Oregon: Mount Hood

August 25, 2012

Oregon is one of many states in the U.S. that could be its own country, size-wise. We experienced much of what the state has to offer on our road trip, with stops in Bend to visit some friends and hike around town, Portland for the hipster life, replete with breweries and bookstores, and a few places in between.

Mount Hood was the first real mountain to serve as a backdrop for a vest photo.

I lived for two years with a couple of guys from near Portland, so some of my strongest associations to the state are through them: Nike, the Ducks, advertising, and the Chicago Cubs.
