UPDATE: After reading about how to sharpen a photo on the Microsoft WindowsXP website, and reading again, I tried something different with my photos. I had been having these strange pixel things happening I couldn't figure out and I thought it was just my "cheap" camera and/or scanner, but when I tried the new way my photos looked much better, so it was "ME" all along!
Here's what I did that seemed to help:
Adjusted levels, contrast, brightness
Ran through Neat Image, (if needed)
Resize for Web
It seems when I do it in this order the photos look SO MUCH better....well you tell me what you think??

Mt Hood was first known to the Northwest Indians as Wy'East.

In 1792, WR Broughton of the Lewis & Clark Expedition discovered and named Mt. Hood and the river in honor of Lord Hood of British Admiralty.

Mt Hood's summit rises to 11,237 feet above sea level. Geologists agree that Wy'East , like all the Cascade volcanoes, may only be "resting" from more active volcanic activity.

The summit area is incorporated in the Mount Hood Wilderness. Several glaciers, including the Reid, Zigzag and Sandy glaciers, have developed on the west and northwest slopes of Mt. Hood, which receives up to 300 inches of snow each year.

Mt Hood is the most frequently climbed glaciated peak in North America.

I took this photo just east of the Timberline Lodge in the Middle of August. There is very little snow here this time of year, but that makes it great for hiking.

I tried brightening up this photo, but couldn't seem to get away from that washed out look, granted in the summer there isn't very much color, and the day was partly cloudy, but any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
