Icy Riding at Hood Meadows

The snow has either melted down or blown off Mt.Hood in the past two weeks of sunshine.  Ladd, Dylan, Shaun Daley, Ryan, curly haired Al and I made the best of what is left, which happened to be a fun, firm set of wind-lips to hike just out of bounds.  A little sunshine made for […]
