I have a deep love for this mountain, so much so I have a ring of the silhouette that I wear on my hand every single day.
I am missing it a lot this winter. Living in Australia is absolutely incredible, however missing winter has been one of the hardest things I've done in a long time.
I feel grateful for the experiences I've had in and around this mountain, they have shaped my life in ways I never could have understood at the time. From my first time sliding down slopes to my first winter summit, this mountain and I have been through it all.
So for all of you wishing winter would come to an end sooner, give it some love for me today. Embrace the rain, slide over some snow, and appreciate a season that doesn't get enough love. And if you can see "The Mountain" (as we call it in Portland) today, take a minute to appreciate the beauty and power of this magnificent landform. 🏔 Mt. Hood 📷 @caughtkiting
