Goat Sighting - Climbing Mount Hood, Oregon

It's mountain climbing time in the Pacific Northwest and nothing says mountaineering and the Pacific Northwest more than Mount Hood and rime ice.

This past week's "Show Us Your Goat" winner comes from Julia the Mountain Girl. Julia recently dropped everything for an adventure in Oregon.

Photo Shot by: Julia Borchardt (self portrait - she's got mad flexibility!)
Photo Location: Near the Pearly Gates on Mount Hood.
About the photo:
At the top of the Hogsback are the famed Pearly Gates which were everything I had anticipated. Pearly white, glistening ice formations rise high above you as you climb through the narrow slot that leads to the summit.

Near the summit of Mount Hood, OregonCheck out Julia's Mount Hood trip report about her 12 hour and 23 minute to Mount Hood from Seattle, her cartweel on the summit and the ravenous ravens. It's worth the read.

As a weekly winner Julia will receive a Backcountry.com Nalgene water bottle that she can use on her next adventure.

If you think you've got what it takes to stick a winner but you haven't got a sticker to stick, well head on over to Backcountry.com and get yourself a FREE goat sticker. Then get out there and stick it, take a photo and submit it online.
