      • Mt. Hood History R11 Barlow Road Tollgate


        from Emilio Trampuz Added 51 0 0

        Barlow Road was a toll road for almost 70 years, from 1846 to 1915. The toll gate was located in 5 different locations over the course of that time. The last location was about 1 mile east of Rhododendron (on highway 26), where a replica of the original tollgate was built in 1969 and is still standing. This replica is at the end of Pioneer Bridle Trail, and right next to a small parking lot for visitors. This video talks about the tollgate, but it is also a summary of the Barlow Road as a whole. The official deed in 1919 transferring ownership to the State of Oregon is inspirational and is quoted in this video. Thanks to Lloyd Musser, curator, Mt. Hood Museum in Government Camp, for access to the museum's archives, for maps, pioneer diaries, and more. Also, thanks to all those who contributed their photos for this video: Kurt Wilke, Bruce McGavin, Chuck Westergren, Dan Lane, John Davis, Kristine Canham, Scott Stepan, and Lisa Miller.

        • Mt. Hood History R2 Kiwanis Camp Rd.


          from Emilio Trampuz Added 18 0 0

          When the modern highway 26 was built in the late 1950s, between Portland and Government Camp, the new road cut through the old Mt. Hood highway in two places, so Kiwanis Camp Rd today dead ends not far from where the new road cuts across it. This old highway was used to build Timberline Lodge, and President Roosevelt traveled along it in 1937 to inaugurate Timberline Lodge.

          • Mt. Hood History R5 Pioneer Woman's Grave


            from Emilio Trampuz Added 63 0 0

            Lots of people died on the Oregon Trail. They died of diseases, food poisoning, physical accidents, and many other causes. Just 3 miles east of Government Camp, a woman pioneer died on her way to Oregon City. She was very sick for a few days and her husband and two kids stayed with her by the side of Barlow Road, hoping she would recover. When she died, they buried her there. Her grave was later discovered by workers building the Mt. Hood Loop Highway in 1924, and her grave was then moved a bit to the side of the highway. Ever since then, people who visited the simple grave left little trinkets as tokens of appreciation and sympathy. This video was recorded in July 2013, during a history bicycle tour organized by the Emilio Trampuz of the Mountain High Snowsport Club in Portland, Oregon.

            • Mt. Hood History R3 Silent Rock & Map Turn


              from Emilio Trampuz Added 77 0 0

              Even the relatively new highway 26 at Mt. Hood, Oregon, has its own history and local lore. Just 4 or 5 miles west of Government Camp, there are two points of interest: 1. Silent Rock (where everyone is supposed to observe a moment of silence while passing by), and 2.the Map turn, named after a map of the area that was originally placed there, but now more famous for the United States map visible on a hillside looking west from the Map turn.

                from Brett Carlson Added 693 0 0

                Hooked up with the PNWX club to make a run up to Badger Lake and a portion of the Barlow Road. Nice group to spend the day with. Video is mostly scraps from the spare cameras. Not much out of rig time to use the good camera. Made good with what I was able to capture.
