Darryl Lloyd presents Ever Wild
DATE CHANGED! (The previously scheduled date fell on Election Day. Our apologies to anyone who'd planned to attend the week before.)
Annie Bloom's welcomes Hood River author and photographer Darryl Lloyd to present Ever Wild: A Lifetime on Mount Adams. The event will include a slideshow.
What binds a man’s soul to a mountain? Through a personal journey spanning seven decades, Darryl Lloyd cemented his place in the sweeping story of Washington state’s Mount Adams. Lloyd is the foremost authority on this northern Cascades massif, a sometimes overlooked, but never forgotten, hulk of a mountain known as Pahto to its earliest inhabitants. Growing up on a ranch at the mountain’s base, Lloyd devoted his life to learning the mountain, observing the ebb and flow of its glaciers, photographing the play of light, wandering lush meadows and old-growth forests, hiking boulder-strewn slopes and scaling icefalls…and showing the way for those who’ve followed.
Ever Wild is a mix of adventure memoir with enlightening doses of human history, geography, geology, botany, and a call for protection.
