My hiking buddy, Malia and I took off for Mount Hood Oregon. 1 1/2 hour drive in 95+ degree heat to reach Timberline Lodge, which fortunately for us was only about 78 degrees! It was beautiful up there, sunny, and a slight breeze, wildflowers everywhere, lupine, asters, sulpher-buckwheat, and many others.

Mount Hood is the tallest mountain in Oregon (11,237 feet) and popular with skiers, hikers, and climbers. It is 45 miles east-southeast of Portland, Oregon.

Mt Hood was first known to the Northwest Indians as Wy'East. Geologists agree that Wy'East, like all the Cascade volcanoes, may only be "resting" from more active volcanic activity.

Wonderful capture of Mount Hood, Lori! I can see that this was a peaceful oasis after the heat! My only nit (and it's a small one) is that the photo appears a bit oversharpened. Otherwise great!


Hi Lori,

wonderful shot. I like this landscape very much and the blue sky, with the flowers. Well done.



Nice framing of Mount Hood, Lori. It looks very majestic against the blue sky. The soft field of flowers help to emphasize the mountain and doesn't compete with they eye as much as if they were really sharp. To my eye, I find the dark tree a bit distracting. Nonetheless, your photo makes me want to visit. Nicely done!
