Mt Hood Panorama from Sherrard Point at Larch Mountain

Mt Hood Panorama from Sherrard Point at Larch Mountain ©www.hoodphotography.com

I did the short walk up to Sherrard Point at Larch Mountain with my son, my Mom, and our family's new puppy Trillium this past weekend. The view was surprisingly still crisp and gorgeous, despite the smoke to the west from the 36 Pit Fire that is still burning outside of Estacada, Oregon. I captured this gorgeous landscape panorama of Mt Hood and her surrounding foothills, and decided I liked it enough to later emblazon it with one of my favorite quotes -- "The Mountains Are Calling and So I Must Go" -- and have it printed in a series of three 11x17 prints to display in my home.
