Castle rock is exactly what it sounds like.  Its castle that looks like a rock.  Or a rock that looks like a castle.  I couldnt really figure out which way it goes but it sure is fun to climb up.  If there are any old school Nickelodeon fans out there its kind of like the Aggro Crag in the show Guts.  Wind, snow, tumbling rocks, international fame and glory.  Lets go to Moe for the official time.

This is the view from the top.  The other other panoramic shots in this post are also from the top of the rock.

Finding this machine parked in the snow 3 miles away from station with no keys in it was arguably the most disappointing time in my life.  Its a Tucker Sno Cat.  Vintage: 1984.  This thing is perfect.  Hydraulic steering, 4 track drive and a cozy little cab in the back.  I just need to figure out why I need one of these back in Oregon and convince Becky that its a necessity.  The dog would like it too.  This ones name is Stella.  I spent more time in the cab of this thing than I did on Castle Rock.

Another sweet machinery/landscape juxtaposition for the collection.  Score.

    OK, Castle Rock is cool (I suspect it’s a rock that looks like a castle, and not the other way around, if that helps). But the Sno Cat is a definite must-have for any Oregonian. You’ll need it to summit Mount Hood, Ranier in the next state over (not mentioning them by name after last week’s wild-card game), and other off-road places. It would tend, however, to tear up the streets. I also think they had you in mind when they took the keys….
