    They have indentified one of the hikers as Kelly James. Please all pray for his family as this tough time. I am starting not to like the outcome of this trio, I have a bad feeling.

    I had to edit some of those full article posts. Besides it being illegal to cut and paste an entire article it is generally frowned upon.

    In the future please post a few snippets and a link to the full article.

    Has anyone on this forum climbed Hood?

    I have never been on that mountain. I've been on Rainier and Adams. The Cascade volcanoes are amazing. Besides Rainier they aren't particularly tall, but they really are massive mountains. Standing isolated and well above their surroundings.

    I was working in the area for quite a bit one year. Did not climb Hood but drove closer to see it.

    [QUOTE=Bill O]Has anyone on this forum climbed Hood?

    My brother has climbed Hood and he said it is an amazing mountain. He said the south side is an easy walk up. I think that is why so many people get in trouble on Hood. They don't look at it as a difficult or dangerous mountain. There seems to be two extremes to Hood. The very easy south side and the very diffficult North side. Next time I am out in Ashland Oregon to see my brother I think I am going to have him take me up. He always talks about Hood and how I should climb it with him and I think I am now going to take him up on it. Weather can make any mountain dangerous.
