Summiting Mt. Hood

Every year more than 10,000 adventurers make the epic climb to summit all 11,240 ft of Mt. Hood, making it the most visited snow covered peak in America. While a technical climb, it is doable with training and heading out with a knowledgeable guide. Trust us, the view from above is worth it. 

Jacob Moon, an all around adventurer, joined that list of summiters and checked the climb off of his life-long bucket list. Read more about his experience here.

Lizzie Keenan has the lucky job of promoting Mt. Hood and the Columbia River Gorge region of Oregon everyday. When not at work, she enjoys doing yoga with alpacas, taking selfies with llamas, and eating avocados.
