For years, he’s heard rumors of a rock on Mount Hood’s Cooper Spur with a Japanese engraving.
He was determined to find it.
“I was fascinated,” said Marbach to OPB.
So fascinated he’s gone on three journeys in a bid to find the boulder. This is not just any journey. It’s 11,000 feet up one of the most majestic mountains in the country.
Marbach ended up finding the engraving almost by acccident.
He sat down on a rock for lunch. He Looked down and there it was.
The engravings name two people–Takahshi from Japan’s Hiroshima Prefecture and Itoh from the Mie Prefecture. But who were these people and what was their inspiration?
Finding out may be Peter’s next adventure. You can read about that in OPB.
