A Tromp Through Old-Growth Mountain Hemlock

It could have been the middle of May, as a group of adventurous 6th graders set out to enjoy a sunny day of snowshoeing on Mt. Hood this past Saturday.  Even though it was the first time snowshoeing for almost the whole group, we covered nearly five miles over the course of the day while still finding the time to explore a frozen lake, have multiple snowball battles, a snowball throwing contests, and build a bearded snowman.  We learned about the ancient hemlock trees, old man's beard, and the winter landscape of the Cascade Mountains.  Sitting on the back of the bus, we wrapped up a grand adventure with hot chocolate, homemade cookies, and rice crispie treats.  Please enjoy some photos from this great day.
