Looks like you climbed up Multnoma Falls. So did Jeff and I last summer! cool, huh?

nice!
Gorgeous shot of MT. Hood! When we lived there I was little. My dad took me and Steve skiing on Mt. Hood. I had these baby skies. Steve and Trink can see it from their house. If you have time, check out Jeff's photo album on facebook. He took some great shots last summer when we were there. Are you headed back east now?
