Field Trip: Mount Hood Timberline Lodge

This Field Trip is completely different than the ones I’ve done previously. While those focused on local Portland shops, for this one I drove up a mountain.

The Mississippi ReBuilding Center is probably the one of the least photogenic, most useful places I’ll feature here. They’re a non-profit that accepts donations of reusable building materials, and sells them to the […]
