Hello dear readers and far-flung friends. It's been a long time since I've shared "my" mountain with you. We had so many months of cloudy weather and now finally we have some sunny days. So, when we headed out for some errands on Friday I took my "BGC" (Big Girl Camera) with the intent of capturing the hill with the new snow that happened over the last month.
We made our way to Jonsrud viewpoint in Sandy, Oregon which is very popular with photographers and anyone who wants to drink in this view and enjoy the fresh air. There was some haze in the air so the sky is not as blue as I would have liked, but still.. wow.
Yesterday we were invited to our son's home in Sandy for dinner, Kristi made Carne Asada Burritos. After a fun visit and delicious dinner we headed out in time to catch the late evening light on Mt. Hood.. hoping for some pink. :-)
When a mountain is lit late in the day, the light is filtered through the atmosphere and creates a colorful sunset which colors the edifice and it is called... "Alpenglow". I love that word. We waited for the mountain to turn color...
A zoom into the top of the mountain.. many people climb to the very peak.. see them up there? :-)
Ohhhh.. rosy color! This is the pinkest it got.. sometimes it will get really pink, almost red.. but today it glowed softly.
*snap* and time to head home.
On Saturday we took our 2 grandsons and a friend to see Captain Marvel. Dayle and I really enjoyed it and there were some fun moments and a cameo of Stan Lee in it. I recommend the movie. I loved seeing so many strong women in this film!
Having the sun shine on a Monday is a good thing. How are things in your neck of the woods?
I need to say a few words about the white terrorist attack in New Zealand. I'm just sick about it. Someone mentioned that these terrorists are the "white Isis". And it occurred to me that white supremacists are killing more people than foreign terrorists. What an awful state our world is in. I'm making a stand to spread acceptance of all people and hope you will do the same. We are all humans.. let's get along.
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
