On Mount Hood: A Biography of Oregon's Perilous Peak

On Mount Hood: A Biography of Oregon's Perilous Peak - Jon Bell Enjoyable flyover of Mount Hood. There was a little too much focus on climbers lost, disasters and the never-omitted-when-it-could-be-mentioned tragic OES trip. Stil, I liked the parts about the Timberline Trail, and I dug the bits and pieces of history that Bell wove in. His voice is warm and engaging, and I learned some things. Now I have to look for the book I somehow expected (though, given the title of this one, I have no idea why), which is a guide to all the hikes on Hood.
