    I love hiking, but never had the interests in climbing a mountain.
    The danger of the crumbling shale, crevices, etc were always a turn off.
    I'm not that dedicated.

    I think Mt. Hood is the most climbed mountain in the USA. I was in my mid to late teens, in summer. I don't remember it being that hard just a long way to the top.

    I have a lot of love for that maintain. Learned to ski there on meadows. Like many on this site probably.
    Meadows was so fun.

    I do love the Mountain though.
    I learned to ski and snowboard on it. Tubing when I was a kid. And thousands of trips across it to travel to Bend.

    It's amazing how you take it for granted.
    I moved to Kentucky in 2010 for a year then came back.

    Of all the things I missed that mountain looming in the background most.
    After living here all my life moving to a place that's so flat and lifeless was pure torture.

    One of my all-time favourite scenic views in Oregon is found by standing on the steps of the Rose Garden, and seeing Mt Hood in the distance over downtown Portland. I must have taken a thousand shots, and never the same twice...but THIS has to be one of my all-time NON-Mt Hood pics....

    I was lucky to spend most of my childhood at Mt Hood, family had a cabin in government camp. Season pass at timberline from age 3 until about 16. The trout fishing in the creeks was phenomenal. Going up to Timberline Monday.
