MT. HOOD, OR ~ (July 7, 2010) ~

There are two ways to watch the action at this weekend’s Annual Bonfire Pipe to Pipe snow and skate event-dust off those snowboard boots and leave the city heat for an unforgettable summer day on Mt. Hood, or watch the skate event live on Windell’s web cams: http://windells.com/media/webcams/
