Darryl Lloyd's presentation "Time & Change on Mt. Adams," a part of the Sense of Place lecture series will be held Feb. 1 at Springhouse Cellar, 13 Railroad Ave., in Hood River.
Doors open at 6 p.m. with the lecture starting at 6:30.
Mt. Adams is like an old friend to Lloyd, who grew up at its base and started hiking its meadows and ridges as a 6-year-old in the late 1940s. Over a lifetime he has hiked, climbed, guided and photographed almost every nook and cranny on the mountain, from its deep forests to jagged ridges, shrinking glaciers and the summit ice-cap. He's a rare witness to dramatic changes on Mt. Adams and how people use the area.
Lloyd will go back in time more than 100 years to when the first photographs and a book were published about Mt Adams. As a professional photographer and a passionate advocate for the protection of the mountain, Lloyd will share a remarkable collection of photos and stories.
The Sense of Place lecture series seeks to foster deeper connections to our landscape and to each other via speakers who represent a variety of industries and perspectives.
Cost for the presentation is a $5 suggested donation.
