McNeil Shelter Hike on Father’s Day

For Father’s Day, Kevin chose McNeil Shelter on Mt. Hood as our destination.  Sarah and Charles joined us and Andrew had to work.  I brought a bag of tootsie rolls to pass out to the dads and on the drive up, asked how to approach men about their fatherhood status.  Our daughter said, “Just say, here toots”.  It was a fun day on the trails and all the men got tootsie rolls regardless!

    How fun to make it a family affair! Mt Hood is looking a little bare this time of year, isn’t it? Still a majestic mountain!
