My brother and I hiked up to the public park at Timberline again on Sunday. Since last week, there have been some significant changes. There is no longer a public pipe. They have also moved the jibs above the jump line. There were a total of 5 set - at the top was the mailbox set up canon style to gap to flatbox (cool feature - I saw disasters, lots of switch ups and some people airing out the flatbox entirely). In the middle was a pair - on the left the flat bar up - gap - flat and on the right was the left banked c box. At the bottom was a flat bar on the right and the urban setup single barrel down rail with donkey dick on the left. The jumps were the same as last weekend (double take-off 35 and 25 at the top and a single take off larger jump - size still debatable because we didn't pace it out). They have now added a decent sized quarterpipe below the lower jump - it can be hit as either a quarter or as a right side hip.
It is now impossible to ride to the parking lot - but it is only about 100 yards or so of walking from the end of the snow.
Sound about right, ponyboy? Does anyone find it ironic that I am the one doing park updates for our neighbor/competitor :P
Incidentally, the park guys were chilling in a tent by the jibs. As I am still waiting for a ruling on the true legality of hiking the park (cite me some case law), my brother and I respectfully abstained from hitting the park and just sat on the rocks drinking Hurricane Ice ($1.74 for 24oz at the Flying J in Troutdale) and watching the shred. We later hiked up above the Windell's park - I imagine that is what park skiing in heaven would be like (but with a rope tow) - and rode down the palmer to the mile and back to the parking lot. I absolutely did not poach the top jump line in the Windell's park (small but really well shaped) and in no way did I hit the jumps (brilliantly constructed) and quarterpipe when we rode down past the public park to the parking lot.
