Three men, in standard climbing garb for those days of suits and ties, reach the summit of Mount Hood in 1904. According to Jack Grauer, author of "The Complete History of Mount Hood", at that time mountaineers had no protection for their eyes and skin. "They'd go up there and they'd be absolutely blind for several days. And their skin was burned bright red. That's a pretty serious condition when you're burned that badly. This is not easy to get over. It takes several weeks to get over that. So I'm sure they road back to Portland on their horses in great pain." Still, judging from the view conveyed by this photo, I doubt they regretted their effort. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
