I think all of us who live within sight of Mt. Hood think of it as our own personal mountain. I know I do. We just enjoyed a bright sunny week, although it's been really cold and windy. Yesterday the weather people informed us that we could have an ice storm approaching. So, hubby and I went to town for lunch, then drove up to Jonsrud Point to get a photo of the mountain covered with snow before we lost sight of it due to cloud cover. My Lumix performed well for me.What is amazing, is that I took a dozen photos, standing in the same place, and they each look totally different according to how I zoomed in and out and the changing light of the sun lowering over the horizon.
This shot shows the moon above and the clouds, trees and landscape between where I stood and the mountain.Zooooom... people climb this mountain all the time. We've lost people many winters who head up there and don't take locator beacons (available to all who climb), or aren't properly qualified and equipped, or get caught by storms. That is why I haven't climbed it. :-)
Cool cloud formations and moon up there.
Pretty pretty moon.
This is the Sandy River which eventually runs nearby our home - it's fed from snow from the mountain and our infamous rain.
How cool would it be to own that farm there and have that mountain looming over you?
Wild, craggy thing. They call this a young mountain... the older ones are smoother on the top.
What is your favorite photo? So, we plan to try to keep warm today and stay home as the predicted freezing rain occurs. We got a nice big beef roast at the grocery store on our way home yesterday, and a bag of Yukon gold potatoes, fresh celery and carrots. I see a roast beef in our future. :-) I hope you're enjoying your week! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
