Mt Hood at Last Light

Taken right after dusk, just before the sky gets too dark, and when the water on Trillium Lake was very calm. You can see the lights from Timberline Lodge at the timberline on the mountain.

Morning Dampness

It's the time of year that when you wake up in the morning, everything is wet with dew!

I am posting a series of photos today, hoping someone can help me solve a mystery. I was hiking behind Trillium Lake up in the Mt Hood National Forest a few weekends ago. The path I was following had taken me about a mile north of the lake. The trail was deserted; I saw no one else on the path except my dog. All of a sudden to my left I saw this car out in the bushes, about 20 ft off the path. I made my way over and the mystery began. First of all, does anyone know what kind of car this is? It had obviously been there for a really long time. Secondly, I have no idea how it got there in the middle of the woods! There is no evidence of even an old abandoned logging road out where I was, so I can't imagine how it ended up at this final resting place. Kinda creepy really. But interesting!

Wild Strawberry

These wild strawberry plants are turning red in the autumn cold.
