Sec­re­tary of the In­te­ri­or Dick Kemp­thorne cit­ed cli­mate change as a key rea­son for the threat to po­lar bears. The state­ment prompted en­vi­ron­men­tal­ists to see in the move a pos­si­bly ma­jor de­par­ture from the Bush ad­min­is­tra­tion’s past in­at­ten­tion to the glob­al warm­ing threat.“Po­lar bears are one of na­ture’s ul­ti­mate sur­vivors, able to live and thrive in one of the world’s harsh­est en­vi­ron­ments,” said Kemp­thorne. “But we are con­cerned the po­lar bears’ hab­i­tat may lit­er­al­ly be melt­ing.”   Courtesy ...

Trails leading from Upper Three Creek Sno-Park offer scenic views of Cascades I pause to catch my breath and take in the spectacular scenery around me. Ahead looms the massive snow-covered South Sister. To my right, through lodgepole pines, I glimpse Middle and North Sister, equally massive and clad in white. Not a breeze stirs the air; not a cloud appears in the blue winter sky. Occasional chirping of chickadees and nuthatches in the forest ... [full story]

If you're anything like me, I'm sure that during the recent holiday season someone accused you of being a difficult person to buy presents for. Whether it's birthdays, Father's Days or holidays, no one seems to know what to get me. So, like many of you, I ring in the new year with a fist full of gift cards to my favorite sporting goods stores -- each entitling me to my own little shopping spree. ... [full story]

I woke up in the middle of the night, stuck my head out of the sleeping bag and thought to myself, “Where the heck am I?” Then I remembered. I’m about six feet under the surface of the snow on the side of Mount Bachelor in the middle of winter. This wasn’t a dream (or a nightmare), but one of the most memorable winter experiences I’ve ever had.   Dave Nissen of Wanderlust Tours of Bend ... [full story]

If it's not snow or freezing rain, it's bone-chilling air temperatures and icy winds that make a day on the water nearly insufferable. But just because you're uncomfortable, it doesn't mean that the bass are. Sure, it's December, it's cold outside and I'm sure you still have some holiday shopping to do, but bass are still in the lake. If they want to make it through the winter they will have to eat.As the water ... [full story]
