Mt. Hood’s Cold Spring Creek

Cold Spring Creek

Today is our fifth and final day of hiking around Mount Hood. Today’s photo comes from our Tamanawas Falls Hike which goes along Cold Spring Creek most of the way.

Mount Hood from Elk Meadows

Today’s photo comes from our hike yesterday. We started at the Elk Meadows Trailhead, and I made it to Elk Meadows where this photo was taken. Others kept going to Gnarl Ridge (visible in this photo). They are more tired than I am now. 😉

Mount Hood

Mt. Hood from Hood River, Oregon

Our first night on the way to The Gorge last week was spent in an RV on a friend of a friend’s property near Hood River. We pulled in after dark, enjoyed some late night discussion and beverages on the deck, and then went to bed. Upon waking up in the morning, we welcomed in a new day with a new view. I don’t really like arriving at new places after dark, but the morning surprise was neat.

Photomerged panorama of Portland, Oregon from the Pittock Mansion

Portland was clear and cold during the 2+ days we were there this past weekend. Even though I’ve been to Portland many times, this was the first time I can remember Mt. Hood being visible (although I have seen Mt. Hood from the air and from Salem before). I did a quick Google search on “Portland’s best views” or something similar and the Pittock Mansion came up. Getting there is easy from downtown Portland, but I’m guessing you can only see Mt. Hood from here this clearly a small percentage of the time. Apparently the Pittock Mansion was the ending point for one of the Amazing Race seasons, but I don’t think I watched that season as it didn’t look familiar. Unfortunately, a private party was happening inside so we could only see the outside of the mansion.
