HomePicture Night

Picture Night is an opportunity to enjoy pictures and stories of outdoor adventures and travel most often presented by fellow Chemeketans.  During the presentations, we often learn a bit of history about the area visited and about the people encountered.  Picture Night is usually held the second Friday of each month, September through May (except December).  Read on for information about this month’s presentation.

Mt. Hood Timberline Trail Escapades

Friday, May 17, 7:00p.m.
Broadway Commons, Mongolia Room (#305)
1300 Broadway Street NE, Salem, OR

Our presenter, Kim Dianich, grew up hiking in the Columbia River Gorge east of Portland. At fourteen, her father gave her a Mazamas Basic Climbing course as a gift and thus started a number of years mountain and rock climbing NW peaks. She was a Mazamas Asst. Mountain Climb leader for a couple of years before discovering Ptarmigan Mountaineering Club in Vancouver, Washington. Kim held a number of Board positions with the Ptarmigans and edited their newsletter for 6 years before going off to work overseas. Returning to Portland, Kim and her family are still avid hikers. 

For May Picture Night, she will share experiences from her last trip circumnavigating Mt. Hood’s Timberline Trail with her 83-year-old father and her husband. The trail is 41 miles and has an elevation gain of 10,300 feet. Come enjoy this presentation to hear fun stories of their experience and see how beautiful a close-to-home wilderness trip can be.
