Today was my first hike in the 2012 American Lung Association Climb For Clean Air program. I am both a hike leader and a fundraiser/participant. I’m raising $3,700 (or more) as part of my climb of 14,410-foot Mount Rainier in July. As an Asthmatic, supporting the Lung Association is very important to me.
Clouds roil around 11,239-foot Mount Hood on April 24, 2010. This is the view from a ridge near 5,000 feet on the Tilly Jane trail.
