Hike the Seven Lakes Basin – Medford News, Weather, Sports, Breaking News https://www.tempo-visuel.com/hike-the-seven-lakes-basin-medford-news-weather-sports-breaking-news/ Fri, 24 Sep 2021 08:00:00 +0000 https://www.tempo-visuel.com/hike-the-seven-lakes-basin-medford-news-weather-sports-breaking-news/

Bushwhack at Lake Ivern seemed like a good idea at the time

Photo by Lee Juillerat Steve Underwood soaks up the view of Cliff Lake in the Sky Lakes Wilderness.

Editor’s Note: First part of a two-part story. See part two in Oregon Outdoors next Friday.

SKY LAKES NATURE ZONE – After studying the map, this seemed like a good idea.

According to the Forest Service Sky Lakes Wilderness Area map, the distance from the Middle Fork Rogue River Trail to Ivern Lake is only about half a mile. The contours indicated descents but, hell, we are experienced hikers.

This was our second day of a four day backpacking tour of the Sky Lakes Seven Lakes Basin. A day earlier we had hiked to Cliff Lake after meeting at Sevenmile Trailhead, the eastern entrance to the wilderness. We – Dan Hawkes, Steve Underwood and I – had a late morning encounter with my daughter, Molly, who had traveled from Eugene with her happily rambunctious dog, Loki.

From the start of the trail it was about 5 1/2 miles to Cliff Lake, the most popular lake in the Seven Lakes Basin in the Seven Lakes Basin. Even on weekdays the trailhead is a popular jumping off point for backpackers, hikers, and hunters, as evidenced by cars, vans, and a larger RV that filled the small parking lot and required us to park. down and out of the way.

Before the Sevenmile Trail reaches its junction with the Pacific Crest Trail, it passes through lodgepole pine stands. After about two miles, at its junction with the PCT, we passed through forests of subalpine hemlock and Shasta red fir.

A lone backpacker we encountered on the trail was spending just one night at a beautiful, spacious lakeside campsite on the south shore of Cliff Lake. So, following Molly’s example, we found another location for our four tents: a bench overlooking the lake. From our balcony, while overlooking the lake, we enjoyed a breathtaking view of Devil’s Peak and, even more spectacularly, a button below the summit that protrudes like a proverbial sore thumb.

Molly heard the “eek-eeks” of the pikas, or “rock bunnies”. Some of us spotted a bald eagle hovering over the lake, almost at eye level in front of our campsite. ‘Camp robbers’ patrolled overhead, gray jays poaching food.

After a cool and crispy night and breakfast, we left. The Seven Lakes Basin Trail took us past South Lake and then climbed steadily on the Alta Lake Trail to its namesake lake. Alta is an unusually long, straight, and lean lake, narrow enough that it is possible to throw a boulder across its width. A side trail near the north end of Alta led to a ridge and Violet Hill, where the view overlooks several lakes in the Seven Lakes Basin. Though semi-obscured by lingering smoke from distant forest fires, distant peaks included Union Peak, Mount Scott, Llao Rock, and the needle-topped Mount Thielsen.

Continuing north and descending steadily on the Lake Alta Trail, we passed a junction with the King Spruce Trail, which provides access from Rogue Valley, and then leaned briefly east on the Middle Fork Rogue River Trail. With Dan and Molly using GPS units for directions, we crossed the country slightly north-northeast towards unseen Lake Ivern.

What originally seemed like a good idea, taking a detour through Ivern, didn’t look so alluring as we wandered over and around fallen logs, struggled over and around an under – inflexible, bushy and dense floor and have stumbled around a love brush. Along a bubbling stream, near fields of mostly outdated blueberries, we rested and scouted.

The pathless path to Ivern was blocked by an intimidating hill. The descent was ruled out due to the sheer drops to the still unseen lake about 600 vertical feet below. So we rushed forward, gradually making our way along and around until, through the trees, patches of the blue waters of Ivern appeared through the trees. Eventually a slight rocky path led to a resting place by a lake where we dropped off, gobbled up some lunches and, using steripens filtering the water, refilled water bottles. .

The hike back to Cliff Lake was somewhat disappointing. The Ivern Lake Trail was visible and easy to follow along the subalpine prairies past Big Foot and another unnamed spring, semi-hidden North Lake and, for two miles, Middle Lake. In another half mile we were back at our Cliff Lake porch. The total loop was between 9-1 / 2 and 10 miles, a distance that felt longer due to the unexpected struggle to reach Ivern.

Looking back, despite the effort and knowing that none of us would likely – hell – hiking through the country to Ivern had been a good idea.

  • Weak German, French and European PMI.
  • DAX, EUR / USD overlooks economic data.
  • The DAX exceeds 15,600.
  • EUR / USD rectangle support tested.

FUNDAMENTAL CONTEXT OF THE EURO ZONE

GERMAN GIVES EU PMI’S A PRECURSOR

After yesterday FOMC decision to start declining later this year (November / December), markets are still considering the announcement of fed President Jerome Powell. The underlying environment will obviously remain extremely buoyant until then, so equities could continue to climb. The US dollar has gained slightly compared to euro who could be a refuge play as the maturity of Evergrande’s debt approaches. Germany (the strongest economy in the region) with France missed PMI forecast ahead of print from the EU which followed suit – see economic calendar below. The manufacturing and production sectors have collapsed mainly due to a shortage of supply which has resulted in bottlenecks as demand remains high. Although trading activity is slowing MoM, a bright spot is that the index remains above the median level of 50 and could be quickly reversed if the challenges on the supply side abate.

Attention will now turn to the Evergrande situation as well as the German elections at the weekend. The German elections are essential for the country, because the outgoing Chancellor Angela Merkel has built a solid base with her foreign peers (united foreign policy) which reinforces the attractiveness of the country in the business space. This is clear from the distribution of income generation over the Germany 40 Index (DAX) – refer to the diagram below:

COD sets October 1 deadline for students to get vaccinated – Le Courrier https://www.tempo-visuel.com/cod-sets-october-1-deadline-for-students-to-get-vaccinated-le-courrier/ Tue, 21 Sep 2021 23:57:33 +0000 https://www.tempo-visuel.com/cod-sets-october-1-deadline-for-students-to-get-vaccinated-le-courrier/ Reading time: 2 minutes

The COD administration released COVID-19 vaccination verification procedures for COD students on Tuesday afternoon. However, information on testing for students who decide not to get the vaccine or what happens when students decline both the vaccination and the test is still unknown.

According to Gov. JB Pritzker’s executive order, COD students attending or planning to attend in-person or hybrid classes must either get fully immunized or adhere to weekly tests.

The deadline to submit proof of vaccination is October 1. To access the required form, students can go to inside.cod.edu, click on the myACCESS for students link, find the Miscellaneous heading and then click on the Submit My Vax Info link. After completing the required information, students will receive an email indicating that their submission has been received. After completing the form, students are required to submit a photo or scan of their vaccination card by email to[email protected]. The email must be from a COD student email ([email protected]) or the submission will not be processed. The student will then receive a second email confirming that their submission has been received.

Students who are not fully vaccinated but are planning to get vaccinated should receive their first injection of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or a single injection of Johnson & Johnson vaccine by October 1. Until fully immunized, students are required to undergo weekly testing. An individual is considered fully vaccinated after two weeks have passed since the second dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or the single dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

The medical and religious exemption forms for students can be found at inside.cod.edu> myACCESS for students> Student forms under the heading Miscellaneous, and once completed they will be sent by email. Medical exemption forms require approval from a medical provider to exempt a student. Religious exemptions must be indicated on the form. General reluctance to the COVID-19 vaccine is not enough for a religious exemption, according to procedures released Tuesday. If a student has an exemption, whether religious or medical, the student must still undergo weekly testing. Students will receive instructions on how to comply with the test requirements at a later date. Note that requests can be reassessed at any time.

In a personal interview last week, COD Vice President Jim Bente said there are currently no plans to reprimand people who do not meet these requirements. Additionally, testing procedures are still ongoing, and details will be available soon.

This is an ongoing story and will be updated once more information is released. You can find more information on the exemption process at https://www.cod.edu/coronavirus/vaccine-exemption.aspx?utm_campaign=Retention%20Fall%202021%20Current%20Students&utm_medium=email&_hsmi=162117079&_hsenc=p2ANqtz-AlqJcUtDUAtWDUFUhLAEKmcO6rcj0s3v1I4a0-dHfPKI-fSqgbljPVUvIM3WX2zPh7sqWqFP57ruWpp6H5OMnPEYcxg&utm_content=162117079&utm_source=hs_email.

Oregon Democrats withdraw power-sharing redistribution deal – Medford News, Weather, Sports, Breaking News https://www.tempo-visuel.com/oregon-democrats-withdraw-power-sharing-redistribution-deal-medford-news-weather-sports-breaking-news/ Tue, 21 Sep 2021 14:20:00 +0000 https://www.tempo-visuel.com/oregon-democrats-withdraw-power-sharing-redistribution-deal-medford-news-weather-sports-breaking-news/

A handful of senators spoke to the Oregon State Senate on Monday, September 20, 2021, as the Oregon Legislature held a special session to consider the redistribution. The goal of the session is to adopt new legislative and congressional district maps for the state to use for elections. (AP Photo / Andrew Selsky)

The Democratic President of Oregon House on Monday rescinded a deal she had made with Republicans to share power as lawmakers redrawn political boundaries and added an additional seat in the United States House for the state.

The now-defunct deal struck earlier this year gained national attention because Democrats, who have an overwhelming majority in the legislature, agreed to forgo this redistribution benefit as they determine how Voters will choose state officials, state senators and members of Congress for the next five election cycles.

House Speaker Tina Kotek’s about-face means her Democratic Party will likely end up with five seats in the US House against that of the GOP. Currently, Democrats control four of the five House seats in Oregon.

Republican lawmakers have accused Democrats of gerrymandering – manipulating electoral district boundaries to gain unfair political advantage.

“What just happened is shameful and lacks integrity,” Rep. David Brock Smith, a Republican, said on House floors. “It shows the lack of ability to keep one’s word.”

Representative Shelly Boshart Davis, who is now the only Republican on the three-person congressional redistribution committee tasked with creating and voting on the new map, called Kotek’s decision “blatant.”

“The cards that we are looking at are unfair, and the only way to cross them is to cheat,” said Boshart.

In a statement, Kotek said she was “disappointed that after many months of work, House Republicans failed to engage constructively despite many attempts to address their concerns” and brought her in to decide to cancel the permanent agreement.

In April, during the 2021 legislative session, Kotek struck a deal with Republicans that in return for the GOP he would stop blocking bills with delaying tactics, Kotek would fairly split the House redistribution committee. – essentially granting a veto right to the GOP.

The deal gave Republicans a bigger say in what the six congressional districts and the state’s 90 legislative districts will look like.

The Senate passed the Congressional Democratic redistribution bill on Monday by a vote of 18-11. The House will meet on Tuesday morning.

It’s unclear if Kotek’s maneuver will work. Republicans could respond to the breakdown of the previous deal by walking away from Capitol Hill to deny Democrats a quorum.

The Democrats’ map proposes that the new Congressional District 6 be south of Portland, the largest city in Oregon, and west of Interstate 5. Republicans also place it south of Portland, but east side of the highway.

If the cards are not passed by Sept. 27, the task will fall on Secretary of State Shemia Fagan, a progressive Democrat few Republicans would like to see in charge of this process.

Lawmakers have only succeeded in pushing through redistribution plans twice since 1911.
