Three beginning skiers take on a 22-mile trek through the Three-Sisters backcountry using a unique hut system. Oregon is home to a dazzling array of native bees. But no one knows just how many species live here, or if their numbers are declining or holding steady. Now a statewide project wants to find out. And every year, steam enthusiasts bring their boats to Klamath Lake.

After a massive bee die-off, scientists launched a new effort to determine exactly how many bee species still call Oregon home. Also, meet self-taught mechanics who build and sail steamboats. Then join three skiers on a 22-mile trek through the Three-Sisters backcountry.
