I am most certainly no expert, but I rather doubt if this group are actually climbing the mountain, just from the "unsafe attire" they are wearing. My guess is that they are just playing around in the snow. My take is that with the hats they are wearing they are NOT the "hearty mountain climbers. If they attempted to climb dressed thus, it is douftful they they got very far.

My guess is 1905, give or take a couple years.

I took a quick glance through past HHR photos of hats. I didn't find any matching ladies and their hats.
Any clue where they are on the mountain?
It appears that the younger ladies wore the shorter skirts, but the older ladies stuck with the long skirts that drag in the snow. Yuk!

Mt Rainier from Muir snowfield?

Good call, Kevin. This does seem to be Mt. Rainier. I'm not sure if these are Hood River residents or if this is a random image that wound up in our collection. The tag mentions Crag Rats, but I think the image is from before the founding of the Crag Rats.

Thumbs up to Kevin!
That might be why there are couple of Park Ranger looking dudes?

Yes, it is prior to the founding of the Crag Rats, just from the way the women are dressed.

Yes, it's definitely above Paradise on Mt. Rainier.
