Author and photographer Darryl Lloyd will narrate his stunning photographic journey of seven decades on Washington State’s Mount Adams, mixing adventure memoir with human history, geography, geology, botany, and a call for protection. Lloyd is the foremost authority on Mount Adams, the central Cascades massif that is a sometimes overlooked, but never forgotten, hulk of a mountain.

Darryl Lloyd first explored the foot of Mount Adams as a toddler on the loose. He and his twin brother, Darvel, have been earnestly hiking and climbing since boyhood, and they’ve spent most of their adult lives inviting others to join them. Lloyd’s wide-ranging knowledge is highly regarded by leaders in diverse scientific disciplines. For nearly fifty years, he has brought the mountain to other people through talks and slide shows attracting thousands, and his writings and stunning photography have appeared extensively in print. With his brother, Lloyd founded the non-profit Friends of Mount Adams in 2004, promoting protection, scientific research, and stewardship of Mount Adams. Lloyd holds a Master of Marine Affairs from the University of Rhode Island and lives in Hood River, Oregon. For more info visit
