Engineer Core of the Army throughout Europe. A great honor was bestowed when he received the Bronze Star and the Medal of Jubilee of Liberty from France for assistance in the D Day invasion.
Much of his life, he worked as a self-employed contractor. He built homes, did remodeling, and had a special gift with fine wood crafting, utilizing his strong character traits of determination and perfectionism. He took great pride in his work and loved to point out the many places where he left his imprint as we traveled around the area.
The family will remember him as a dedicated husband, father and grandfather who taught many great virtues by his example.
A Memorial Service will be held at Christ Lutheran Church on Friday, January 18, 2013 with visitation at 10 AM and the service at 11 AM.
Memorial contributions may be made to Christ Lutheran Church or the Clark Benevolent Fund.

Your grandfather must have been a very special man. Being married 71 years really says something especially in this age of disposable relationships. I bet you have tons of good memories of your grandfather. Sorry for your loss. Thanks for sharing this report and a little of your family.

My condolences Zack.. I lost my Grandfather at age 94 many years ago. Still think of him often and feel his presence around me. If we were as tough as our grandfathers this world would be a different place.
