More than 10,000 people attempt to climb Mt. Hood every year, weather patterns can be deceptive, with sudden sustained winds of 60 miles per hour and visibility dropping from miles to an arm's length. Map knowledge and study is critical.
Dense Oregon forests, and steep elevations make forest management a challenge.

Winter 2017, Oregon

Photography by Jason Frank Rothenberg

Our adventures took us to Oregon this year, to an area of the Pacific Northwest known for its diverse landscapes and waterways,
and for the people devoted to them. At the foot of Mount Hood, we fished Trillium Lake alongside Portland restaurateur Jason
French, who filled our bellies at day’s end with his extraordinary campfire cooking. And up on the great mountain itself—the
11,249-foot stratovolcano is the state’s highest point—we encountered a community of close comrades, impressively
skilled in mountain rescue, who showed us courage in action. We were inspired at every elevation.
