Details

A group of seven friends celebrates reaching the summit of Mount Hood in this 1894 image from an unknown photographer. 1894 was the year the Mazama climbing club was formed, holding their organizational meeting at the summit the afternoon of July 19th. Over the course of the day, 155 men and 38 women climbed Mt. Hood in small groups. Of the total, 105 became charter members of the Mazamas, the third oldest mountaineering society in the country. While we don't know for sure this photo was taken that particular day, it's fun to think about the possibility. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
