A party of nine people from the Ore
gon Nature Lovers' Club spent the last
week end in further exploration in the
vicinity of Eden Parkj the newly dis
covered mountain park on the North'
west slopes of Mount Hood. Tbe
members of the party were Mr. and
Mrs. F. W. Rockhold, Mr. and Mrs. D,
C. Baker and Miss Thelma Salisbury,
of Paikdale, Mr. and Mrs. C. E,
Graves and Paul Hoeriein, of Hood
River, and Mies Mildred Cushing, of
Portland. The trip was made via the
trail to Red Hill from Parkdale and
the new trail from Red Hill to the
mountain. This trail has been further
slashed and blazed during the last
week and now leads to the top of tbe
ridge directly east of Eden Park. Any
one of several grassy glades on the
western slope of the ridge will lead
into the park by an easy grade. The
whole trip from Lava Beds Park near
Parkdale to Eden Park can now be
made in from four to five hours with
out a pack and five to seven hours with
a pack, depending on th - size of the
pack and the ability of the packer,
ihe country between Eden Park and
the Sandy river basin was explored on
this trip. Although many beauty spots
were round, none or them were com-
psrable to Eden Park for beauty and
variety of scenery. The flowers were
practically all gone at this time of the
year, except in a few damn shadv
glades. Their absence was somewhat
compensated for by the brilliant pink
and red hues of the alpine huckleberry
bushes and mountain ash, which cover
the upland plateaus in places. Bird
life was unusually abundant for the
high altitudes. Many species were ob
served that had not previously been
seen on- the higher elopes. Their pres
ence is perhaps accounted for by the
fact that migration is now in full
swing and tne Dims were stopping en
route for the luscious menu of wild
fruits and berries and flower seeds
that are so abundant in the alpine
Iwo members of the tartv crossed
bandy uiacier to Keid Glacier and
made some explorations in the nark
country below the latter glacier. They
also discovered a hitherto uncharted
and unnamed glacier in the region be
tween faandy and Ladd glaciers but en
tirely separate from either one of
them. It is a secondary glacier, having
its origin on the side or the mountain
instead of on the too. It has probablv
been considered a snowfield in the
past, but photographs were obtained
which prove conclusively that it has
all the distinguishing marks of a genu
ine glacier, moraines, a bergschrund
ana crevasses that compare favorably
in size witn tnose on sandv ulacier.
it was named Eden Park Ulacier, be
cause it Jdrainsj into the west fork of
Ladd creek which flows alone the
western edge of the park.
further explorations were also made
at the northern end of Eden Park to
get further data as to its length and
northern boundary. It is not as long
as first supposed, probably not over
two miles from its southern boundary
at the terminal moraine of Ladd Gla
cier to the confluence of East and West
Ladd creeks at its northernmost noint.
it drops down quite abruptly for sev
eral hundred feet at the northwest and
northeast corners, well wooded on the
northwest, but gravelly on the north
east. The whole northern tip of the
park abounds in magnificent groves of
mountain hemlock and fir, but the
open spaces between them are not so
large and sweeping as in the main part
or tne parK.
The miniature mountain lakes in the
park not only add to its scenic beauty.
out iney nave a recreational value as
well. Three members of the party
demonstrated this fact by donning
meir naming suits and taking a plunge
in a group of these lakes. They are
comparatively shallow, not over-three
or tour feet deep, and are not fed from
the glaciers, which allows the sun to
warm them up to a comfortable tem
perature. Their beaches are velvety
lawns which earlier in the season are
masses of brilliant hued flowers. It is
a setting from fairyland, and all of its
aengnts are now easily accessible to

(From the Roadrunner. published bv
aianaara uu
i ne peopie oi uregon nave made a
great and wise investment in good
roads. They have provided themselves
with means for both commercial and
pleasure transportation. The people
of other states owe Oregon a debt of
gratitude for her work in bringing
many of the state's scenic wonders
within easy access. This debt will in
orease year by year as additional miles
or durbale highways are built.
the tentative state hiarhwav svstem
oi uregon. as outlined in the fourth
biennial report of the State Iliehwav
Commission, contains a total of 4.458
miles. This mileage is composed
roughly of three east-and-west and
three north-and-south trunk lines cross
ing the state, with various connecting
lorai ana incidental roads, f orty roads
have been considered important enough
to be designated by name in the state
highway system. The first and most
important trunk line running north and
south is the Pacific Highway. This
highway runs from Portland to the
California line south of Ashland. The
second north-and-south route is The
Dalles-California Highway from The
Dalles south through Klamath Falls
into California, and along the entire
coast line is the third route, the pro-
posea Miasi or Kooseveit Highway.
ine primary east-west route is the
Columbia River Highway from Astoria
to rendleton and its southeasterly ex
tension, tne uia uregon Trail. A sec
ond route runs east from Newport on
the coast through the center of the
state to the Idaho line, and a third
road, comprising sections of several
highways, crosses the southern part of
the state.
The paving work completed or under
process at this time is practically all
included in the form of a creat "T."
of which the Columbia River Iliehwav
is the horizontal and tbe Pacific and
west Side highways the vertical.
ihe uilubmia Kiver Iliehwav is 340
miles loner. It consists of 200 miles
of paving from Astoria to The Dalles.
and 143 miles of gravel and crushed
rock surf seine from The Dalles to Pen
dleton. The construction of some of
the paved parta of this highway was
probably the most difficult highway
construction ever undertaken in the
United States. For many miles it was
necessary to construct the roadbed up
on the rugged, nearly vertical walls of
the Columbia Kiver Gorge, recessitat
ing that the road be carved out of solid
rock. In many places rock bluffs over
hang the finished highway, and at six
places tunneling was done through
rock points which could not otherwise
be passed. For almost its entire length
tne highway presents a aeries of bnue
es, rock walls, overhanging bluffs and
Crown Point is one of the famous
spots on this highway. From this van
tage ground reached by the road in a
succession of curves, with no grade
over five per cent, a vista of river and
mountain scenery over seventy miles
in extent is opened up to view. Not
far from here is tbe site of the myth
ical bridge of the gods, which, accord
ing to Indian legend, once reached
across the river for a distance of five
miles at that great height
the entire distance from Astoria to
The Dalles, with tbe exception of a
tretch of a few hundred feet, is paved
with avphaltie concrete. Ihe first
units were laid in 1915 by Multnomah
county, and construction was continued
year by year until this year, when the
last sap is being completed. In tbe
earlier yeara the type -of pavement
was two-inch aspbaltic concrete sur
face, Warren type, on a crushed rock
base. Practically all the later units
have been three-inch asphaltie concrete
base and two-inch asphaltie concrete
surface (Warren type.)
Tbe Columbia Kiver Highway is
famous throughout the United States,
and on this account carries a large
mount of tourist travel each year.
As the best route from the grain and
cattle mintry east cf the Cascades to
roriiand and the coast, commercial
vehicle travel is heavy.
The Pacific Highway is 34a miles
long, and. with the West Side High:
way, which joins it at Portland and
Juncti? City, comprises an extent of
460 milts. Paving cn tbefe roads was
commenced in 1914 bf Jackon county
under state engineers, and the present
summer should se the completion of
pavirg on the highways, since every
section from the I ahfomia line to
Poitland over the West Side ltfchay
has been completed or placed under
contract. About 3-V) miles, or nearly
75 rr cent cf tnis road, ia paved with
asphaltie concrete. Here again, as in
the Columbia River Highway, the old
er pavements are usually two-inch
asphaltie concrete surface. Warren
type, on a crushed rock base, while the
last few years have shifted predomi
nance to the five-inch asrihatlic con
crete laid in two courses.
The Pacific Highway passes through
the Rogue River, Umpqua and Willam
ette River valleys, the heart of Ore
gon'a richest agricultural country. Its
use as a market road for the move
ment of farm produce is extensive, and
the pavemdnts have carried heavy
traffic since they were laid. The sum
mer tourist travel ia growing from
year to year on account of the beauti
ful scenery and the many trout
streams, and, with the completion of
ine remaining links in the highway
icis year, bids rair to still further in
crease by leaps and bounds.
Crater Lake, unique amoncr natural
wonders, is reached from Medford, on
tbe Pacific Highway. . This deep blue
lake is set 2,000 feet down in the
crater of an extinict volcano.

From Council Crest, the city's show
place, is to be seen one of the famous
views of America.
Practically all of the pavine in Ore
gon s highway system has been laid on
the Columbia River and Pacific high
ways, aunougn enort sections of as
phaltic concrete have been laid on sec
ondary highways for a short distance
out of Portland, between Astoria and
beaside, from Pendleton to the Wash
ington line near Walla Walla and near
La Grande. It haa been the policy of
the Highway Commission, however, to
complete tne two major Highways first.
On December 6, 1920, the Highway
Commission had expended slightly over
ji.uuu.uw, ana the amounts since
made available have raised this total
near the $50,000,000 mark, including
county ana government funds spent by
the state. The main source of funds
has been state bonds, voted bv the
people, although- federal aid funds
have also been utilized to the extent of
several million dollars. These funds
have been expended not only for pav
ing, nut also in grading and rocking
many hundreds of miles of highways
which will be paved at some future
Of the 4,458 miles in the Oretron
state highway system, 600 miles have
been paved with asphaltie concerte.
and 161 miles with hydraulic concrete.
The total of 761 miles of paved high
ways compares very favorably with
what has been done in other states of
greater population. This mileage in
cludes sections now under contract.
Ihe predominance of the asphaltie
concerte type of pavement is immedi
ately noticeable in Oregon. This tvne
of pavement has carried the traffic for
varying periods ranging up to eight
yeara in the state system with splendid
success. In doing so it has adequately
met the widest extreme in climatic
and subgrade conditions. One condition
which is quite uniform on most of the
patvements ia that of heavy annual
rainfall, usually over 40 inches a year.
The impervious asphaltie concrete
pavements have proved their ability to
protect the subgrade from dilution and
consequent loss of supporting strength
due to water percolating through the
The fact that Oregon has seen fit to
lay 600 miles of asphaltie; concrete
pavement in a country of heavy rains
proves confidence in the durability of
asphaltie concrete.
The Equinoctial
Period is at hand, and the wise
automobile owner is jroing to
be prepared against the rains
that always accompany this

The Oregon Fruit Cleaner Co., com

revived the manufacture of a machine
used in cleaning and polishing apples.
The apparatus was first placed on the

Weeds Cause Accident
Weeds growing along an embank
ment of the boat road on the east aide
of Hood river, have resulted in two
serious accidents the past week. The
road is narrow at the point and motor

growth of weeds, bave driven on the
shoulder, which is loose gravel and
quickly gives way. The two cars
were overturned, although the occu
pants were only slightly bruised.
County road authorities have been
urged to cut tbe weeds.
