The Book. The Mountain. Everything in between.

Mount Hood

One of the most spectacular mountains in all the world. Its symmetrical beauty, its crystalline waters, towering forests and massive glaciers, its climbing adventures and tragedies, historic lodges, piling snow, relentless rain, and epic hiking trails, make it a peak like no other.

This site is dedicated to Oregon’s tallest mountain, both through On Mount Hood: A Biography of Oregon’s Perilous Peak, a book I wrote to tell the story of Mount Hood in a way that’s surprisingly never been done before, and through anything and everything related to the mountain: news, conditions, trails, campsites, wines, accidents, triumphs, stories, connections, and much, much more.
