A Mt Hood of a past May

Because of the lousy weather lately, I have not ventured outside for any interesting photos. This weekend is different. The weather is nice today and its supposed to last through the weekend. I am going on a hike up on Mt Hood, and will be sure to get a picture of the unusual snow levels that are still accumulating up there. Today, however, I am dipping into my archive pictures for my post. This was taken in May of 2007, and as you can see, there were bare patches already on the mountain. This is NOT the case this year. Next week I will post pictures from my hike, including a recent Hood pic so you can see the comparison!

  8. Hi,

    Lovely mountains you have at your place. It's never snows here due to climate. Live in the tropics where it is always warm. The slight red colours on the sky makes the picture more interesting.

    Thanks for dropping by at my blog. Hope you have a great weekend. Have a nice day.

  15. Archives or not, what a glorious photo! I love the pink slivers in the sky, you can almost feel the frostiness just by looking at the photo. Fantastic!

  16. It is a beautiful scene. We are flat land country where corn is king and soy beans and wheat come in second and third. I sky doesn't touch the ground and doesn't go on forever. You are probably in God's country and don't know it.
