Mount Hood

Last week I was able to visit Mount Hood, the highest mountain in the state of Oregon. As you can see, it still had snow, in early September - it is practically snow-capped all year round. I was lucky enough that there were no clouds when I arrived close to it, but cumulus clouds soon rolled in and it was a cloudy day from then on.

One of the best places to see Mount Hood is at Trillium Lake, with a beautiful reflection of this landmark, which along with Crater Lake and the John Day Fossil Beds (which I highlighted a few days ago) are probably the three most conspicuous landmarks of Oregon.
