Summary

Mount Hood

Sunrise on the summit.

Mid-June, 2001. Climbed Hood for the first time via its South Side Route. This was our 2nd Cascade volcano (after being guided up Shasta) and we went with some of Shirley’s friends from work. It was from this crew that we were initially exposed to the Mazamas. Early days of a soon-to-explode sickness in our lives…
