Went to the Cascades

6/28/09 — Went to the Cascades over the weekend, this time with family, which was fantastic. We climbed the gentle side of Mt Hood up to the 9,300 foot level and the base of Illumination Rock, where we were treated to a great view of the rugged west side of the mountain.

Then we skied down the Zig Zag Glacier (see below) and had lemonade at Timberline Lodge.

After two mountain adventures in one week, I’m especially stoked to get back to my writing!
