Editorial Reviews

Mount Hood is the tallest mountain in Oregon (11,239 feet) and certainly its most dangerous: Since the mid-1970s, more than 100 people have died on its slopes. But "Hood" is also one of the most scenic peaks in America and the centerpiece for activities including mountain climbing, camping, mushrooming, and whitewater rafting. Peter Marbach's splendid pictorial captures the many faces of this spectacular peak, as well as other region attractions, including Timberline Lodge, Rock Creek Reservoir, the Old Oregon Trail, and the many area lakes.
