I got a Hell Gate in Missoula, too!

pacanis, you're the closest. Hell's Gate is a particular spot in the Fraser Valley. It was naturally occurring and when the railroad built there, an accident occurred and Hell's Gate was created. They had to create a special thing for the salmon to spawn, otherwise the salmon would have died out there.

You're up.

I can't take this one, Alix. I had to Google just to put a place to it, otherwise I thought Hell's Gate was a movie back in the eighties, lol.
I defer to anyone else, probably Bucky, since he probably had Hell Gate in NYC right on the top of his head.

Hell's Gate is in BC. BT was on the wrong side of the continent! LOL! OK, how about another one from me then. I'll be around a bit longer this time.

What's the common name for the Dieffenbachia plant? Bonus points if you know what happens if you ingest some.

Signing off for a bit. I'll check back just before I leave for work. If no one has it by then I'll post the answer and someone else can take a shot at it.

You got it! I often threaten to make salad for my one daughter out of it.

OK, what is the active itch causing ingredient in poison ivy? Bonus: T or F, only humans get poison ivy.

it's the oil on the leaves, but i guess you want more specifics.

luckily, i'm immune to poison ivy. i don't know why, but i've hacked the stuff down more than once with other people that have gotten bad cases of it, but i went unscathed. and i've hiked through it many times to no ill effect.
