On top of Mt. Hood, the original 105 charter fellows of the Mazamas founded their organization 122 years ago, on 19 July 1894. Since the format’s founding, the Mazamas have fought for environmental preservation, built a slew of lodges, named Mt. Mazama, and, of course, promoted and taught basic climbing edification.
