Editor's Note: We couldn't help but notice a string of excellent photos shot on Mt. Hood by PM Photos recently. Turns out that PM stands for Paz Mendez, a Govy-based photographer specializing in snow, skate, families and nature. Paz and his partner Tara agreed to share some shots from two lively events at Timberline: the Airblaster Board Games April 16th and the Yobeat Long Jump April 17th.

Big thanks to Paz, Tara and PM Photos.
