Mount Hood Memories In Anticipation of Summer
Western Oregon weather has been fabulous lately and I’m excited to really get after some adventure this summer. I found a couple photos from one of hundreds of trips to Mount Hood we took with our old pup Nikko (see Thanks for the Memories: A Dog’s Life).
While I love the Wallowas and the Front Range, the Bitterroots and the Adirondacks, there is no single mountain I know that rivals Mount Hood in my heart. It is approachable yet daunting, beautiful yet rugged, inspiring yet backbreaking, fun yet dangerous to the unprepared.
If Nikko were still around, he would probably be whining for a good hike. I’m thinking Yocum Ridge. Summer is coming. Let’s do this!
