May 13, 2015 I hopped a flight out to Portland OR to meet up with my climbing group. Our goal was to meet up at the airport, and head out to Governors Camp - the typical "basecamp" area for Mt. Hood climbs.
Before we did, we first did an obligatory stop at the Rogue brewery in downtown Portland we had a pre-trip tasting.
