A young woman pauses at Lower Serac, while climbing Mount Hood. A serac is a block or column of ice formed by intersecting crevasses on a glacier. The term comes from the French, where it originally referred to a crumbly white cheese. The name is appropriate, as seracs are very unstable and can be dangerous to attempt to traverse. While beautiful, they act as obstacles to a climb. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
